d. Humor connected with Food

...There were all kinds of groups that built around them defense mechanisms, so there were those who exchanged recipes all day. We were supposed to stay on our bunks on Sundays through the bunks recipes were passed how much sugar, how much flour how much this or that. Someone next to me gave many recipes and all of a sudden her mood changed and she didn't want to participate they asked if I knew what happened to her I said 'I think I think she burned her cake...'
...Food was not enough, we were very sad, so I said: 'there is a way, if we could get hold of a magnifying glass it would right away magnify our portions, how can we get one'?
