Better than Rap.




Two days ago, my kettle suddenly started singing (above is not a particularly good example of its repetoire).

So far I've noticed a couple of Vera Lynn favourites, The Shangri-las 'Leader of the Pack', and some bits of Elvis.

No doubt the kettle is also capable of 'penning' new tunes, and I'm willing to part with it for 'a price', plus 10% of any future royalties. Offers (in cash) in a plain envelope, please, to this site.

p.s. I used to have a singing fridge. It would sing 'scales'... and really quite well!

  1. Every hour after 11 p.m. a train passes 4 miles away and sounds a gentle lullaby from its horn. I'd be willing to swap if you will pay shipping.

    1. Does the train boil water? If yes, you've got a deal.

  4. The knife looks lonely, as if it is waiting to be needed. The kettle sounds like it is in the throes of death.

    1. It was waiting to slice a few rashers of bacon for my brekky. After my fridge started singing it soon packed up, so maybe you're right.

  5. The tune needs work, it's a little monotonous until near the end. My fridge is rather melodic, though its repertoire tends toward percussion rather than melody. Maybe my fridge and your jug could get together to form a band.

    1. It was having an off-morning, recently it's been quite operatic. maybe it's singing its final few notes.

  8. I think, sadly, it's time for the kettle to R.I.P. -- with dignity!

  9. Our fridge has made a sound like a pigeon since we've had it { which is a good few years now } At first, I thought a pigeon had got in the kitchen !! I think that your kettle's on it's last legs !! XXXX

    1. It's about 4 years old, so maybe its time is up.

  10. So funny. I have a new fridge freezer that sound like an old man/woman with asthma, I have complained but apparently these new frost free one's make noises. Oh well that's progress.

  11. I think you have a ghost of a minstrel long dead trying to serenade you.
