(Can't bring myself to follow that link.)

Put it in the refrigerator?

Is your refrigerator running?
Yes.
Hadn't you better go after it?

That would have been really funny, except for the phone call I got one day. Seems a co-worker, who was a reserve deputy sheriff in another county called me one morning, explaining that he'd work with the SO on the night before, and when he got home that morning, he'd disassembled his Glock 17, to clean it, since it had been out in the rain a good bit that night. Right after he broke it down, with all the parts scattered across the coffee table, he got a phone call from a buddy. (This was back in the days before cell phones.) Left the parts while he went to talk to his buddy.

Upon returning, some 20-or-so minutes later, he discovered that his 120 lbs Akita "puppy" had glommed onto the frame, and chewed the living sh*t out of it, to the point that the slide would no longer go onto the frame. So he was in a panic, worrying that the Sheriff would fire him, or kick his ass, or both. Finally got him calmed down, contacted Glock C/S, and had a new frame under his old slide in about two weeks.

But I've never had a dog chew a 1911 up so bad that I couldn't get it back together.

Okay, they are funny but they're also likely to get someone killed who believe that shit.
