24. uh.. dont ever say that please!

Co-worker was born and raised in Armenia, had only lived in the United States for about two years. She mostly mastered the English language really quickly, except...

One day when she was leaving work, she pokes her head into the break room and says to us, "Okay guys, I'm leaving! Rest in peace!"

"Uh, I think you mean 'Peace out.'"

"What's the difference?"

"'Rest in peace' is what you say to show respect for a dead person."

"THAT'S what Rest in Peace means? Why didn't anyone tell me that? I've been saying it to customers for months!

23. Ill just be your mommy until we find your real mommy

A while ago I was in the mall on a crowded day when suddenly I felt a tiny hand clasp my palm. A little girl, maybe 5, had mistaken me for her mom and held my hand and started wrapping herself around my leg. It was so sweet and I knew it would frighten her when I pointed out her mistake- but when I did her confused expression was priceless. She continued to hold my hand while we walked around looking for her mom. It was extra cute because I remember doing that myself as a kid.

22. When kids ask for the most bizarre things

Six year old: Daddy, can you buy me a German?

Me: A German? That's a person from Germany. You can't buy people.

Six year old: But I want to write on it and make pictures like my friends.

Me: I'm not sure they would like that.

It took a couple of more questions for me to realise he actually wanted a journal, not a German.

21. What a champ!

Was at my local Target where a little girl (maybe like 4?) was with her parents. She was twirling around in circles and completely face-planted into the ground. Like face down butt up face-plant. I was expecting full blown tears and screaming to enrage from this child but instead she happily sang "I'm okay!" and got up and twirled again.

Thought it was the cutest thing in the world.

20. Why are you all laughing?!

At a big box store trying to keep my kids occupied while my wife checked out. Told my three year old it was time to leave and she went tearing after a woman who was dressed the same as my wife. Opened her arms and hugged the lady from behind with her face planted into the lady's rear end. I was laughing the lady was laughing, the 3 year old was scared and confused.

19. The correct pronunciation

The hostesses at the restaurant I work at are all about high school age and I love them dearly. Anyways, one day our manager gives one of them the wine special for the day to write on the chalkboard by the entrance. This girl didn't know much about wines, and had trouble reading the manager's handwriting, so instead of writing "Pinot Grigio" on the board, she wrote, "Pinut Grigle". Now it's really hard for me to talk about Pinot Grigio without calling it Pinut Grigle just cause it tickles me.

18. Confused little girl

Was in a waiting room in a hospital and a little girl asked her father what was on his name tag. The father told her it was his name, and the little girl said "I thought daddy was your name.

17. This game is clearly broken

When I was younger I had one of those brain trainer games for my DS. One of the mini games would show you a colour written in a different colour if that makes sense (like the word purple written in yellow text) and you had to say the colour of the text into the microphone as quickly as you could, I guess to test your brain power or whatever. My little brother, about 7 at the time, was very good at this game for someone his age, but hadn't quite gotten the hang of pronouncing his 'r's yet. My parents and I would sit there in silent stitches listening to him angrily yell 'WED' into the DS fifteen times over, while it failed to recognise what he was saying. It was so cute.

16. And the winner is

Playing the drinking game Kings, a ten was pulled for 'categories'. For those unfamiliar, it's a card-based drinking game using a standard deck where each card represents a different game that is played, usually ending with drinks. Categories means that someone names a category of "things" and everyone has to go around naming something from that category. If you fail to name something, you drink.

So I chose the category "80's Hair Bands," expecting answers like White Snake or Tesla. This young girl was the first person to go, and she confidently yells "A scrunchie!"

She technically wasn't wrong.

15. Thats just awkward.

The cutest I've seen was when we were visiting a manor house open to the public for tours in the UK that had peacocks strutting around the grounds.

One boy asked the tour guide what those strange creatures were. She said, it's a "peacock." He said, "I pee with mine, too."

The look on everyone's faces was priceless - especially our young tour guide as she tried to conceal her amusement.

14. Ooh look, something she has never tasted! yummy!

We had a new girl in my office. She was very bubbly, so she fit right in when everyone was joshing around. One day, we all got sushi and she said, "I love wasabi!"

Then, eats a giant glob of wasabi, and runs out of the room with tears coming from her eyes and sweat pouring out of her face.

It was really cute. We gave her a hard time about it.

