Use the Fork, Luke
I was pleasantly suprised to discover that our 220 volt stove receptacle has the patented "Pronged Voltage Redirection Unit." What is a PVRU, you ask? It's a nasty dinner fork jammed into the socket. Every home should have one. Makes dazzling sparks when it ignites clusters of cobwebs and melts portions of the fusebox down in the cellar -- fun for the whole family. Our friend Charlie did surgery on it and now everything is cool. We definitely have electrical issues that go beyond flatware. When someone says, "whoa. I've never seen anything like this before," and they're talking about a painting or a piece of jewelry, then it's a good thing. But when it's your home inspector talking about the wiring in your house it's a bad thing.
