    Gerald never had a good grip on how to use a microwave oven.

    Even if he’s found a way to override the safety, I hope he’s using a wooden skewer and doesn’t have a pacemaker.

    Gerald, that’s not gonna work. Have you got a toaster oven, maybe?

    Try blowing on it. As long as the room air is cooler than your body temperature, that should warm it up a bit.

    For Gerald’s sake, I truly hope his method isn’t working.

    But if it is, I agree with Farside.


    If you don’t mind a mess, you can turn around and roast that puppy right over an open stove burner…

    At least it’ll char, and taste of a gas campfire.

    Less messy to just char 2 or 3 on the burner in a little cast iron skillet … it’ll still remind you of camping.

    Keeping the door open is not a smart thing!

    Factually based realists are such a bore, I know, but I’ll just point out that MW ovens won’t run when the door is open – some kind of saftey concern? But heck it’s only a cartoon, so anything goes.

    Looking at that picture, if it was in our kitchen he would be waiting forever. When the microwave oven door is open, ours will not operate.

    I am hoping he’s skewering the results of the microwave instead of trying to cook it with the door open. Today is National Put it on a Stick Day. Ballardians are so timely.

    Well, since micro-waves would also kill brain cells, this explains a lot.

    Get used to it, Gerald. As Charlie Brown once famously said, “Summers fly. Winters walk.”