13. Best. Name. Ever.

I've got a friend named Preeti. One time Preeti and I were volunteering at an elementary school as part of our high school community service organization, and we were introduced to the kids (around 6-7 y/o) as "Ms. [my name] and "Ms. Preeti". When one of the kids asked Preeti to go to the bathroom, the kid said "Ms. Beautiful" and it was all I could do to not say "awwe" right in front of the kid.

12. Im going to say that from now on

A few months ago my 6 year old little girl was eating dinner. She let out a burp and said "fart on me." I waited a minute and asked what she said. She explained "I said fart on me. It's what you say when being polite." Me and my wife smiled and told her it's actually pardon me.

11. Guilty is written all over him

My friend's dad is Italian. They moved to Germany in the 60s and have lived here ever since.

A few years ago, he was caught speeding (not very much over the limit) by a stationary speeding camera. He noticed the flash go off and asked his daughter what would happen now.

She told him not to worry and that he'd get his ticket in the mail. But he was so worried about having broken the traffic laws that he went to the police station the day after and told them "I did it."

He was obviously asked to explain what he did and after telling them that he was the one who went above the speed limit yesterday, I guess the cops had a bit of a chuckle, thanked him and told him, he'd get mail.

10. Perfect choice of clothes for a fancy event

My significant other is a fluent but non-native English speaker. One night, he was talking about a particular event and how "everyone would wear tuxedos and night gowns."

Took me a second to realize that he meant evening gowns, but I thought it was adorable. Yet another genuinely weird moment in the English language.

9. At least she tried!

My wife is absolutely horrible telling left from right. It's at the point where if I ask her which way to turn at an intersection I do the opposite of what she says. It's the correct way about 90% of the time.

A few months that ago when we were going to pick up our marriage certificate I was asking for directions because she grew up in the area. She had already gotten it wrong twice on the way so she paused, thought about it for a moment, and the said "riiiiiiight". While pointing to the left.

And then she wouldn't make eye contact with me and started turning a bright shade of pink while I cracked up for the rest of the ride and until we actually made it to the registrar.

8. Ouch, kid. That has got to hurt!

I took my niece (7 years old) to a restaurant yesterday and we sat at a high top with my friend. My niece and I were getting up to wash our hands and she fell off of her chair. I picked her up and walked to the bathroom. She was crying and I asked her if she hurt anything and she said "no Kaitlyn. Just my pride.

7. So worth it!

Met this guy on Tinder, probably our 4/5th time hanging out since our first date. End up stopping somewhere and I meet some of his family. Get back into his car on our way to original destination. He gets a text message from his mom and accidentally lets the car read it out loud. Word for word "She is the most beautiful girlfriend you've ever had!". Dead silence because neither of us are the type to make the first move so we never discussed much how we felt for each other. Afterwards he was so awkward and tried hinting at asking if I'd like to be his girlfriend. Needless to say he ended up asking me out and 3 months later he's still the most amazing man I've ever met.

6. When a prank turns into an act of kindness

When my brother was in college, the neighboring sorority went into his campus house and labeled just about everything with sticky notes. I'm not really sure what exactly the joke was, but I guess that was their idea of a wholesome prank.

My brother's housemate was a super-sweet exchange student from China. He thanked them for the nice surprise, because he thought they were trying to help him with his English.

5. You're too good for me!

My husband had surgery and was having a really rough time coming out of anesthesia. Didn't know where he was or why. From the things he was saying, he was about ten years in the past (before we met). Husband: Who are you? Me: I'm your wife. H: I'm married!! Me: yep H: No, you are much too pretty to be my wife.

It was pretty heartbreaking in the moment, but funny in retrospect. It took 3-4 hours, but eventually he remembered me and the rest of his life again.

4. Lets just stick with his definition

My (then) seven-year-old nephew and I were watching a TV show, and one of the characters called another girl a "Butter Face" to insult her.

My nephew looked at me with confusion, said "Butter Face?", and looked back at the TV. I was about to explain to him what that insult meant, but then a look of comprehension crossed his face.

"Oh, 'cuz she's got blonde hair, so her bangs look like a hunk of butter on her forehead. I get it!"

I thought his definition was hilarious, so I didn't bother correcting him.

3. Potatoes are the new natural disaster

My four-year-old step-kid was going on and on and on for like two straight breathless minutes about how her school handled a bit of bad weather, but it took us a while to understand that because we couldn't figure out why she kept saying "we had to hide from the potatoes (tornadoes)!

