Universal Dispenser II

If you happen to own a Kenmore side-by-side refrigerator (or one of its sisters of a different name), there's something you should know, other than how NOT to use it to dispense Coke.

While removing my Coke slushy from the ice reservoir, I determined that a mixture of ice, Coke, and running water tends to produce some very sharp ice cubes. These icy razors don't last long enough to serve a useful purpose, unless you think combining the medieval practice of bloodletting with the 1970's practice of making a Coke Icee to be useful.

Given that this fiasco happened at the end of a very long day, my reaction was somewhat similar to that of Tom Hanks' character in Money Pit when his evening bath went awry.

Be safe out there. The kitchen is no place for a hurry-up offense.
