Anyone here a Zen Tupperware rep? I mean, what's the sales spiel? The cool place not to keep your food? The food container that's not a food container? I have to know! Anyone interested in a MeFi Tupperware party?

I poked around and found (under Tupperware party ideas):

Shower tea

Obviously, my first reaction was "The buns would go soggy", but then I read the description and got up to speed.

There's no need to go shopping for a gift - guests can just pop somemoney in an envelope and the bride-to-be can select the Tupperware products of her choice at the end of the party.

Mmm. She'll love that. Tupperware products. Every girl's dream.

Then I thought, why not? Why not have a real party with vast quantities of Drugs and Booze and unmentionable activities in darkened rooms. And try to sell Tupperware at it. I mean people will buy anything when they're stoned. Put brightly coloured objects in them. That'll work.

Zen Tupperware koan:

What is the sound of one lid burping

If a lid burps and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?

OK, so I'm caught out looking for a gag for my own post, but I found this Zen Koan Generator.

I know, its 5 years old, but there have been no links to it from here yet. Of course, that might be because it ain't that good.....

The site lists for "modern entertaining". Does this mean the post modern entertaining set has three sided (formerly square) bowls?

Or would these be the perfect gift for storing mantras so they don't get stale.

No, the postmodern entertaining set prefers one sided bottles.
