“I tried using a colander to view the eclipse. I think I’ve strained my eyes”

A colander is a kitchen utensil that has holes to drain foods. The holes can be looked through, but a colander is not a telescope. A joke became popular on Sickipedia in March 2015:

“I tried using a colander to view the eclipse. I think I’ve strained my eyes.”


Wikipedia: Colander
A colander is a bowl-shaped kitchen utensil with holes in it used for draining food such as pasta or rice. A colander is also used to rinse vegetables.

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.
