One of our new (okay, it's not that new) favorite Tumblr blogs is "Memos from Fury," which consists of a collection of hilarious company memos from S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury, played by Samuel L. Jackson in all the recent Marvel movies, including The Avengers. The memos, which obviously do not come from Marvel and are in no way official, give us a comedic look at the day-to-day life of what goes on inside S.H.I.E.L.D., from Tony Stark's attempts to throw drinking contests to the many practical jokes shoveled out at the expense of Steve Rogers.
Marvel has attempted this sort of day-in-the-life of S.H.I.E.L.D. in the shorts the company is attaching to each of the DVD/Blu-rays, but seeing this sort of interoffice politics applied to S.H.I.E.L.D. and its assortment of superheroes just sorta makes our day. Here's hoping they play around with these ideas in future Marvel movies without making it too shticky.
Check out five of our favorites below, and tons more over at Memos from Fury.
