My new toy magnet (I named him Jaws !!!)

Just got my super-duper dyno-whoppin' aquarium magnet today. "Maganavore" somthing??? Anyway--after carefully reading the warning label I was monkeying with it in my lap. There is something to be said for the warning labels. As it clapped together today it decided to snatch onto my sweather and a little snippet of my belly It took one of the mates in my office to remove the carnivorous unit from me. Leaving me with a few frays on my sweater and a nice black & blue mark on my belly. Never thought this hobby could be so dangerous

Anyway--I survived the ordeal and figured you guys could get a laugh at my expense.

PS: A few inches lower and 8O

The black and blue welp on my belly has now grown to the size of a silver dollar. Looks like I got gut shot with a stun gun or something.

I was playing with my magnet one night- pulling it apart and then watching as it snapped back together. Only problem... I was laying on my back while doing it and then they slipped and landed on my forehead! I had a huge bump to show off at work the next day!
