The Refrigerator

Last week our refrigerator died. This is how I felt when the one kitchen appliance I knew how to operate became nonfunctional.

Woe is me

My sister said it was my fault the fridge died, that I killed it with magnets.

Okay, maybe there are too many magnets.

Sadly, I proved her wrong because when I removed the magnets, the fridge still didn’t work.

Still dead

The importance of a refrigerator became crystal clear once we no longer had one. Doing a little online research, I found the most expensive fridge on the market and knew if I had over $40K burning a hole in my pocket and had space to spare, I would probably use that money to buy something else.

Meneghnini La Cambus priced at only $41,500

We went for a more basic model that only keeps food cold and frozen – I know how to operate it.

Don’t I look happy with my new fridge?

If I were planning to spend an exorbitant sum on a kitchen appliance such as a fridge, I would want it to do much more than simply hold food. I’ve given this a lot of thought and have started saving money for a new genius fridge that hasn’t been invented yet. Not only will it keep food cold, it will control a robot that will drive a car, shop, cook, set the table and clean up after every meal.

Now this would be a fridge I couldn’t do without. I’d just have to make sure the robot could teach me how to use it.

May the farce be with you!

Your IFF,




Archaeologists in Mexico have made a major discovery. While excavating under the pyramid “Temple of the Feathered Serpent”, they discovered two previously unknown chambers filled with hundreds of mysterious metal spheres.

A robot made the discovery, travelling through a 330-foot tunnel filled with nearly 100 feet of debris that was placed there deliberately. (Anyone who’s ever watched Indiana Jones knows that’s a clear sign to stay away!)

Ranging in size from 4 – 12 inches and estimated to be 1,800 years old, neither the purpose nor the origin of the spheres is clear.

Their core has organic matter and they’re coated with a mineral that would have shone as a brilliant gold. The discovery is being heralded as unprecedented.

Meanwhile, 3,800 miles to the south in Chile’s Atacama Desert, a 6-inch long mummified humanoid creature was found. It has an oblong shaped head like Nefertiti and was originally thought to be of extraterrestrial origin. Identified as male, it has been nicknamed Ata (Atta-boy!).

Garry Nolan, one of the scientists who examined Ata is quoted as saying: “I can say with absolute certainty that it is not a monkey. It is human — closer to human than chimpanzees. It lived to the age of six to eight.”

Although Mr. Nolan claims Ata is human – look at his actual words: “closer to human than chimpanzees”. So which is it – human or close to human?

He further goes on to say “My interest, frankly, is to disprove that it’s anything unusual …” Agreed – there’s nothing unusual about a tiny humanoid.

One for pointing out the obvious, taken together, these two stories present a logical explanation: Ata arrived in a sphere like those discovered in Mexico and the organic cores in the center of those spheres are more Atas.

It may be far-fetched, but until someone comes up with something better – I’m going with it.

May the farce be with you!

Your IFF and Psy-Ficologist,
