Artichokes and doorbells

Ah, the wonders of the Internet! Here I am, with a busted doorbell at the Parental Units' home, and a bag of raw artichokes in the fridge. Knowledge, precious and useful knowledge, is but a query away.

(yawns and squints at page) Mm. Voltage from the stem to the artichoke heart should read 18 volts AC...

...Or am I supposed to steam the transformer and scrape off the secondary winding, then dip the solenoids in garlic butter?

(types "Obfuscation" into search engine and ends up on a page entitled "Medical Writing")

Whaaa...?

All right, that's it. No more Ms. Nice Guy.
