When cooking is dangerous.

I have kept this email for a few weeks now, because it cracks me up every time I read it:

URGENT NOTICE REGARDING POTENTIAL FIRE AND SAFETY HAZARD IN RECIPE FOR ICEBOX ROLLS ON PAGE 154 OF THE APRIL 2004 ISSUE OF SOUTHERN LIVING

Please DO NOT USE the Icebox Rolls recipe. Combining the water and shortening as described in the recipe may cause the mixture to ignite, is extremely dangerous, and could result in fire and safety hazards.

Whatever I expected it to say, it wasn’t that the recipe would ignite. Mike was sitting by the computer when I got this, and we promptly became hysterical as we imagined spontaneously combusting icebox rolls.

Maybe it was just us?
