“I’m very pleased with my new fridge magnet. So far I’ve got twelve fridges”

A refrigerator (or “fridge”) magnet sticks to a refrigerator, but certainly isn’t powerful enough to pull in a refrigerator. A joke was posted on Twitter on January 28, 2011:
 
“Stephen’s delighted with his new fridge magnet. So far he’s got twelve fridges.”
 
The joke went viral when it was posted on Twitter on January 4, 2012:
