Help - First world problem - Help

26th February 2016

Last night whilst cooking what should have been the simplest of dinners I was faced with complete disaster.  There are many things that could go wrong whilst in the kitchen but none more so than harsh realisation that your Baked Beans won't be leaving their tin any time soon...

The handy ring pull pulled off in my clumsy hands causing a dilemma of enormous proportions.  Do I begin to bash the lid with a fork risking a trip to A&E, do as suggested by friend’s and blow up with a firework, throw at the wall or do I simply spend some time looking for a tin opener?  Now as caveman as using a tin opener is that's exactly what happened and once again all was well with the world. 

Should this ever happen to you though some more solutions suggested by listeners to help?


Trevor - hammer chisel

Debbie - Order a Chinese

Cameron - Use and axe

Liam - Put it in the door and slam it

Matthew - Rub it on a hard concrete surface. The rim will wear down until lid comes off.

Jamie - Blow torch it open, has the advantage of hearing them up at the same time
