A giant Thing-A-Ma-Bob has caused quite a conundrum for a local family.
An eager sailor, who agreed to speak to us on the condition of anonymity, is at his wits end after purchasing a giant Thing-A-Ma-Bob for his sailboat.
“I’m at my wits end,” stated the eager sailor. His wife agreed that he was indeed witless.
The eager sailor, unsuspecting anything was awry, purchased the Thing-A-Ma-Bob completely unaware it came with the following instructions:
CAUTION: UNCOIL WITHIN 2 WEEKS OF RECEIVING
The dilemma arose upon realizing the Thing-A-Ma-Bob, when uncoiled, would reach a length of 28' of inflexible plastic and the longest space within this family's house is only 22'.
When suggested the Thing-A-Ma-Bob be uncoiled outside, the eager sailor cried, "Have you seen my yard? Likewise, attaching the Thing-A-Ma-Bob to the snowed-in sailboat is next to impossible.
For now, there's nothing this confounded family can do except hope for some warmer weather. We will keep you updated on this story as it unravels.
And in other news, Environment Canada predicts the snow and cold weather will linger well into Spring.