2. When kids get angry but then re-evaluate their life choices

Little girl in the grocery store was having an argument with her parents. She looked like she was maybe four or five. My husband and I round the corner and this girl looks at us, then her parents, then us, and comes running down the aisle. "I'm going to go live with THEM and THEY will be my new mommy and daddy because YOU'RE MEAN!" My husband ADORES kids, and I am very obviously pregnant-we smiled at her parents and they said, "Oh. Well, Mr. and Mrs. New Dad and Mom-good luck with her," before turning their cart and walking away.

The girl gets this brief panicked expression and I shouted, "Hey-wait!" Parents turned around, "Does she have allergies or anything?" "Nope, she's healthy as a horse. She does need a nightlight though." "Oh, that's too bad-we don't have nightlights."

This girl let go of my husband's shirt tail and hauled back to her parents so fast she looked like a cartoon character running. "I don't really need that toy. I love you." You could tell she really reevaluated her choices up to that point, and it was adorable.

1. All aboard the FEELS train

My boyfriend had a brain injury four months ago. He was in a coma for about a week and when he woke he had to relearn how to speak coherently all over again. The speech therapist had a session with me present so that I could practice these lessons with him at home. He (the therapist) would say a word and my boyfriend would have to give him a synonym or definition. The therapist said happiness and my boyfriend actually pointed to me and said my name. I did a weird mixture of crying/laughing and the therapist told him 'no, that's incorrect' and my boyfriend pouted and frowned and didn't quite understand his mistake. It's a memory I think of a lot when we're going through a particularly rough patch.

Have you ever found yourself in an argument so stupid and/or pointless that you were sure you were being punked? Like you keep looking away from the other person to check your surroundings for places Ashton Kutcher and a camera crew could come popping out of?

You're not the only one.

u/Anti-hollowkid asked: What is the dumbest argument you've ever been in?

Brace yourselves, folks. Some of these arguments are breathtakingly bonkers. The sheer number of people who are willing to argue with someone over provable facts and what that other person likes or doesn't like is just ... stunning. It's stunning, you guys. Just not in a good way.

I Know What I Like

My wife and I once argued over whether or not I liked mustard on my hot dog. I was for me liking mustard, she was against me liking mustard.

The argument lasted way longer that you could ever imagine it would.

A Stair Step

My brother and I argued if our staircase had 13 or 14 steps, based on an argument about if the floor of the second floor counts as a stair-step or not. We still have no solution.

My dad is a stairbuilder and I spent many summers working at his warehouse, so I can clear this up. 14.

Saturdays

My husband and I have this thing where we only say "I love you" on Saturdays. Every other day it's "I love you, but only on Saturdays." I don't know how it started, but it's been going for 11 years now.

We're both shiftworkers, so sometimes we have to stop and think what day it actually is. We had an argument recently over whether it was Saturday or not. I said it was Saturday, he said it was Friday. It was Monday.

Iraq

I remember when I was about 13 my parents had an hour-long shouting match that ended with them almost getting divorced. The issue? Whether or not the nation of Iraq has a coastline.

My mother arguing that Iraq had a coastline, while my stepdad argued that it did not. This was back in 2004, and they are still quite happily married to this day. That incident is something they look back on and laugh about, and both of them admit it was really a pretty stupid thing to argue over.

$40

With an ex:

"I owe you $80 for the bills of ours that you pay, and you owe me $40 for the bills of ours that I paid. Here's $40 in cash; we're even."

She did not understand this.

I literally had to go get another $40 out of the ATM, and hand the $80 to her. Then I had her hand me the $40 she owed me.

"Now how much do you have in your hand?"

She still didn't understand.

She somehow has a college degree.

Mini Wheats

When we were kids my brother and I got in a physical fight because he said I like mini wheats and I insisted I didn't. His argument was that I always sang the mini wheats song and I was deeply offended that he wasn't aware that it was just stuck in my head but I hated the cereal. I actually did like the cereal I'm not sure why I was arguing with him about it but I remember how genuinely angry I was.

Crayons

Giphy

I'll tell you about the only legal trouble I've ever been in, the fight that got me arrested. It started over whether we should return a box of crayons or not, and to this day I don't have any idea how it escalated to the point of the cops being called, but they were and I was the one taken in.

