So. There I was eating my delicious subway sandwich filled with Turkey, Ham and my usual choice of condiment, mayonnaise. Scrolling through the Neowinian forms having a jolly good time a speckle of mayonnaise, unknowingly to me, decided to find a snuggled up place upon my index finger of which to settle in. Little did I know that morsel of delectable mayo' was headed right for the crevices of my website navigation tool! Before I knew it I had, what was once a delicious condiment, sprawled out within the cracks and creeks of my Mouse. "Oh no!", I proclaimed.

 

After a few minutes of searching my desk for a utility of both thinness and strength I stumbled upon an old cable tie. "Perfect!". I placed the cable tie into the crease of my Mouse and flicked out the mayonnaise AND what appears to be a timely mass of, what I'll refer to as, 'stuff'. Needless to say this ruined me finishing my sandwich. Which was already on the way out as I had just finished reading a post about the detailed reasoning behind why a member of Neowin wears underwear to protect 'sharts' from escaping. So having said all this, and you sticking by to the end, I'll be giving away a free copy of Scrolls by Mojang to a random person that posts in this thread. Only if they use the word "Meow" in their post and not directly explain, at all, the reason behind using the word. The result will be tomorrow at around this time to the winner. I'm going to have to throw out this sandwich.

 

What an adventure in mayonnaise cleaning that will go on only in my memories. Let this be a lesson. If you don't clean your mouse, don't do it while you're eating a delicious Turkey and Ham sandwich. Not only will it be disgusting, but you ruin the sandwich.

 

That is all.

Mice aren't that difficult to take apart and clean.  I've been using the same one for the last 8+ years (guesstimate).

 

[I]If[/I] it's worth your time doing.  Mice are pretty cheap, but you do get what you pay for.

Hello,

Question: What type of sandwich are we talking about exactly from Subway that spits now mayonnaise onto a poor innocent mouse that was simply trying to view what you were looking at on your PC?

Id file a lawsuit....animal cruelty.

As we pass the time, I'm reminded of the events leading up to what may well be considered the most ignorant thing I've ever done. It was the year 1998 and the going was tough. I lived in a humble (that's what well-off people call poor peoples home as to not sound quite so offensive) abode with my Father, my Mother and my Sister. It was a great and cold winter. Snow filled the ground of my Canadian town.

 

For some reason, which I cannot understand anymore, I took it upon myself to go play outside with my friend. Unfortunately, as this was a rural area, my friend was 1 kilometer away and my sole mode of transportation was my legs. Normally my parents would drive me to my friends house, but they were out to Bingo (That's what well-off people refer to as the game poor people play. so, when they finally do win, which apparently is never, they can discuss with their other poor friends what it was like to have money.... for a few hours....). If you're still reading this, the game has changed. Well, not so much the game, but the winnings. As it stands now I've found 10 steam keys laying around and I don't want them anymore. So, in 7 hours, when I announce the winner, I will also announce the 10 other prizes up for grabs. The winner of the Meow contest will get to pick any one key out of the list and the other 9 will be distributed, at random, to the other 'meow'ers. Good luck! So off I went to my friends house. A nice hike at -25 degrees celcius, if I do say so myself.

 

After a while of playing around I decided to jump on the Trampoline. I wanted to be superman so I jumped of the trampoline, into a pile of (what I thought was snow) ice. So, there I was, with a broken arm, no parents, no car, no one home for at least 8 hours. Sitting there. With a broken arm. So, if that wasn't ignorant enough. I decided time would pass quicker if I just went to sleep with it. So I did. And I didn't die of shock. And it all worked out.

 

There is no moral to this story.

I know what some of you are thinking, "That's pretty much everyone". No. It could be 1 person, 9 times.

Right meow, I'm trying to figure out, after living in Canadian winters, why you expect a snowbank to be soft. =P

One thing is certain from this thread: There is no meow that will ever affect this mouse the same again. It will be as if there are no meows at all.
