Unbelievably Unbreakable, Huh?

I was combing through an old purse and I found a comb which had the words : “unbreakable” embossed on the side. I thought, Yep…it still has all of it’s teeth. Then, a hair-brained thought broke into my childish brain…”Is it really unbreakable? How unbreakable is it?” So, I tried to bend it. Just as […]
