Mike Browne's Lunch-Box


Lunch Box Spy

Lunch-Box spies are people with a wicked sense of humour and a willingness to go the extra mile to learn the inner-most secrets of their victims. Lunch-Box spies are people who will go where no one else dares to go, who are persistent and determined to get to the bottom of the lunch box and reveal the true personality of its owner. Lunch-Box spies have very little else to do in life. They are easily amused by small details. They are prolific story-tellers who are able to weave magic from a few crumbs.

Become a Lunch-Box spy today!

Identify a target! Aquire a film! Arm yourself with a tape-recorder, or simply sidle up to your victim with a small pad and pen.

There are some things you need to know about interviewing a person about something as sensitive as their lunch.

The purpose of getting a lunch box history on a person is to be able to "paint a picture" of who they really are. The information from the history should not just be a random collection of facts. The history should include witty and insightful comments. The object is to reveal the true personality of your victim. While doing an interview, pay careful attention to how the person is responding to your questions, and if they appear uncomfortable discussing some aspect of their lunchbox press for more information. You are clearly on to something. This could be a scoop!

So begin the interview by being open: "I'd like to find out about your lunch. Could you tell me about it? Describe it to me as if you were telling me your life story." Most people will leave out certain details. They will be loathe to tell you about lunches they left to die, lunches they threw away, lunches they swapped. But this is the important stuff! Ask probing questions. Come right out and ask them for precise information. Blast them with direct questions. We want to find out as much as we can about what people eat at lunch time, how their eating patterns have changed, whether they are content with the same old lunch each day or if they need variety.
