Oh my god, it's an emergency! Somebody call the authorities, we have a horrible emergency on our hands! What is it, you ask? Why, we're out of ice cubes! Oh, why do bad things happen to good people? Oh, cruel fate!
Thank the heavens! It's an Emergency Ice Cube Machine! This amazing wonder of technology can make up to 12 whole ice cubs in a mere 10 minutes! Yes, I said 12! It's the perfect amount for three or four drinks, which would certainly do a lot to lessen the severity of this emergency. I just wish it cost less than $280. If only ice wasn't so darned expensive to make. Damn you, capitalism, you cold-hearted master!
