Describing a cuboid
You are a fine lot of solids.
Are you all feeling well?
I am looking for a cuboid to play the part of a shoebox in a very exciting action movie.
Step forward, do not be afraid.
You are a beautiful cuboid.
Can you show me your rectangular faces?
One, two, three, four, five, and six.
Your rectangular faces are magnificent!
Now, let us see how you measure up.
How many edges have you got?
One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve!
Perfect, they are all there!
Now, let us see what your corners are like under the lights.
One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight corners.
You are magnificent, cuboid.
You will look great on the big screen, but are you the right size to play a shoebox?
That is what I thought.
You are too small for this part.
But you would be perfect as the jewelry box.
A new candidate for the part!
Show me your six rectangular faces.
Your twelve edges?
And your eight corners?
Your measurements are just perfect.
But I think you will be too flat for a shoebox.
Do not worry, I have got another part for you.
With some makeup, you could be a book.
What do you think?
Let us see if you fit the part.
You have got six rectangular faces, twelve edges, eight corners.
And I think you are just about the right size for a shoebox.
Let us check.
Thanks to you, I have three fantastic actors to play the leading roles, the shoebox, the book and the jewelry box.
Are you ready?
We can start shooting the film.
"The Amazing Adventures of a Fabulous Shoebox," take one.
