I'm No Electrician

I got home to The Lovely Harvey wanting to know which fuse shut off the wall plugs in The Boy's room.

"Why?" I ask, innocently enough.

"A plug broke off in the outlet!"

"Lemme see," I says.

She shows me.

The ground prong of a power strip had snapped off the plug and remained in its hole.

I grabbed a pair of needle nose's and plucked it out with the power still on.

She was shocked, but I explained the ground ain't got no power to it.

We're also surprised that the power strip we were using didn't actually have wires attached to the ground prong.
