I had this old gas fired heater in the living room of my shack. I used to sleep with it off, so the first thing that I used to do when I woke up in the winter was to turn it on and put a can of Alpo on top for a couple of minutes so Captain would have a warm meal before I threw his ass out for the day. One day I got hung up in the bathroom and flat spaced that dog food out. Until the damned thing exploded, that is. Luckily the seam was facing the wall so that kinda, sorta, almost contained the mess. However, it didn't do shit for the smell.
