how to unstick stuck bowls

several weeks maybe months ago i reached into our dishwasher and there was this custard dish sitting inside a soup bowl
i reached down to remove the custard dish
it was stuck like it was part of the soup bowl
i ran hot water over it
still stayed stuck
i soaked it in a vinegar solution
still stayed stuck
i soaked it in warm soapy water
still stayed stuck
i soaked in in a solution of oxiclean
still stayed stuck

i reached down picked it up and opened the trash can to throw away the stuck dishes
my wife she said what are you doing i want that soup bowl dont throw it away
i put it in with the other soup bowls

when she wasnt looking i got out my hammer
my plan was to wack that custard dish to shatter it
i would throw away the shards in the trash
then what was left was an intact soup bowl

as i lifted up the hammer to wack the custard dish i thought
nothing good is going to come of this
i put it back into the cupboard
leaving it as a permanent decoration inside the cabinet

now when i read my news feeds and social media i am always on the lookout for articles on
uses for duct tape
uses for wd 40
both of these things amaze me
how well they work

then last week
there it was on facebook
uses for wd 40
i clicked on it cautiously
there was pictures and descriptions for all these uses for wd 40

as i clicked on them suddenly there it was
how to unstick stuck dishes
i read it
i got out our two stuck dishes that had been joined together for weeks maybe months
i sprayed a generous supply of wd 40 on the stuck areas
i pushed
i pulled
i shook
i twisted
i heard this almost pop
i thought i had broken the custard dish
here they are all separated now

i must say my wife she was happy to have her soup bowl back
