Ed, you are a funny mf.  Lunch on me next time!  (Promise it won't be squirrel)

Feels like this category is starting to get competitive!

How about the back story? 

Is that a skull?

When I first walked into the basement and looked at the top of the water heater I did a double take and said to the auditor I was with,  "Hmmmmm.  Doesn't that look an awful lot like a vertabra?"  I rapped my knuckles on the vertical flue and it felt oddly . . . well . . . stuffed -- like a sausage casing.  It was hard not to note the evidence of long-term spillage.  So I gave it a shake and the bones began to tumble out . . .

So yes, it is most definitely a skull!

Looks like you stumbled into some kind of Voodoo Ritual Site!

 

You have raised the bar for WTF? The real question for building scientists is, did he/she die of CO poisoning, or heat exhaustion?

Playing Santa Claus?

I've wondered how, if I ever had kids, I would explain that, "Yes, we have a chimney; but no, we don't have a fire place; the chimney comes out in the furnace and the water heater vent. So logically, Santa must then enter the house via a gas-fired appliance." I fear this would be distressing for a young child - and leaving milk and cookies on top of the water heater lacks a certain festive cheer.
