An interesting question — and answer

Hi, everyone!

I may have discovered that I accidentally became a croissant snob, but cannot confirm it.

Ramble of the Day

Who doesn’t love it when a fan question and answer session gets interesting?

There’s a lot of credit to be handed out here. First, to the person who asked the question. I imagine it was partly a joke, but now credit must be extended to the person or people responsible for allowing that question to be answered. Finally, credit goes to Florian Lejeune, who really took the question seriously, rewarding the efforts of multiple people in the process.

Feel free to discuss how strange it all is, In the meantime, I will just comment on how thorough Lejeune is; maybe he got the idea from somewhere else (he basically says that’s the case), but he clearly thought it out. Again, this is odd and maybe slightly disturbing, but thoroughly planning something secret is an important skill — it’s useful in planning surprises so that the news is revealed in exactly the right way, for example.

Now that I’m thinking about it again, though, this is probably not information you want to put into the world, but I suppose we shouldn’t take it seriously.

tl;dr: Newcastle’s Florian Lejeune has a plan on how to hide a body.
