Tuesday afternoon milk carton blogging - 12:46
Today rather than a passive display of information pertaining to milk cartons
or some photo of a milk carton I thought it best to sit down with one of these
revered calcium rich liquid containers and ask a few questions of it in order
to further understand the life and times of your average milk carton. Thus I
present you with.
Interview with a Vampi^WMilk Carton
sjh: So why is it that Buffy so regularly kick's your arse?
MC: Who/What is this Buffy of which you speak?
sjh: Oops, yeah I was still lost with the whole interview title mixup in my
head, there must have been a
carton involved somewhere
sjh: So you are a milk carton, when people wander up to you in the street, how
do you prove to them that you are in fact a milk carton? Or do we need to take
it as an article of faith that you are a milk carton?
MC: Well in my case there is a fair amount of
that could be applied to back up any claims I make in relation to actually
being a milk carton. My mostly rectangular cartonesque shape, labels
pertaining to my milky contents, I would hope there is no need to extract milk
from within and test that, however that is also an option. I hope not too many
would feel the need to
tickle, prick or
poison me to learn how identical I am to other milk cartons.
sjh: So you are fairly sure anyone wishing to apply scientific methodology
will believe claims that you are a milk carton, however what do you claim to
those who wish to ignore such methods?
MC: If a bunch of skeptics wished to ignore scientific methodology and were
really not interested in
more I could get away with murder, I can go around claiming to be a
of buffalo or a
carrot cake and
there would be no sensible way to refute my claims, it may even be fun.
sjh: There is a continuing theme in the collective conscious of many people
about the missing person's ads that have appeared on milk cartons in the past.
Conspiracy theorists may suggest milk cartons even had something to do with
the disappearance of these people, what do you think of all of this?
MC: Sure there are many
what may have happened to all those people on the milk cartons, you should of
course be careful of what to
believe lest people think you a little strange.
sjh: You really don't seem to be answering the questions posed to you, is
there any reason you are simply touching on the topic and then trying to
distract me with possibly related information?
MC: No Comment
sjh: Thank you for your time, I hope you have no problems returning to your
milk cartony ways after this brush with blogdom.
MC: No comment.
