The Mysterious Filing Cabinets of Compliments and Condiments


In 1903 these mysterious filing cabinets were unearthed from the ruins of an abandoned estate and gifted to the National Museum of Klah. At first they were stored in the back room as part of the Rather Dull But Potentially Historical Collection, where approximately 6 visitors went a year, and 5 of those were normally lost and looking for the bathroom. However, in 1906, a young and enthusiastic cleaner by the name of Hankel opened one of the drawers and discovered a piece of paper with fresh gold ink, which read:

Our dearest Hankel

You have a Glorious Heart.

Those Overalls

Really Bring out the Colour

In your Eyes.

Once he had finished blushing, he thought to open the other drawer, where he found several small bottles with labels such as “Hankel’s Ravishing Relish”, “Hankel’s Finest Tom. Sauce” and “Chutney de Hankel”. The Mysterious Filing Cabinets of Compliments and Condiments are now displayed in the foyer to the Museum, where there is always a queue of people wanting personalized compliments and/or condiments. If you do make it to Terbiak, where the Museum is located, the cabinets are well worth the visit.
