Where Exactly is the Great Wall of China?
Please don’t tell me it’s in China, silly.
So today, after a meeting on the other side of the building, I was walking along and I happened to stop off by the cafeteria (they don’t serve food where I work but they have a cafeteria, go figure) when I happened to notice one of the jigsaw puzzles near the windows. (We actually do jigsaw puzzles and play ping-pong in the cafeteria.) One of my co-workers pointed out that, in fact, the puzzle was called “The Great Wall of China” and it featured lots of tea cups, saucers, and the link (yes, we get the pun.) But the back of the box claimed that the “real” Great Wall of China was hidden somehow, somewhere in “The Great Wall of China” (teacups and the like). So, naturally, I started looking for the wall.
After a long and futile search, I gave up. “There is no wall,” proclaimed one of my co-workers. “Screw the wall,” said another. But I decided to google it and , low and behold, here’s what the great Gods of Google have to say about the wall…From www.ijigsawpuzzles.com :
Where is the Great Wall of China hidden in the Great Wall of China Impossibles/Bepuzzled 750+5 pieces jigsaw puzzle?
It is in the upper right hand corner, in a section of lace surrounded by a tea cup, a large pear pattern plate, a small black plate, and a large multi-colored plate.
So now you know. And now I can safely go back to work, resplendent in the comfort of knowing that The Great Wall of China is hidden in some lace and teacups. Hey, at least it’s safe. I mean, nobody can even find the dang thing, let alone knock it over.
Have you noticed how many people have been signing weblogs, on-line journals, and the like with the slogan, “just saying?” I’m, yes, you guessed it, “just saying.”
Until next time, this is Carol, the Carol in “Carol’s Little World” signing off.