That's Unfair

My boyfriend insisted that when two people are in an argument and one makes a point so reasonable and logical the other one can't disagree with it - it's unfair. I tried, logically and reasonably, to explain several times why that is just winning the argument, proving your point thoroughly and is completely fair.

His answer was that I was being unfair.

Pure Masochism

How the ch in masochism is pronounced. My friend caught me saying "masoKism" while he would say "masoSYism."

To be fair, he grew up speaking French, in which the ch in masochism is pronounced in "his" way. But he insisted that I was the wrong one here and that was just infuriating.

A Non-Standard Ruler? 

I worked for a company that made signs. We had a customer ask for signs that were 7mm wide that were to go on a door. Our sign makers figured the order meant inches because 7mm is pretty small, so made them 7 inches. I got a phone call from the customer who went mad at me for making them the wrong size. So I put a reorder through for 7 mm.

Argued with the sign makers over it but they eventually agreed to do it after I shown them the order in writing. I even had the customer put her complaint in writing, reiterating the size they wanted.

7mm signs went out and a day later I get the customer on the phone literally screaming at me.

Cue the dumb argument - we ended up having an argument over how big a millimetre is, and obviously everyone in the office were laughing, but this customer just wouldn't accept it and said we must be using a non-standard ruler to measure.

Ended up being escalating to the sales department manager who refused to issue a refund. We still don't know what they actually meant.

This Unusual Vegan Argument

Was in a pub with a few friends, and some random Dude dropped an ear, and somehow figured I'm vegan. Well, people like him are the reason I usually avoid mentioning it. He came up to me and insisted on starting a discussion about veganism. He claimed that by the end of it, I would be eating meat again.

He listed some stupid arguments, I told him I was not convinced and then tried to keep on drinking beer with my friends. He followed me, and wanted me to "try to convert him to a vegan." I stupidly listed some of my reasons thinking it would make him go away. He told me he still was not convinced, so I was like whatever. Again, I really just wanted to drink beer with my friends.

That dude followed me all night and expected me to try make him vegan. Doesn't matter what I said, and all the reasons that for me are obviously good enough to be vegan. He'd be just like "No, that doesn't convince me, therefore your argument and how you life is stupid."

Didn't matter how often I told him that I honestly don't care; 5 minutes later he would come up to me again "I'm still not vegan, so veganism is stupid, all your arguments were stupid, now give me a good reason to become vegan!" At one point, I was literally yelling at him that I don't give a single flying f about what he eats and why, that it's in no way my responsibility to "turn somebody vegan" and in no way his business what I eat.

Honestly, for that dude, I would have bought a whole ham, just to shove it up his stupid annoying face.

Monty Python

In college my roommate and I argued about a line in Monty Python & the Holy Grail. The scene with the Black Knight where the line "Alright, we'll call it a draw" is uttered. We argued about who said that line, whether it was King Arthur or the Black Knight.

It went on for hours longer than it should have because I was stubborn and refused to admit I was wrong.

Below Sea Level

I live on an island and when you go upland and you look out the sea looks like it's higher than or on the same level as the land. It's just a weird perspective thing because of the horizon. One day some kid says that it's because the island is under sea level.


I'm like wtf bro all of us would be with the fishes. He argues that no that's not true and if I just go upland I'll see. We then spend a good 5 minutes of my time arguing about it until I decided to leave this kid in his stupidity. He even said we shouldn't believe everything adults tell us and sometimes we need to think for ourselves.

This kid was older than me and was going to a good school. Lost my respect for him ever since then.

Tomash

Someone tried to fight with me over how to spell my name.

Now, my name is in a lot of languages with slightly different spellings. I would have accepted any of those spellings, but this one was just... Not even close. It didn't make any logical sense.


An analogous example is if my name was Thomas and someone was insisting it was spelled Tomash. And not just the name Thomas in general, but that me specifically, on my birth certificate, was named Tomash. I know how to spell my own name.

I swear to god, it went on for like an hour.

Whales Are Mammals

No Balloons For Grandma

My cousin and I argued over a balloon going to Heaven. We were at his big sisters prom send off and he let a balloon go and it went high into the sky.

He then said this balloon will go up past space and go to Heaven and reach grandma (God rest her soul). And I was like no it's not and it's probably not even gonna reach space. Releasing balloons is terrible for the environment and kills/harms so much wildlife.

