How to Make a Pan EXPLODE!!!

Items needed:

  • 1 8x8 glass baking dish

  • an electric stovetop range

  • a COLD granite countertop

  • 1 spoon full of hot spaghetti sauce with meat

  • Cooking spray


Spray glass baking dish with pam. Set on front burner of stovetop range while you finish cooking the meat and add the spaghetti sauce. Notice that when you sprayed the pan with Pam you got it on the back burner. Decide to turn the back burner on to "burn off" the Pam. Forget you turned it on and leave it on for a few minutes. Turn off the burner. You will now be ready to add the meat sauce to the baking dish. Notice the Pam in the dish is turning brown and the dish is HOT. Think that it is just because you have the oven turned on and the dish got "warm". Move the HOT baking dish to the COLD granite countertop and then immediately add a heaping spoon full of the HOT spaghetti sauce with meat! Then WHAMO!!! Watch your dish immediately EXPLODE into a hundred tiny shards! Give thanks that you were wearing a thick long sleeved sweatshirt that caught the flying pieces of glass and prevented them from being embedded into the skin. Watch as your kind husband cleans up the mess while your knees are shaking and your kids are laughing! Think over what just happened and finally realize that you turned on the FRONT burner that the glass baking dish was sitting on instead of the BACK one that you THOUGHT you turned on!! Just more proof that I should NOT be cooking!!
