Stories of the Order - The Fridge

The Sovereign Order of Monte Cristo are all powerful and work to create great and mighty inventions around the clock. But let’s go back in time to where times were so much simpler, back in the olden days. We’re talking about times where fridges weren’t even around better yet, invented. Refrigerators were invented in 1834 and fridges came about in 1850 by a “Freezer Jolly Good Fellow” named John Gorrie.

If he was here with us now he’d say, “Back in my day we had to bury our food in window or storage boxes and we even had the option of ice houses but this generation has it all now.” Do you actually believe that John Gorrie actually invented this product on his own? Yeah? Well, maybe that’s what they want you to think.  John Gorrie did not invent the fridge by himself.

He had to have the intelligent and creative help of the Order. The Order did most of the work in developing this life changing invention. It did take a while, though. The reason why was because before the refrigerator or the fridge was invented, the members of the Order were nocturnal creatures that only came out at night.

The sunlight just fried their brains and since the smarter ones did some of their best thinking at night they would all take their lamps and put them together and gather all of their tools and work endlessly through the night just for a piece of equipment that would keep their food and beverages cold during the daytime so they could thoroughly hydrate themselves, and keep them cool. The members of the Order today are ancestors that are making a profit and inheriting their family’s money every time you buy a new refrigerator with a built in fridge. That’s something to think about.

  4. The ice box was rather neat, too. In place of a white elephant it was a masterful piece of oak wook with fascinating decorative hardware. I liked the esthetics of the ice box better than the fridge. The only downfall was the pan that you had to empty. We'd be sitting in church and my mother would remember the pan didn't get emptied so my brother would have to run back home right then and there, to empty it. Ha

  6. Cheers to the Order for enabling my bad eating habits. How else could I eat mindlessly at midnight if it weren't for picking through refrigerated leftovers?
