jon's pears

It's 4:53 PM. Long day at the office. My esteemed colleague Jon, tired from a long day's work returns to his office craving a fresh can of... pears. Actually, they're not fresh. The can of pears has been sitting in his desk drawer for months, maybe years. He finally brought a can opener into work earlier this week so that he'd have one on hand just-in-case. Came in useful today.

Jon was proud of his Spoiled-Chef can opener, or Coddled-Chef... whatever it is, I can't remember. He demonstrates how it has a handy little magnet on the top of it to lift the cut can lid from the can and transfer it to the waste basket without touching it at all. Oh wait - magnet failure. He dropped the lid. Pear juice everywhere.

Come on Jon.
