Man vs. Domicile: 12 Pack

Man vs. Domocile

Shortening the 12 Pack

I hear that “Man vs. Wild” is pretty popular. I hereby create “Man vs. Domicile.” One man’s struggle to survive in the savage domestic living space.

In this episode, I find that a 12-pack does not fit into the fridge at work. This is frustrating, because a 12-Pack like this is specifically designed for refrigerators. But the door won’t close with it in there!

I have triumphed over this hostile environment by ripping open the 12-pack, taking 2 of the cans out of and bending back the cardboard both to keep the remaining cans in and shorten the box so the fridge door closes.

Man vs. Domicile. Man wins again.

So like the authenticity of Man vs Wild is being questioned... I question your win over the domicile!!! I bet you had help from your coworkers while they filmed you collapsing the box! IT's a FAKE I say! ;)

I can only assure you based on the strength of my word that I overcame this hardship on my own. No camera crew was used. But I can understand your skepticism based on the harshness of the environment and the lack of honor that some other people have exhibited.

Did you use a food stylist? That's a really good picture...

The 12 packs won't fit in my home fridge. Tonic makers don't like apartment dwellers. :(

It's all part of the challenge of your natural habitat. You must find a balance between adjusting to the elements and bending your environment to your will!

Your lack of god is punishing you for drinking the travesty that is Cherry Coke Zero. My Diet Vanilla Coke fit PERFECTLY in MY fridge.

I hate the Coca-Cola company.

I wrote to Coke yesterday and asked why it is that I can't find Coke with lime anywhere (NOT diet--blech).

Coke now emails me when they come out with a new product and I fail to post about it within a month.
