A Boil In The Bag Blog

This blog is designed to be heated from either frozen or thawed. Use a pot big enough to hold 1 to 1 ½ gallons of water. Bring water to a rolling boil. At least 24 hours earlier you should have printed out a copy of this blog, placed it in an supermarket carrier bag and frozen. Remove blog from your freezer (or fridge if you have defrosted it – please note once frozen this blog should always be defrosted in a fridge and never at room temperature), place in boiling water and set a timer according how soggy you like your prose. When the timer goes off, carefully pour the hot water and bagged blog into a colander that has been placed in a clean sink. Once all the water has drained, open the bag and carefully pour the blog into a serving dish and offer for sale as a work of art for £5000 (or your local currency equivalent). You should film the printing, freezing and boiling of this blog. Edited highlights may be posted on YouTube, Vimeo and other web platforms of your choice.

I prefer to boil my underpants but my landlady complains whenever I do this! Could I come round to your place and boil my underpants on your gas ring?

I’m keen on the word ‘boil’.

Yes it has a lovely ring to it doesn’t it – and also brings to my mind that quote from Marx: “The bourgeoisie will remember my carbuncles until their dying day…”

But isn’t broil and even better word than boil?

Gimmie that Home cookin’!

I followed the directions closely and it turned out perfect. I had it with some quinoa and fried veggies.

Groovy – you can’t beat a ten thousand dollar meal like that!

I printed out this blog and tried broiling it – only to find it really caught fire!

I kept your blog down my underpants when I went out clubbing last night – and now it smells rank enough to please a sneaker sniffer!

This is even better than cutting up a newspaper article and pulling the words randomly out of a hat to create a poem…. Freezing and boiling ink-jet printed words results in them all disappearing. You’ve created a blank blog – anyone can read anything they want into this!

What do you do if you don’t have a freezer?

Comment by mistertrippy on 2012-06-24 22:18:05 +0000

Use ice or ask someone with a freezer to let you put your bagged blog in their freezer….

You’ve been listening to old Adam and the Ants tunes again haven’t you! And specifically The Boil In The Bag Man which is available legitimately in the Ant Box, and on a slew of bootlegs.

This post and your blog are straight from the fridge daddio!

Don’t you think this waters down the original outrageous premise of Web 2.0?

Join the revolution against boring ready meals!

If only it was as easy to make LSD as a boil in the bag blog!

Comment by James Black on 2012-06-25 19:25:15 +0000

So are you eating your own words?

Comment by mistertrippy on 2012-06-25 22:25:31 +0000

No I’m selling them as art at £5000 a pop!

I lost my heart to a boil in the bag blog!
