*** Special thanks to my wife for this one, who has, to date, never discarded an empty anything. However, through the same malevolent forces that separate matched socks, we find ourselves with a cupboard full of ‘Tupperware’ lids. The only possibility is that there is a tiny black hole in that cupboard, that is sucking those containers through a wormhole to another already littered with single socks universe.

  1. Very funny!

    When I was growing up, the only Tupperware(tm) we had was a huge collection of empty, plastic butter containers. If there was even a scrap of food left over from a meal, my Mom would put the spoonful of whatever it was in a butter container and then in the refrigerator. I used to get so mad trying to find the actual butter but instead finding container after container of butterbeans, squash, black-eyed peas, corned-beef-hash, collard greens, macaroni-and-cheese, etc etc etc. I swore way back then, in the style of Scarlet O’Hara in the decimated potato field, “As God is my witness, I will never use butter containers as Tupperware(tm) again!” And I haven’t. Though others in my family have carried on the tradition, much to my consternation.

    Very funny stuff! Keep the great cartoons coming!

  2. haha the shell game with plastic containers! Pardon me. Tupperware (TM).

    My sister and I roll our eyes at our mother’s penchant for wrapping leftovers in tin foil and throwing it in the freezer. Every few months, guess what the garbage is full of?

    Thanks for hanging out and throwing a like Biff.

  3. You need to find your alternate universe household that has your containers! Nothing worse than filling a container and not being able to find a lid to fit it. Hey send me your lids!
