Wow, last night I dreamt I was floating high in the sky and eating a cloud.

This morning when I woke up my mattress was missing.

I need help with my 5 level sleeper project.

I cannot fit a mattress at the top.

Somebody suggested to shorten the legs at the bottom but that would not help because the problem is at the top.

IKEA launched its new range of archtecturally inspired furniture yesterday. New sleeping solutions include The Stately Home, The Cottage, The High Rise (pictured above), The Beach House, The Terrace and The Ranch.

All of the models are made to IKEA's high structural standards, and need only an Allen key to assemble. Mattresses not included.

The new range can be viewed at all major stores.

This bed solves two problems at once!

By making him sleep on the top bunk, we hope peer pressure will encourage Danny to stop wetting the bed.

If Bobby, the second from the top, doesn't start getting better grades Danny at the top never gets a mattress to absorb any "excess" moisture.

At night the kids use it for a five level bunk bed and during the day we use it as scaffolding to remodel and paint the house.

Worse than a bed wetter, imagine one of the upper bunk guys has a little to much to drink and gets sick in the middle of the night.

Moe: Shud up and go to sleep....SMACK.

Larry: Hey Moe leave him alone.

Moe: Oh you want some of this too...SMACK...JAB

Curly: Oh a wise guy huh?