He got really mad and defensive and started telling me to google it and do my research and I'm like I don't have to google it you idiot. He was mad at me for a good week.

Spontaneous Dolphin Existence

Giphy

How dolphins reproduced. It took me a few solid minutes of explaining to her that dolphins have reproductive organs and that they did not just pop into existence. The argument began with her saying she wanted to work with sea creatures.

Personally, I hope she was messing with me cause I lost a little faith in humanity that day.

I repeatedly had the argument with a friend over whether roosters were chickens. She was convinced that only the females were chickens (hens). We were 18 at the time.

It is the base of our most common and heated arguments.

Andre 2000?

Giphy

I'm late, but I saw this question and instantly remembered that I was booted from a Facebook group because I called someone out on a lie that was not only bull, but extremely pointless. She was friends with the moderator and they made the case that my argument over such a little lie was more of a problem than the lie itself (though they didn't refer to it as a lie.)


The woman said that she used to babysit for Andre 3000 and that his name was Andre 2000 - but he changed it after the year 2000 had passed. This was so easily disproven it was ridiculous. Their debut album came out in 1994 and he was already going by Andre 3000 at that time.

The argument wasn't a huge long drawn out thing, but the fact that either of us were on Facebook at separate times meant that the responses were over a long period of time so this argument lasted a few days.

It was stupid.

Stars Like Our Sun

I was arguing with my grandpa about stars he didn't believe that there are other stars like our sun. Basically he thought there is only the sun, the moon and the earth.

Richard Nixon

I have a degree in history. I mostly focused on nationalism. Wrote a 50 page paper on it and Richard Nixon with around 50 100 sources. Looked at micro film for hours on end. Part of the paper focused on how Nixon being chair of the house committee of Unamerican Activities was used as a powerful weapon to use against political enemies. It also inspired Joe McCarthy. Have had people tell me I was wrong and Nixon was never elected to a position besides the president and Joe McCarthy came before Nixon. I stopped trying to talk history to people.


I also know quite a bit about the history of the Balkans its amazing how many Serbs refuse to believe Tito did anything wrong.

Wrote 100 page paper on nationalism in Israel. Its frustrating to talk about because for some reason a lot of people think Palestinian firing rockets randomly into Israel is ok but if Israel retaliates the people get up in arms over a targeted air strike that kills 3 people.

Binder Clips

I got into an argument with a co-worker over how we were attaching two pages of a letter together: small binder clips or paper clips.

He felt that paper clips would leave a "dent" in the paper when removed, but binder clips won't. He refused to staple them together. I felt that binder clips would also leave a "dent", so we might as well just use the paper clips.

It ended with him saying: "Do what you want [me], I don't care!" and storming off.

Jewish

Once got accused of faking being Jewish. Why? I have no clue. We argued over the course of a month, any time I'd bring it up and she heard about it, she'd begin going after me for "faking it".

My mother's side is ethnically Jewish. Grandparents were practicing.

Nutella

3 friends and I once got into an argument about how to pronounce Nutella. It lasted for about 3-4 months. It was hilarious how serious we took it, it'd get heated but never for real serious.

I think someone even called the company that made it to check, or that may have been for the Cheetos company. We were really bored in high school.

Lingerie Boxes

Late to the party, but there it is.

I'm a manager at a small store. We're only 4 working there, so my team and I grew very close and we joke around a lot. Once during a slow shift, my employee and I had an argument because we were looking at the lingerie boxes, and I thought that two specific boxes had the same woman on it, but she was 100% positive they weren't the same person.

Looking back, I don't know why it was such a big deal to us at the time, but we even called another employee who lives across the street to come and tell us what the heck was up with that. Turns out I was right, and she was pretty salty about it. It was a great night.

Wicked Witch of the West

I almost got into an argument with an old girlfriend over Glinda the good witch from Oz. She insisted that Glinda was manipulating Dorothy to assassinate the Wicked Witch of the West and convince the Wizard to leave to create a political void she could fill.

I conceded the issue when I heard the whole premise because I thought it was too damn stupid to get worked up over.

Keep Your Hands to Yourself

Just the other day I legit got in an argument with my co-workers on why I don't like my butt being grabbed by anyone (I'm a guy). Seriously.

