Bungee Cord Cupboards
on October 7, 2013 at 12:00 am
Bungee cords aren’t just for jumping off of tall structures. They can be used to aggravate your family and friends, too.
Wombat Day is two weeks and one day away! If you’re planning to celebrate this year, you’d better stock up on wine gums before the Wombies clear out the stores. For those of you who cannot get wine gums locally, a reasonable substitute is Swedish Fish which are considered a “wine gum candy” but seem much sweeter than good old fashioned English wine gums.
Somebody (or something) is going to snap! 🙂
I think Chris snapped a long time ago!
I agree, he has definitely snapped this time 🙁
I think Chris should have snacked instead of snapped. Snacking is a lot more tasty!
Maybe he likes snacking on flies! 😀
Not snacking on Loon I hope!
Look out Loon Chris is
having a fly eating moment 🙂
That has been greatly exaggerated!
This Kitchen-Wombie-proofing method should cut down Chris’ food bill by a lot. Hey you guys, if Chris has a spare bungee cord you could try jumping off the roof. That’s be fun!!!
That sounds like fun! I’ll go check!
That may be not such a good idea. 🙂
It sounds good to me! But Chris wouldn’t let us toboggan off the roof either!
Maybe Chris could try it out first, and then while he is busy bobbing up and down you can work on those bungee drawer and cupboard fastenings, hopefully by the time Chris gets back you will have cleaned out all the yummy stuff 🙂
That would be a good idea if we could get Chris up on the roof and tied up to a bungee without him noticing it.
Yes maybe Winky has some ideas? 🙂
My idea is to have some wine gums and think about it.
My mom use to do this with our dog when we were kids 😉
Maybe you can bungee cord the fridge door too!
So that’s what wine gums look like. Yummy! No wonder they’re a Wombie favorite.
Don’t give Chris any ideas!
Yep! Those are wine gums! They’re the best!
Yes wine gums are
extra yummy indeed 🙂
You’re telling me!
I sure am 🙂
And I’m agreeing!
They will find a way around those bungee cords. You’ll see. They are most clever.
We start our bay cruise this coming Thursday, but I’ll be joining in for the celebration. I always do.
Have a fabulous day. 🙂
They probably will.
We’re always glad to have you join our Wombat Day festivities, Sandee. And have a great cruise!
You could attach bungee cords to the doors so Chris couldn’t leave the house. 🙂
We should put the bungees on the doors so Chris can’t get in!
But then how can he feed you chocolate and wine gums?
Umm that might be a problem. Maybe we could use his credit cards and order chocolate and wine gums online!
If he keeps his cards with him at all times, how could you do that?
I dunno. Maybe we will have to let Chris in the house. But only to pay for our chocolate!
What will you do with him the rest of the time?
There’s a nice dog house out back that Winky made. Maybe he could stay in there.
Don’t bite the hand that feeds you. 😉
Other people have told me that before. I don’t know why.
Woops. Day off and I forgot about commenting first. 🙁
There are actually hinges that make the door snap back in place. It can hurt your fingers if you’re not careful.
They probably wouldn’t want any smashed fingers in the cereal. 🙂
I bet zombies would! They like fingers!
Smashed wombie fingers don’t sound appetizing.
I don’t think so either. But zombies like to eat icky stuff!
Those hinges sound really mean! I hope Chris doesn’t get them.
I don’t like the ones that snap. I like the ones that make the door glide back into place.
I guess they’d be better than the snappy ones.
He should have paid an army of dwarves to hold them closed.
Well he better not pay them in chocolate because the chocolate is ours!
How about in wine gums?
Not that either! He could pay them in broccoli. That’d be good.
There are people who hate vegetables. 🙂
And some Wombies too!
Bungees and duct tape – the secret to great parenting.
I don’t think you should be giving Chris any more ideas!
Why do I suspect that someone’s gonna spring a finger or two playing this game. The snap-back is gonna be legendary.
I didn’t know this was a game! I wonder how I can win?
The one with the most fingers wins!
I better win then!
This is a brilliant cartoon Peter, I like the look on Fraz’s face as he desperately tries opening that drawer 🙂 You can see the great effort he is putting into it, but the drawer id jameed shut, Chris is getting worse I think? 🙁
Thanks, Andro. I think it’s just that Chris’s nerves are getting a little frayed. It’s been almost ten years that he’s had to put with their antics.
Yes but he is much better off for it, mind you it’s a pity that Chris doesn’t realise that though 🙁
We often don’t appreciate what we have at the time.
Thank you for adding ‘Winky’s Surprise in your side bar Peter I have only just noticed that one 🙂 I think that I will watch it before I go 🙂 lol
Have a wine gum tasting evening Peter, that’s if the Wombies haven’t eaten them all yet? 🙁 lol
You’re welcome, Andro. Your new video belonged up there with the others. I was able to sneak a new bag of wine gums in without anyone noticing, so I actually have some for once.
I bet you enjoyed them 🙂
I’m saving them for a special occasion.
Now I know where to hide my wine gums
I think you might need a safe as well, it there are any Wombies in your neighborhood.
Wombate proofing not good.
It’s very uncool!
Sheez, you should just hide the treats behind the broccoli. They will never think to look there 😉
I’ll look there now!!
Hurrah for Wombat Day!!
It’s the best day of the year to be a Wombie!
Bungee cords? Not happening! 🙂
Great cartoon strip.
Tell Chris that!
That’s a really good way to keep the stuff in the drawers safe!
Maybe if it was my stuff it’d be ok!
Can’t wait for the big party #october22 🙂
Me neither!! All day chocolate and wine gums and wombat games!
Bungee jumping down from the drawers could be fun.
Why didn’t I think of that?!
Hey! They might loose some weight. 🙂
Chris can’t keep us from our wine gums!
Oh dear…poor wombs 🙁
I hope the chocolates aren’t kept in those cupboards! That would be criminal!!
I keep my chocolate in my safe!
That’s an excellent idea Winky! Hope you don’t misplace the combination or password to it thought!
That’s one thing I’d never ever forget!
But opening the doors and letting them slam shut could be a different kind of fun! 😀
Maybe we could have a cupboard band!
Closure is a good thing!
I’d like the cupboards to be open so I can get my snacks!
Be careful not to get your hand in there and let go of the drawer or the cabinet…ouch! 🙂
Don’t worry. I can’t even get it open!
It was cruel 😉
It was! Especially to me cause I couldn’t even open the cupboards anymore!
What happen if Chris wants to take something from the cupboard?
You know, I have never heard of winegum before you guys mention about it.
Chris is strong enough to open the cupboards! But it’s hard for me.
Binky says wine gums are hard to get in a lot of places. But they’re worth finding!
Is wine gum made of wine? so it’s alcoholic.
Ah…Chris is a smart man 😉
No, wine gums don’t have any alcohol in them. They’re just fruity flavoured candy.
Fraz looks likes he’s about to pop the handle off!
I bet Winky would be strong enough to do that!
