It's nearly Thanksgiving, which means a big dinner, which means the Book
Elves have to polish the silver. The Book Elves hate polishing the silver.
This year they decided to "shorten" the task and had a go at it with a
concoction they saw advertised on late night tv called "Blast Off! Super
Silver Polish and Drain Cleaner".
It turns out there were two reasons it was called "Blast Off!". The first
is that it removed the tines from all the forks. The second is that it
turned out to be highly flammable, as they found out when they turned on
the gas stove to boil water for tea in the middle of the job.
But before the explosion gave the turkey (and the rest of the kitchen)
that "nice smoky flavor" and we got re-acquainted with the friendly
fire-department folks from three adjoining towns, the Book Elves finished
our latest catalog-