They went on about "I don't mind it. Mike and I do it all the time and we don't care." Yeah, that's nice dude, but I'm not you, and there's something called "Keep your hands to yourself" (which was taught to a good portion of us growing up). Just like how Karen wouldn't like it if I touched her boobs or her grabbing your crotch or frankly ANY area you wouldn't like being grabbed, keep away. In general, you should not be touching me in any areas after I've told you not to several times before.

So unless you're sleeping me or dating me, keep your damn hands off my toosh.

Telekinesis

My best friend and I argued over whether or not telekinesis was possible. Her argument was that humans don't yet know what the human brain at 100% usage was capable of, and that telekinesis was inside the possibilities.

I said the brain does use 100%, just at different times.

We didn't speak to each other for four days.

Ghosts

How dolphins reproduced and whether or not ghost existed (back to back with the same person). It took me a few solid minutes of explaining to her that dolphins have reproductive organs and that they did not just pop into existence (the argument began with her saying she wanted to work with sea creatures).


How it shifted to the existence of ghosts is a solid and reasonable question to ask (I don't remember why). I had to then proceed to tell her that ghost hunting TV shows do not constitute as undeniable evidence.

Personally, I hope she was messing with me cause I lost a little faith in humanity that day. This was in high school SO... hopefully she was kidding.

Dogs and Chocolate

Giphy

I told this stupid woman that chocolate is toxic to dogs. She went on to tell me how a little bit will just make them hyper and then they will calm down. I told her to google it. Her and her bf shut right up. Now they have a kid. Good luck, Jeremy and Andrea. morons.

I should also add that this argument started because Jeremy was giving his tiny dog chocolate and I told him it was toxic.

My roommate and I have a recurring argument over whether or not water is wet l, and whether or not a person is considered wet underwater.

For the record, it is no to both questions.

Mission Trip

A kid a church telling me about the mission trip I went on. Not only was I not on that trip, but I had never been on any mission trip. We were good friends, so it's not like he would've mistaken someone else for me.

He insisted I was there as if an entire week long trip would just fall out of my memory. He even had stories of things we'd done together. I'm not sure if he thought I was lying, joking, stupid, or crazy, but I was pretty sure he was some combination thereof.

Dragon Tales

One time I got into a shouting match with my mom and little brother in the car. The issue? The names of the two-headed dragon from the PBS kids afternoon show Dragon Tales. I swore it was Zack and Macie.

It was actually Zak and Wheezie. I don't even remember why we were yelling about it.

Green Or Yellow?

When I was about 15 or so my mother and I spent about 20-30 minutes arguing about the color of a shirt. We agreed it was blue/green, but to me it was just a shade more blue, while to her it was just a bit more green.

Turns out, your eyeballs yellow as you age and hers were 24 years yellower than mine, so I think that skewed her color vision.

Giphy

I once got in an argument over whether or not a line from the song "Stars" in Les Mis says "...but mine is the way of the lord" or "mine is the way of the law".

I didn't even really care what he thought but he was so adamant and cocky that it got me heated. By the end of it we were shouting at each other and I had to apologize, which I think is what he wanted the whole time.

Colorblind

My brother is colorblind. And he CONSTANTLY tries to correct me on what color things are.

"Hey could you hand me that red _____?" "that's orange" "no, it's red" "orange" "YOU CANT EVEN KNOW".

It is the base of our most common and heated arguments.

Hot Water

About five years ago, my girlfriend (now wife) once had a very intense argument about whether or not hot water cleaned things better than cold water.

She genuinely believed that water temperature didn't matter. This is someone who has not one, but two masters degrees.

We argued for something like 2 hours, and we seriously almost broke up over the whole thing.

Biology Class

I had an argument with a girl IN THE MIDDLE OF A BIOLOGY CLASS in high school about how humans are not mammals. She thought a human was a human and we are not mammals because "mammals are animals and humans are not animals"

I tried explaining to her the difference between reptiles and mammals and how humans fall under the mammal category to try and educate her... but she just wouldn't listen.

I still have no idea why the BIOLOGY teacher did not get involved...

Solid Or Liquid?

Some classmates and I got into a heated debate as to whether or not the human body could count as a soup, salad, or sandwich. The teacher got mad at us, but hey! All we were doing was watching a movie.

For the record, my logic lays with soup- Liquid contained within a solid, at a hot temperature.
