How, how, HOW can adults seemingly machine-produce perfectly Saran-wrapped sandwiches? Mine always turn out as a ball of static plastic with the sandwich half-inserted.
The tips are flawless, that's what I also do to saran wrap and aluminium foil.

Dude, unlike Chapel, I LOVE plastic wrap. Its fun to tear. X3 And... The... Plastic wrap... Won... 296- DON'T GIVE UP, CHAPEL!
Rainee 5/28/13
You should come help Chapel, then!

The only thing plastic wrap is good for is protecting model airplane plans from glue.
Dieseldriver 4/8/13
Good usage for it!
 Emma  4/11/13
I usually don't bother with saran wrap because I have bags and don't like sammiches ( :) )
but when I do I tell it to work and it's like "NO!!!"
Clockwork Wombat 10/12/12
I know!

i'm 50 and i never got the hang of cling wrap either.

loved your dad's stuff from the old original mac days, and now i love your stuff too! (found chapel through tom siddell's tumblr fanart - have you seen it?)
peter the grumpus 11/18/11
ah, yes, i see you have. cool to know you're a fellow GC fan (it's my very favorite!). 8-)

cheers and best of good fortune!
peter the grumpus 11/19/11
Thank you so much! I love GC a lot, same as you!

ME TOO! It's my second favorite webcomic, second to Chapel Chronicles, of course.

trick is to wrap before you tear off the sheet. no crinkly ball of plastic and it will stick. i wrap stuff for my job all the time.
I'm a big fan of sandwich bags. For everything. (Says an adult who never got the hang of plastic wrap.)
Nicole 11/11/11
Finally an adult who isn't a Plastic Wrap Wizard! And I too use sandwich bags -- they're useful in any situation!
 Emma  11/11/11
Lay sandwich on wrap one sandwich-length from end, fold wrap over sandwich to cover top side, flip/roll sandwich toward roll so that the old top side now has two layers of wrap sticking to each other. *Now* cut the wrap, then fold the loose ends in.
Old man 11/9/11
Ooh, you know your stuff! I'll have to try this out! :)
 Emma  11/9/11
Problems Miss Emma? I'll give you a clue to the saran-wrap (or two). 1# keep the cutting edge down and tight to the saran-wrap. 2# Speed.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 11/7/11
Hmm, I'll have to try that out! Everyone's been giving me such good saran wrap tips, I'll have to add these to the list!
 Emma  11/7/11
Haha, I love this one! I totally relate to this xD I always have to ask my mom. I swear, plastic wrap is such a rebel.
Alli 11/5/11
I know, right? Whenever I ask my parents for help with plastic wrap they act as if I'm the least capable person on the planet!
 Emma  11/5/11
I never have to ask my parents for help with plastic wrap because I never use it.... but they do. I don't get how they stand the stuff!!
Ginny Weasley fan 12/29/11
don't cut the plastic until the cookie is already wrapped
optional 10/5/11
Really? I had no idea that was the trick! Hmm, I'll have to try it next time...
 Emma  10/16/11
hmm yes, in our household cutting a sheet of plastic wrap is usually a two person job :P
sebastian Moya 8/6/11
ONLY a two-person job? I'm impressed!
 Emma  10/16/11
I don't understand the superhuman powers of adults. -_-
LS 8/6/11
Me neither. They must go to plastic wrap usage class or something.
 Emma  10/16/11
I'm an adult and plastic wrap still FOILS me every time!
Samisue 11/9/11
I hate plastic wrap!!!! :(
J 7/30/11
Me too! And aluminum foil is almost worse because of the awful sound it makes...
 Emma  10/16/11
OH my god I can NEVER use plastic wrap it always sticks to its self! It's so annoying!
J 7/30/11
I know! I always try to avoid using it if I can!
 Emma  10/16/11
Glad to know that there are others out there who feel this pain!
Emilie 11/4/11
Yesss. We shall form a community of Plastic Wrap Fighters.
 Emma  11/4/11
Ginny Weasley fan 11/4/11
Totally! We'll go on a plastic wrap strike.
 Emma  11/4/11
Ginny Weasley fan 11/4/11
Urgh, me too, and I'm a Real Adult(whatever that means). I suppose I missed the boat on the plastic wrap skills...
Amanda 12/19/11
So, we meet again, plastic wrap. PLASTIC WRAP. I cant even tear off a sheet without the whole thing crinkling up. PLASTIC WRAP. Once it starts balling up, it wont stick to my cookie. PLASTIC WRAP. Sighhhhh. Chapel: Zero. Plastic wrap: 296.
