Welcome you clean house after iron…

Toy from China.
The little girl is battery operated
All kids are old-fangled!
Get the kiddies started young
Welcone to use batteries
Fangles not included.
I’m board … *yawn*
CAUTION: May contain batteries
When setting up the magic, the angle of the fangle is most important.
I prefer ouija board. Sometimes it even vibrates.
”Wonderful Child, Strange Shape”
Work as play; how ironic.
♫ You said you was high class, but that was just a lie!
♪ Yeah you said you was high class, but that was just a lie.
♫ Well, Y’ain’t nuthin’ but a knock-off and you ain’t no toy of mine! ♫
(A tribute to the King, who passed 40 years ago today.)
We feed our son “iron rations”.
His name’s Rusty.
Is that Aisha?
Chinese kids, appear to be more gullible, than western kids.
@Pete 0449. If he passed an Iron Board, then, his death would be expected.
Training tool for future sweatshop workers.
@Pete 0449. The KINGhas not passed.
In fact, I saw Wally just the other day.
I always wore my Steelcaps when I ironed my shirts. Every now and then the Ironing Board would collapse with a loud metallic “CLANG”. I reckon it would damn near cut your toes off, if you didn’t.
This is most certainly….A high crass toy.
It does appear that that those, Asian Devils, have solved the, toe cutting problem. They have installed a cross-brace between the legs, to make, involuntary, spontaneous, phalangeal amputation, highly unlikely.
WELL. I guess training your kids to work in sweat-shops, is slightly more socially acceptable, than selling them into prostitution.
NB. Possibly not as lucrative though.
I’m New School and Old fangled.
Sorry for delayed response, mate.
Crazy day @ work.
This one went right over my head.
Then again given my post-workday brain addled state, pretty much anything would go over my head at this point…
@Pete 1758. Playing tricks on you mate.
It would be the same if you mentioned American football. Except for Joe Montana and Giselle Bundchen. Yum yum! (her that is not him) 👄
Wally Lewis was, arguably, our best Rugby League player ever. They even have a statue of him at Lang Park (Suncorp) Stadium in Brissie. He was and is, referred to as “The King”. He had an extraordinary ability to read a game. Almost as if he had written the script earlier.
Sorry Tom Brady. I’m bragging there. Joe Montana is the only other player I have heard of..
OH YEAH! and O.J. Simpson. But that was for other reasons.🕱
Not as infamous as O, J, Simpson, but one former baseball player whose star has REALLY fallen in Chicago is Sammy Sosa.
There was the embarrassing episode where he used an illegal cork-filled bat that shattered during a game, but his popularity was falling anyway because he was such an annoying prima donna-plus he wasn’t the great baseball player he was hoped to be.
I remember during my childhood that they advertised the Easy-Bake oven,, miniature ovens that really worked and presumably were battery-powered.
@Long Tom | 9:50 pm: I can’t imagine any oven or iron powered by readily available alkaline batteries building up a useful amount of heat – you do the math. Even 15 minutes at 500w is way too much to ask from a handful of D cells.!
My thought on the battery-powered iron is that it has an electronic voice repeating “You-are-happy-in-your-play. You-will-be-happy-in-your-work.”
Actually, if you want a small, portable heat source for cooking, there are small cylindrical thingies about 5 inches in diameter that burn sticks and twigs. They have a battery but it runs a fan to force air through the fire. We used one at a camp to re-heat food and boil water and it worked great!
@DNT Thus; It is a “Fan Farced Oven”.
Hexamine tablets work great for the military, and backpackers.
Pack of 24 costs AUD$7.99.
4 will boil abt. 800ml of H2O
Composition of Hexamine:
The molecular formula of Hexamine is (CH2)6N4
The molar mass is 140.186
The density of hexamine is 1.33g/cm cube
The Boiling point is 280 degree centigrade
It is a white-crystalline powder
It is highly soluble in water and most organic substances
@DNT 0022. Most kids toys are designed to get adults in. After all, the average baby/young child, does not have much purchasing power. For instance when my oldest daughter brought home her first baby, in a fit of, (post partum induced insanity?) amongst many other things she bought him a ball. When you threw it, it didn’t bounce one thou.(.001″) It sat on the floor like the proverbial “bag of $h1t”, making boing, boing, boing, sounds. Thus I would assume when you turn this device on , it will constantly repeat; “Ironing, Ironing,Ironing, Ironing, Ironing, Ironing, Ironing, Ironing.” Until it… Read more »
Droll: A very long time ago, I would wind up having to help my little sisters figure out what to do with their more complicated Christmas presents, so I once learned how the Easy-Bake oven worked. IIRC, the heat source was a small light bulb – possibly just a flashlight bulb. (The old-fashioned incandescent kind, which produced more heat than light, and ran down a pair of D-cells in about a half-hour.) This didn’t make high enough temperatures for normal baked goods, or to seriously burn fingers, but Easy-Bake also sold mixes that only needed a little warmth to produce… Read more »
