Charming! I love the soundtrack. I was disappointed in the flying shoes, however. Not quite what I expected, or hoped for. They will have to do without my behoof.

Silly people. Don't you see that of course wooden shoes will be warm. They are designed from those slow burning logs, and once home from a long day at the office, you snuggle down in the wooden shoes, put a match to them, and they last at least three hours. <P>DO NOT fall asleep in them. They MUST be removed before the final layer of wood burns away. (Have you never heard of the Ritual Fire Dance?)<P>Now, I will go out on the street and behoof the first three passersby that I encounter. Their high praise for this product will certainly overcome the pain from the nails to hold them on.<P>

Damn! They've changed behoof to benefit. Do you think that if we e-mailed them and said that very few Western people would understand 'benefit', but <B>everyone</B> will understand 'behoof' that they might change back?

This one may take some thought. And that is ONE thing I NEVER do during work.
