  Napoleon gets a woody!
by Roadquill

The building is so massive that I would have thought that there would have been a really cool museum on Napoleon, like a comparison of his right arm bones and left arm bones. But nooooooo, there is this big porphery (looks like wood) casket, some uniform displays and some other dead guys. The nave, if that is what it is, was cool and the building was cool, but .... come on. Now I have come to find out that there are six caskets surrounding the original Napster. A few lead, Mahogany. I guess they didn't want him to get loose again.

Unique Suggestions: Think of a kind of meat dish that would sound good with Napoleon. Like there is Beef Wellington. How about Napoleon's Meat Balls? or better yet Napoleon's Short Ribs?
