To be honest, I’m not exactly sure why my teacher assigned this task, but I quite enjoyed the way it echoed a middle school writing assignment where I wrote as a pair of shoes. I think? Maybe it was high school. Who can remember these things?
This post is a little different from the facebook one in that I’m including my intended translation, same as last time, for my Chinese-challenged friends. I’ll also link up the Google machine translation because it’s frakking hilarious.
An Anthropomorphic Riddle
My friends and I stand waiting for people to come and choose us. We live in a huge hall, and sleep on hard beds. Who comes to see us? Researchers, students, scientists; all humanity can freely search within our bodies for data, information, and stories.
Once you’ve found me, how do you find the information you need? I can’t speak, so you must open me up and turn through my viscera. Don’t get goosebumps; this kind of action doesn’t disturb me! My only goal is to help you.
What am I?
