Try a bite.

June 13th, 2007 · 23 comments

A booby-trapped soup — sans note — probably would have been the more effective (and more passive-aggressive) approach, but, um, to each his own?

STOP eating my soup! I know who you are. I'm watching you. I mixed a little OxyPowder in my soup today. Care to find out what that is?? Try a bite.

If you’re wondering what OxyPowder is, allow Kenneth to explain.

    I would have mixed in the Oxy-Powder without a note. A few hours on the throne would have them re-thinking their soup-theft habits!

    How do you take a bite of soup?

    A slurrp, a swig or possibly a gulp. But a bite?

    So he/she mixed oxy powder in the soup to thwart the thief… but doesn’t that mean it will be inedible for the owner as well?? Unless colon-cleansing was already on the day’s agenda…

    well he spoiled all the fun by telling the culprit he mixed the powder in. he should have kept his mouth shut and watch them start foaming at the mouth. *sigh* some people…
    not only that but now he has to go hungry too. what an idiot! he doesn’t deserve that soup.

    Well, if he hadn’t written what he did it probably wouldn’t have ended up here, and we all wouldn’t be sitting here laughing about it.

    yeah, i like the note. and tomorrow, when there is no note and soup, the culprit will wonder if the new soup is spiked as well.

    however, the soup owner is still without his soup. maybe he is like westley in the princess bride and has worked up an immunity to the powder.

    People who steal food from office fridges should be strung up by their genitals and beaten with rabid monkeys.

    Have any of you considered that maybe the note is a bluff?

    Falls under the “if I can’t have it, nobody can” category, I guess.

    [...] an example, he describes booby-trapping a pint of ice cream with a layer of salt (without leaving a note of warning for the roommates.) the culprit’s response is the best [...]

    I’d hate to put up a note like that since it reminds me of a joke I heard once: A farmer was upset about someone stealing from his watermelon patch at night. So he put up a sign that said “One of these watermelons has been poisened”. When he came back the next day, someone had crossed out “One” and wrote in “Two”.

    I’m with mothman. Put the note on the soup, don’t put the powder in the soup, eat the soup yourself, like you would have intended… And don’t worry about anyone else eating it, because they think it’s got something in it.

    If i saw that note i’d probably think it’s a bluff, then take the soup, throw it away, make new soup, really put oxypowder in then replace in original container. :)

    Why steal the soup when there’s applesauce and tons of Coffee-Mate?

    I ate an old co-workers spicey chicken sandwich, but out of pure spite. I wasn’t too hungry. I actually shared it with another co-worker. Something about a stolen lunch tastes so damn good.
