“My wife just gave me a restraining order. Who knew there was a correct way to use a colander?”

A colander is a kitchen utensil used to strain foods. “My wife told me I was using the colander incorrectly, so she gave me a restraining order...” was posted on Twitter by Aussie_dad_jokes on July 13, 2019. “My wife just gave me a restraining order.

“When making macaroni and cheese I didn’t use the colander long enough, and wife gave me a restraining order” is a similar colander “restraining order” joke.


Wikipedia: Colander
A colander (or cullender) is a kitchen utensil used to strain foods such as pasta or to rinse vegetables.[1] The perforated nature of the colander allows liquid to drain through while retaining the solids inside. It is sometimes also called a pasta strainer or kitchen sieve.
