The Dust Rag Makes Jon Farleigh Homicidal (and other household evil)

A while back I published a post called Vacuuming with a Vacuum Terrorist, which included a video of Dewi going postal on the end of my high-powered vacuum nozzle.

A little while after that I published a post called Neuroses, in which I confessed Jon Farleigh's bizarre disdain for the sound of all salt/pepper/sugar/spice shakers - to the point that I can't even open my spice drawer without him having a meltdown, moaning and shoving his head under my hand, as if to protect me from some evil presence that I can't see.

What I have yet to spill (until this moment), however, is that dust rags (cloths/Swiffers/gloves/whatever) that are in my hand, and in the process of trapping dust from hard surfaces, make Jon Farleigh homicidal (with intent to kill the thing trapping the dust).

Like so:

If you can't see the video, go here.

(Oh, and - as you can see {and hear} in the video - when Jon Farleigh goes after the duster, Dewi barks incessantly, trying to get both of our attention.)

So I can't vacuum, cook or dust without the dogs going completely bats**t crazy.

Could it be a sign that someone other than me is supposed to complete these menial tasks from here on out?

Yeah, more like a sign that the dogs need to GO DIRECTLY TO JAIL while I vacuum, cook and dust around them.

We must rid this house of the evil.

It's no wonder that I don't do menial chores more often. ;)

It's almost Friday! Yay!


  1. Nice work guys! Housework is evil :) Have a great Friday!!

  2. I have to agree with his sentiment! Housework is evil! So evil, in fact, that when I opened the house up this week, tumbleweeds of Shepherd fur took flight. *sigh*

  3. You should just take the hint.... :-)

    Jimmy goes ape-$hit over brooms!

  4. very funny. Lita hates the vacuum too, and gets weary of the dust mop.

  5. those monsters are all over the place!!
    Benny & Lily

  6. Haha, seems like a good excuse to skip those tasks. Can't have the furry-ones upset. Maybe you could give lessons so the rest of us could have that excuse. lol


We love comments almost as much as Reese's Peanut Butter Cups! Thank you!
