Flash Frozen

Flash Frozen
(posted for the A to Z Challenge)
F is for frozen.

On April 6, 1954, Swanson introduced the first frozen TV dinner. Perhaps ironically, American explorers Matthew Henson and Robert Peary became the first to reach the North Pole on the same date in 1909.

Certainly, April 6th has become an appropriate occasion for examining the big chill in its many forms.

Flash Frozen

What’s that sticking in your craw?
Did I break unwritten law?
All I hear is “Blah, blah, blah”
And sarcastic, sad guffaw.

How began this rapid freeze?
Who did dare to sneeze, displease
He whom no one can appease?
Save your dastardly disease.

Malcontents may not be won
Once their grudges have begun.
Take your chilly grievance gun.
Tuck your tail in, turn and run.

  1. I love the irony of the two discoveries happening on the same date :-)

  2. I love your site and as I browsed your blog I decided to award you the Creative Blog Award.
    Go to and pick up your award.

  3. Frozen dinners have saved me many a time - sadly my favourite brand seems to have disappeared from my local supermarket!

  4. I think I need to get a sweater now. :O)

  5. Love it. How ironic that these events happened on the same day in history. Give me fresh food any time though rather than pre-processed tv dinners.
