Psycho revisited


"I won't take a bite of your cheek. But if I do, I will swallow. Thus speaketh the lord."

This is not an exerpt of a new Hannibal movie. And it's not the first sentence marking a new religion (although some people might find it intriguing...), as far as I know..

What it is, is a phrase spoken by a client "of ours" (i.e. one of the lawyers I work with), when visited in prison this morning. To make things really cozy, they were locked in a security visiting room, two storeys under ground level. "My" lawyer is a tough cookie, but after about 45 minutes of this she thought it best to leave. He'd come to the point he wasn't quite sure whether he was God or Jesus...

This is another reason I'm glad I'm only an office clerk!

On the bright side, though, he started the whole seance by taking his shirt off and "revealing" to her why he wanted her to bring a bra, C cup. The joys of bipolarity...

- I may have forgotten to mention that the visiting room, albeit in a high security prison, is a locked-up room with only a table and two chairs. Nothing to separate Hannibal from his prey, as it was... Still want to have a go at it, Sam?

Oh... What would movies be without reality?

I would have peed my pants.

Hm... Maybe there is a reason I am not a lawyer...?

So creeeeeepy...Lots of nuts out there. At least this one was locked up. You don't think Hannibal Lecter is just a fictional character, do you? (Look up Ed Gein, amongst other better known chiller, like Jeffrey Dahlmer).

i would have started screaming, making frantic calls on my cell phone, ok, peeing my pants and being physically sick. Your colleague is brave!

Holy Crap! This is what goes on in our neighbourhood?

I'm afraid I'm secretly hoping "your" lawyer doesn't succeed on getting this one off whatever hook he's on! Please keep this one off the streets!

I'm not sure what this guy has done, he was already sentenced when he switched to our office...

Anyway, she's helping him with something in prison (I think he wants out of ultra high security and into only security - after all he's in the safest prison already!), nothing will get him out of there.

Not for a few years, anyway ;)

Visiting from Chloe's site; I don't know what's more amazing; your colleagues's ability to do this, or the fact that you have 5 children !!!! Kudos to you!

I would've found it quite funny, provided there were a few inches of security perspex between me and the fruitcake.

I do not underdtand what is there to be afraid of...Truth?

It is true, we don't bite. But if we do bite then we tend to swallow... After having chewed a little bit as well... just for the taste...


It doesn't mean we' ve gone cuckoo...
