Today one of the paralegals at work wrapped up a Christmas present to mail to her friend. Her wrapping paper was 8.5 x 11 copier paper that she colored with a marker in green and red checkers, and she had taped it up with Scotch tape. I helpfully suggested that she should probably use mailing tape, and she agreed. Anyone, the point of this fascinating story is that, when I asked what it was, she told me it was Sea Monkeys because her friend once said she really wanted Sea Monkeys as a kid but her mom wouldn't let her have them.

I of course immediately digressed and began telling her all about the South Park episode* with sea monkeys. I'm sure it was a very professional moment in our office as I started talking about Mrs. Choksondik and semen/seamen while giggling like a little kid. Luckily the boss had the door to his office closed.

*I described the episode as "like the Simpson's episode with the little colony that develops into a civilization," etc. Turns out, the South Park episode is called "Simpsons Already Did It." Huh.
