I got a funny email w/o a name but with this avatar.
They sought it with thimbles, they sought it with care; They pursued it with forks and hope; They threatened its life with a railway-share; They charmed it with smiles and soap.

High probability it's a scam, so be careful.

Is there a situation more anxiety-provoking than washing the dishes with a sponge you don't know the past life of?

How long have you known this sponge? Where did you meet? Will you be seeing it again?

I’ve had relationships with some sponges lasting longer than with ladies.

And sometimes it’s best not to know.

Are you the jealous type?

Does anyone use the microwave on anything but maximum power?

I have also ever wondered! I mean just like if CERN's LHC beneath my slippers had a "slow" mode.

Remember, when you wash dishes with a sponge, you are essentially washing dishes with all the dishes the sponge has had relations with for the past five years.

If you use a microwave to defrost something, it will use a lower power.

But you would only use a microwave to defrost something if you like your meat gray.

Which I guess wouldn't rule it out for most Brits ...

That's a surprisingly robust assertion.

But there are exceptions: salmon; pesto; palak paneer (the palak part, at least); mango; probably several tomato-based sauces.

You're not suggesting eating US beef..
