Sheldon Conch and the Mysterious Note

I am fascinated by anonymous letters and notes.

So when I saw this random scrap of paper lying on a countertop at Ikea, I folded it up and put it in my pocket. My husband thought I was weird for doing this, but I had to know why someone would leave a note like this around. I knew that it was from something and I had to check it out.

Well it turns out that if you search for "some people say my head is too big for my body, then I say: compared to what?" the first result is a series of "short films" called Marcel the Shell with Shoes On.

I had seriously never heard of this little guy before until this note and I am so glad that I finally did.

There's a second part too that you should watch!



  1. That is awesome! I wonder what kind of biochemical process goes on in someone's brain before they can create something like Sheldon...

  2. I mean, Marcel.

  3. Haha, I used the name Sheldon in the title because of the second video in the series, where he says that his pen-name, if he ever had one, would be Sheldon Conch. :)

  4. I'm so glad you shared this on the Weekend Linkup. What a great discovery. So far, the random notes I've found have just led me to someone's grocery needs. :)
