: The Refrigerator
Jan 19, 2007

Back in time, way before refrigeration, ice houses were used to store perishable food, they were near freshwater lakes or packed with snow and ice in winter. Artificial refrigeration was first achieved in the mid 1700’s and improved in the 1800’s. By the mid 1800’s we could even make ice. For storing food at home, people used iceboxes, they would regularly have to replace the ice in them. This ice came from the large machines of the time that could produce them, or it was cut from frozen rivers. It wasn’t until the early 1900’s that refrigerators in the home became a reality.

I can’t even imagine living without my fridge.

The Book

I’m working on the book. Come to the new forum, I’ve started a thread on it.

Also why not use the forum for chatting, better than in the comments or even the little chatbox, give it a try. There are also forums there for all Wally & Osborne’s new Lunchbox Funnies pals. To the Forum!


  1. Phizlo says:

    Yay, First Comment! That’s a nice fridge Wally made. It’s so real, with the cold ice and everything. Too bad Osborne found out it doesn’t really work. 🙂

  2. Cheetahfox says:

    First comment, w00t. I was just looking though the archives and saw this.

    Anyway, great comic! By the way, when will that unnamed poor penguin return? He was funny and scary at the same time. 🙂

    Here’s another review paragraph.

    Baby Facts
    Adult female emperor penguins lay only one egg every winter. Emperor penguin babies are called chicks. When They are 45-50 days old, they gather in large groups called “creches”. Parents feed their ckicks every 3-4 days.

    This is one of my longest! I hope you enjoy. There will be another paragraph next comic. I’m gonna go to Club Penguin! Bye!

    You never now what to expect from Wally. I think it’s cool they are back at their house. We haven’t seen that in a little while.

    Is it just me or are the clouds a little different looking than today? 😕

  11. ha ha good one tyler I loved it!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. zeel says:

    I agre the clods are diferent thay have swerly things in them!

    dont forget to visit my web site!

  13. Hermes says:

    In my parent’s house they have an old ‘refrigerator’. It’s a pantry with a shoot below it to fill with ice, and the pantry has holes in the bottop of it so that the cold corculates. Theres more to it, but I have no idea how it could have really been efficient. Pretty much Ice drawer, food on top. I would have put it all together. 🙂

  14. hey!!! i love this comic!!!
    p.s. im penguin……

  15. im gonna stop doing my daily obvious penguin facts bcuz there’s nit very much obvious things about penguins.

    p.s. this is penguin………..luvr…………20!

  16. :mrgreen:

    i like the “refrigerator” !!!

  17. i love Wally’s “fridge”!!!! it is hilarious!!!! and Osborne with his coffee!!! is there even anything in the cup? who knows?

  18. Lee says:

    Cute idea, but I hate to break it to you… a beer commercial already did something similar. : (

  19. Cristina says:

    I like the way wally spells “fridge”
    frij backwards

  20. Cristina says:

    i mean with a backwards r

  21. OrAnGe JuIcE says:

    Yeah, the clouds are different. The remind me of those little chocolate cakes with the curly white icing on them. I forgot what they were called.
    Plus Cristina, I think that’s a backward uppercase ‘g’, or a j, who knows?
    AND, what was Osborn eating? They sort of looked loke caviar. Or maybe it was coffee powder. Plus, what’s the point of a frige in Antartica?
    PLUS, it looks more like a microwave than a frige, and I think that would actually help more.
    I’m really hyper. I just had a bag of Hershey’s kisses. But for some reason, this strip reminds me of the “magic frige” commercial; the one where the wall swivels to hide the beer and the guys on the other side take it all. Then they hail the wall. I’m just random from all the chocolate I just ate.

  22. zeel says:

    hmmmm… a microvave that wold be vary useful maby osborne cold eat WORM fish thogh wally probibly woldint use it (choclit melts wen hot ya thatl refresh the memory)

    I persoily hate choclet but thats my opinyon

  23. Penguin Guru says:

    Yah! I’ve seen that comercial too. But zeel, then Wally could have hot chocolate. The clouds are different!

  24. Ishmael says:

    Wally is not that smart.

  25. Cristina says:

    I wonder if Osborne was eating Wally’s moldy salty oatmeal breakfast.

  26. Cristina says:

    from this comic:
    and the one after it.

  27. i like that coldness cloud coming from the FRIG. but y wouldnt it be like that outside?????? i wonder if it is warm in the house??? r they gonna stay in that house 4ever???????????????????????
