Would you rather: Come home to find that a prankster has nailed all your windows shut OR has taken the labels off all your canned goods? Please be sure to give your thought process also. :)

I'd rather have to fix the windows then try to come up with a meal using every can in my house. After opening them to find out whats inside you'd have to use them pretty soon or they'd spoil.

oh my gosh! This is so funny, great idea I love it lol. Okay lets see.... I think I would have to say I would want them to nail all the windows shut, because you can just call some hunky handyman to come rip all the nails out and take the wood off the windows. lol I would have hated if all my canned goods didn't have labels because I would hate to have to search for something I'm craving and have a ton of the cans open that I don't want to eat, and I wouldn't want to waste all that food!

Okay, I just saw this one and couldn't wait any longer!!! This one was a hard one...but, I have made my choice!!!!!!! I would rather come home to find that a prankster has nailed all of my windows shut! Then all I would have to do it undo what the prankster has done, and then laugh at it!! But, with the canned goods...there would be no way of finding the thing that you actually want to eat. It would just be kind of like pot luck! And, that is no fun!!! :)

I know what you are talking about! I bet if someone took off all of the labels off our cans, there would be no complaining about what you got. Like my mom always says..."You get what you get and you don't throw a fit!!!" haha :D

I think I would rather find the windows nailed. We can't open most all of our windows anyway. I couldn't deal with looking for peas and getting ravioli!

I think it would be much easier to have all my windows nailed shut then having to figure out what food is in what can. I could much easier go through all the windows and take out the nails. Yes it would take a bit of work and muscle but what if I went to open a can of soup and instead found something I HATED.

I could not agree with you more! Pulling out the nails isn't as bad as looking for corn and find everything else besides that. ha ha I don't like peaches and with my luck, I would probably find the batch of peaches long before the corn. LOL

Removed the labels from my canned goods. I don't buy that many, tuna (which is in easily recognized by the shape/size of the can), tomatoes (the only large cans I buy), chef boyardee mini ravioli (the only cans I buy that don't require a can opener) and chicken broth (the only "standard" cans I buy that do require a can opener). Any other canned goods I buy are used the day I buy them (like kidney beans for chili).

Definitely taken all the labels of my canned goods, because that is far less of a problem to deal with, seeing as we don't have that much canned stuff in the cupboards, I am not the cook so it wouldn't be my problem, just my housemate and it would be quite funny, it's humid at this time of the year so having my windows nailed shut would be hell!

I would rather have a prankster nail my windows shut. I figure that I don't open my windows very often so by the time I would need to open the windows I would have all of the nails removed. I don't care much for trying to guess which can has the food that the children will eat in it. The children would waste a lot of can goods trying to find their favorite food.

I would rather have the labels off of all the canned goods! My thinking is, if I open a can and it isn't what I expect, I can toss it into a plastic container until I can get a chance to eat it, but I like to open my windows and look out and get fresh air! I would much rather have the mystery canned goods. :)

I'd rather all the labels on my canned food be gone. While I do have quite a number of canned foods, I think I'd be able to identify some things because the cans are a certain size and height. I can identify the tomato sauce from the fruit and the tuna. The only questionable items would be the vegetables, but then, I can always open them and put it in plastic containers. With nailed windows, the frames would be damaged. It'd cost more to fix the frames and window sill than it would to replace the canned foods.

Well I think I'd rather had the labels removed from the canned goods. 'Cause the other way would cost me more money. We don't have a lot of room to store a lot of canned goods and I'd wouldn't know where to begin for the repairs on my windows.

i think that i would rather have a prankster because i know how to unnail the windows. but if i had all the cans with no label if i did not know what kind of things that i had because so many cans look the same i would have to open them i think that would be a big pain. lol.

I would rather spend time removing the nails from the window than guessing what is inside a can. Who wants to open a can thinking you have green beans only to find you have beets?

Only a couple of canned goods we have always down here.They too were always peeled off by my daughter.I would rather generously let the prankster peel off the labels again.
