You know the millions and millions of words of fanfic piled up across the Internet? Thanks to Plotagon, they're about to be joined by millions and millions of seconds of fanflick. Not that I'm complaining. I like a good alternate ending to the Buffy the Vampire Slayer musical episode as much as the next guy. And now that I know I can have live, animated action to go with it? You people better get...

Although Deglon is a French company, Meeting Knife Set just doesn't do this 4-count of nested slice-and-dicers the same justice of linguistic imagery Russian Doll Knife Set, or Venn Diagram Knife Set would. Not that I wouldn't buy them. At least not out of spite for the poor choice in naming. Probably I wouldn't buy them out of being too poor to spend over $700 on a set of knives, even if said...
