my friends are brilliant

I have to bring a camera to work tomorrow to take a picture of the bag that was left on my desk this morning. Beth came to the office on Sunday to leave it there because she knows i get to work early. I haven't opened yet - I didn't want the prisoner to escape...

The following is taken from a lecture about the Nazi Soup Trials at Nuremburg:
(not really it's emails back and forth between my coworker concerning some conversations at herzograven's birthday party last Thursday.)

Incidentally you are correct. Canned soup, both celery and mushroom was invented by the Nazi’s as a torture device. While the fresh vegetables are perfectly innocent, their supposed essence was co-opted by the krauts with evil intent.

Subject: BRILLIANT LINES from last night

Okay…. I thought these two sets of comments were too funny to be forgotten.

At herzograven’s birthday last night someone asked mcamason if he was coming to our house on Saturday and he turned to freemonkeys and asked, “What time?”
Monkeys said, “Fivish”
McAmason said, “I’ll be thereish”
The room giggled and laughed.
Monkeys happily announced it was a Schrödinger’s Party – our friends may or may not be there.
More giggles.
Then I said, “Yeah, we won’t know until we open the door”
And the room broke.
There were mutters and repeatings of “thereish” and more snickers for several minutes afterwards.

Sometime later we were all talking about soup and someone looked at me and said something about celery soup. libras_art made a comment about how intense my glare was in response and magnet5 backed me up saying he didn’t like celery either – which I thought was pretty big as he’s a vegetarian. He went on to say that he substituted out for it whenever he could when cooking. Most of the room questioned doing this, as celery wasn’t that bad. I tried to explain with a comparison. “Celery is the Nazi of vegetables. Whatever dish you put it in, it annexes all the other flavors.” Monkeys said, in his defense, that he always tried to cut the mustaches off the celery when he cooked it.

The Nazi soup can was BRILLIANT. Eversince you mentioned short films shot with tin cans, I've REALLY been trying to come up with some goofy context that we can use to film it. I will have to borrow your husband's camera though, too broke to buy a camera right now. We'd either have to do silent/text or use voiceovers, because none of us have good sound equipment either, hehe.
