While wandering around aimlessly through cyberspace I came across a site called wikiHow, which describes itself as “The How-To Manual That Anyone Can Write or Edit”.
Among other things, at this site you can learn how to camp out in the rain, live with an elderly person or celebrate Earthday. Now, I’ve no idea why anyone would want to do any of those things, but disseminating information of dubious value is right up my alley, so here’s a list of articles that I’m thinking about writing that will tell you how to:
Housebreak a badger
Polish your uvula
Perform an emergency appendectomy using only a steak knife and a pair of salad tongs
Have your in-laws declared “enemy combatants” and shipped off to Guantanamo Bay
Turn your child’s old chemistry set into a whiskey still
Harvest earwax for fun and profit
Covert that useless old collection of vinyl records into a lovely coffee table
Iron your clothes while still wearing them
Cure a bad case of crabs with Tabasco sauce and sawdust
Cook a Thanksgiving Day turkey with a car battery
Well, I guess I better get started on these articles…anyone know where I can find a badger?
