My neighbour likes to see his rubbish reused, and gives me all sorts of useful stuff! The latest offering is a dead freezer. The uses I've seen are for chest freezers, but this is an upright under worktop one, so a fair bit smaller.

Any suggestions about what it can be used for?

They used to curl you up into the foetal position for burial, John, so even you could probably be squeezed into that one.

Buried with opening upwards and used as a root cellar.

Won't somebody please think of the children!

To you, it's just a worn-out fridge.

But to a child it's a caravan, a ship, a castle, even a bed.

..and a death-trap! ..impossible to open from the inside.

Don't let an old fridge be a new danger to children.

Take off the door,

Or smash the lock,

Or better still, ask your local council to take it away or tell you how to dispose of it.

..before it kills a child!

A practical suggestion at last Very Happy. That's what I'd thought of, but wondered about the size.

Actually I was thinking about dogs, but the same thing applies to little humans.

Not any longer - not since fridges stopped having great big positive locking handles on them.

Both my suggestions were practical I thought!

They were, but as normal, discussion wandered a bit!

My mother once put a fox in her freezer. It never got eaten. A bit stringy, I imagine. I think she painted it instead.

I'm surprised the paint stuck to frozen hair!

I'd rather my dog stayed alive by keeping out of the freezer Shocked.
