There was an old man who lived alone. His only companions were the rice cooker and the television.
The old man would spend his days watching television and eating rice that he cooked in his rice cooker.
One day, the old man’s rice cooker broke and he could not afford to buy a new one. The old man was devastated.
He had lost his only source of food and companionship. The old man slowly starved to death. His body was found next to the broken rice cooker.
