My brother, Eric, and I have had something of an invention contest since we were kids. We’re always thinking and scheming, and we’ve even patented a few. This was my latest, of which my very funny brother was not initially grasping. (Apologies in advance for the slightly graphic nature of our exchange. : )

Karen: That invention in my dream. I remember what it was now — a toilet that uses compressed air instead of water…

Eric: That’s hilarious , compressed air up your hole will kill you! There won’t be anyone around to clean up the mess :)

Karen: No no no!!! Not up your hole! Compressed air to blow everything DOWN the hole. lol. You’re making fun of my multi-billion dollar idea?!

Have you ever invented anything?
