Dire Plastic Packaging

Original post made by Douglas Kendall on Oct 12, 2009

I almost killed myself opening the tough plastic packaging of a computer cable from BEST BUY this weekend. God himself would have trouble getting through that plastic stuff! –- if He would have sent Jesus packaged in that, Jesus would still be with us.

And after I finally got that plastic cut open (had to borrow neighbor's chain saw again) I cut myself so badly on the razor sharp plastic that I had to get stitches down at Valleycare Hospital after they re-attached my hand to my wrist! (I wish Jesus were here -- I can't afford the deductable when I go to Valleycare because of the recession.)

Now, I did some exhaustive qualitative in-depth research (went to Wikipedia) and discovered packaging plastic was originally developed by NASA, of course, and is used for astronaut helmets. NASA 'claims' all astronauts must go into quarantine for a week when they return from the International Space Station. In actual fact, it takes up to a week to get the astronauts out of those helmets made of that damn plastic!

"if He would have sent Jesus packaged in that, Jesus would still be with us."

Hilarious!

Plastic packaging is even delaying the Second Coming of Jesus, because there are just too many of us down here cursing, swearing, and taking his name in vain every time we slice off something else while opening those damn packages...

Oh, crap! There I went again!

Oh, man, I sure hope Jesus has a BIG sense of humor; or hell is going to have a new blog: the SIZZLE & FIZZLE featuring ME !!

God would be smart enough to know that that plastic packaging that gave you so much trouble can be easily concurred by using a can opener. If you're too incompetent to figure out how this works, search youtube for a step by step demonstration.

Obviously you didn't injure yourself enough to keep you from posting your mindless drivel. Oh well, maybe next time.
