- You can bounce a potato quite well on linoleum. Not so well with lightbulbs.
- You can eat a potato in a variety of ways. Lightbulbs? Only if you're the Adams' Family.
- While you can draw electricity from a potato, a lightbulb is much better for lighting a room.
- I'm not sure where lightbulbs grow, but potatoes are in the field just down the street from here in chilly Idaho (well, soon anyway).
My handy dandy tip for today:
If a lightbulb breaks in the socket and you don't feel like
Cut a potato in half squat-ways (through the widest part, not lengthwise). Pop that tater half, cut side up, onto the broken ends of the lightbulb. Gently unscrew the bulbs. WAAAHHHLLAAA! Removed lightbulb without trip to emergency care.
Another method, though not so fun and a bit more work/expense: Get yourself a Kirby vacuum and use the handydandy attachment that comes with it for head massage (I kid you NOT) and lightbulb removal. Suction on or off, I don't know but it probably doesn't matter.
Personally, I never have had a lightbulb break in the socket, but you never know. And since potatoes are a pantry staple, I'll never be without one. WORKS FOR ME!
