IKEA Assembly Blues

Noticed in the latest bulletin the good bad and the ugly of IKEA included in the ugly section was a 1,000 piece wooden jigsaw masquerading as a cot.

My cousin Terry bought one of these and had to cut the end off it because his son’s legs had outgrown the cot before Terry finished assembling the thing. Not surprising since the lad was going into high school by that stage.

On the plus side Terry finished about 215 slabs of beer along the way.

Sadly he became arthritic and couldn’t get up off the floor so his son had to finish the assembly himself.*

*. Not actually true.
