To set housework to music. Appropriate songs obviously. Son of Preacher man by Dusty Springfield when dusting Gran's old bible. Ra Ra Rasputin while polishing the Russian dolls on the mantlepiece. Please Please Me by the Beatles when sorting your dildos into size order. That kind of thing.

A feathery prop that came with the "French Maid" costume at the porn shop. The actual "feathers" are a choke hazard.

A wire noose carefully positioned inside an up and over garage door to capture and strangle pretentious motorcyclists who think their over-priced bike is too precious to live outside.  The door hoisting mechanism is strong enough to finish the deadly task.

People who sell remote garage door openers use this tale to scare customers into buying their product.

Something else health-related we're all meant to worry about now.  Hypertension isn't enough - now we've got to be on the alert for pre-tension, which is what comes before.  Funnily enough, we always used to call this feeling perfectly well.

That faint smell you briefly encounter when removing the top cover of an empty cake tin which hasn't contained anything for 'quite some time'.  (A flexible English time measurement which can be anything from a several days to a couple of years.)  Despite there being no visible crumbs or cake residue there will always be a faint hint.  Discerning noses can tell if the last occupant was cakes or biscuits.

Interestingly it makes no difference if the 'tin' is traditional metal or a more modern plastic.
