There's a plastic bit missing at the top end of the tongs.

It has a groove in it that the steel loop clips into while in use.

Needles are a bar steward to thread when you want to sew a hole up in your pants or socks.

Here's a question, why are toasters vertical rather than horizontal?

Because the toast would shoot out when it's done.

If toasters were...

Sod this, I've retired from engineering design, R&D. I'm out!

Hi KK

Loving your work with the retarded.

Respect.

Sorry no, Dave, I'm afraid to tell you...

Do you face the cistern?  Or is your back to it?

No, I'm talking number 2s.

However, there is a debate to be had about whether the modern man should sit down to pee.  Since I started cleaning my own toilet, I can see the point.

If you sit on the sink it will fall off the wall, you need to stand to pee.

After turning on the telly, I have to his  pick up the Sky Remote Controller.... and hit the following buttons to get the Sky Box on.

What the hell is all that about?  It's not just my telly... that's what the instructions said when I got it about 4 years ago.   Don't know if it's the same for everyone nowadays... but I've no idea why they make the remote so obscure and complicated.  Explaining it to the mother in law is like trying to teach here chinese.

I've seen horizontal toasters in hotels, bread goes in one side and it's got a mini conveyer belt that moves it through the toaster and pushes it out the other end.

That's incorrect. To turn the Sky box on just hit the 'Sky' button or the power button.

Apparently, this computamabob I have is supposed to make me more efficient, enabling me to be more productive during the working day.

I'm not quite sure where exactly the design fault is...
