Misbehaving Laundry

Why is it that sometimes my laundry misbehaves so badly?

The other night, when I went downstairs to retrieve my clothes from the washing machine, I found that the ENTIRE load had woven itself into one giant thread!

The resulting "creature" had a flexible, cloth "backbone" which literally took me 15 precious minutes to untangle.

My mind was boggled by the complexity of the knots.  Not even a sailor could untangle these quickly!

Michael counted his blessings for choosing to walk the dog and pack the lunches that evening instead of do the laundry and the dishes like I did.  He completed his tasks much more quickly than I ever could!
