Shameless Plug

Ok, maybe not.  Maybe just a little Proud Daddy Post.  My daughter, Supermousey, had a history assignment.  She decided to write about the Terra Cotta Soldiers, and wrote a nice paper about them.  Then, for extra credit, she took some modeling clay and fashioned 11 different models complete with cloth capes, and weapons she borrowed from her little brother.  I am quite proud of her effort.  I’m somewhat embarrassed to admit that I had no idea what they were.  Bridgett and NM will have a field day with that.

    But Mack … if you don’t know about the soldiers then you don’t giggle at the beginning of the Japanese version of “Iron Chef”. And if you don’t giggle at the beginning of the Japanese version of “Iron Chef”, you lose several seconds getting into the right mood. And what is one’s life without a proper mood while watching the Japanese version of “Iron Chef”?

    Oh, and if those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it, I’d say that unless you read up on ancient Chinese royal burial practices right away you’re going to take a bunch of modeling clay into your coffin with you.

    Good for Supermousey, though.

  2. I LOVE Iron chef. Whats that got to do with the terra Cotta soldiers. Are they the same as Samuri? No wait, they’re japanese. I’m confused….

    You never noticed the roomful of all the white-hatted chefs, standing very stiffly, with their weapons cooking utensils held at their sides, in the introduction to the original “Iron Chef”? They have always reminded me of the soldiers.
