Making Outlets Inlets

We asked you to write a haiku about your air travel experiences in last week's Game Time. You did not disappoint. We had some good answers, but here was our favorite:

Not many choices
But this is inedible
Mama Ilardo's

That entry was submitted by TONY. No need to shout, Tony, we can hear you fine. Ah, but then maybe you are hard of hearing, in which case, CONGRATULATIONS.

Yesterday, Mike thought that a more appropriate name for an "outlet" was an "inlet." We liked the idea, and made it this week's game:

Give a household item a more appropriate name.

Winner, as always, gets a shout-out. So, put on your thinking caps, and post your ideas in the comments.


  1. I'd call a doorknob a door opener. Makes more sense.

  2. I would call a computer a solitaire machine because let's face it, that is pretty much all we do on it anyway.

  3. i would call my toaster "the bread burner"

  4. I'd call my alarm clock the "bane of my existence"

  5. I'd call my computer's mouse a rat.
    It's bigger than the mice in my house anyway.

  6. I would call my speakers "singers".
    They definitely sing more than they speak to me.
