“Ahhh...I remember my first ever cupboard...”
Central Universal Professional Bearer Of All Resident Dress, or CUPBOARD, is the name given to the facility used in one's residence to store their items of wear, and anything else they may want to store. In some American states CUPBOARDS are referred to as CLOSETS - Closed Little Opening Saving Everyone's Things and Stuff, however these states are under investigation.
Cupboards should not be confused with fridges.
Cupboards in the Media
The CIA (Cupboard Intelligence Agency) has long been perplexed over the cupboards capacity to accommodate well over an infinite number of items inside it's barriers, making it the most practical use of space in the world.
There is only one thing that can't be stored in a cupboard - another cupboard. To try and fit one cupboard into another would create a vortex that would rip through the fabric of both time and space. Please wear safety goggles if attempting this. The contents of both cupboards would be lost to eternity; scientists believe they would be deposited in some kind of deposit.
It is a common wives tale that cupboards are constructed by piecing together pieces of flattened wood. However this is only partly true. They are made from wood, yes, but not flattened, because wood cannot be weighed, shaped or formed, in any way, shape or form, without harnessing the forces of space and time and marijuana.
Instead, cupboards are harvested from cupboard trees (cupboardus cupboardus), found on the outskirts of London, Kuala Lumpa, Umpa Lumpa, Hong Kong, Moscow, and Frinton-on-Sea. In their natural habitat they look like normal cupboards, but have trees going out from the top of them. This is undesirable to most, so the trees are swiftly cut off before people lay eyes on them and die, taking care not to damage the cupboard beneath. The waste trees are thrown over the mexican border, and the precious cupboards are safely transported to the factories to be distributed freshly - to you and me!
Off the shelf, cupboards cost around 20-30p, accounting for cupboardial variation between businesses, as getting them down risks the customer's life. Situated safely on the floor a good cupboard will sell for anything between $100 and $100,000,000 for benchline and top of the range cupboards respectively.
Cupboards In History
In the bible, Noah's Ark was a form of cupboard. Several cupboard tree fruits were fused together for it's special construction.
Shakespeare grew up in a cupboard and wrote the majority of his earlier plays on the inside of it with his tongue, before realising the quality of his work. He then shredded the cupboard into a million sheets of paper using his toenails, which he used to write some of his best work on.
George Bush was conceived and born in a cupboard. To this day he uses cupboards to escape his busy office for times of relaxation, or to conduct his most secret meetings in.
In neanderthalic times cupboards were used as, literally, cup boards. Cavewomen would de-robe, lay their bras on the board, and wait until a male, on inspecting the current spread of bras on the board, liked the look of her bra. He would pick it up, wave it in the air, and shout for the owner of the bra. She would then come forward to meet her lifetime partner. This method is still used today.
Through the processes of evolution, cupboards started out life as caves. They evolved into nooks, crannies, holes, tunnels, sheds, Jade Goody's mouth, and finally cupboards. On the 7th of October 2011 cupboards are expected to evolve into another superior form .
