~“Chickens and Cows”~

Maybe Doolittle weighs more than 95 pounds now.  Marshmallow Peeps are only 12 calories each; I think the peanut butter eggs and bubble gum are probably more than that.

There were a couple of scientists who once did a study on marshmallow Peeps to determine what they could survive.   The company that makes them claims the yellow chicks have a shelf life of 2 years.  Honestly, I think Peeps would last longer than that.

These two scientists at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, found in their research that Peeps will not dissolve in water.  Moreover, the scientists found that not even sulfuric acid would dissolve the sugar crusted chickens.

The scientists need to know that the Peeps could not escape my 95+ pound big poodle.  I don’t suppose they tried very hard to get away from him.  Based on the carpet in my basement, Doolittle ate too many of them.  It was either that or he decided that he couldn’t keep the bubble gum down.

Enough about the chickens, have you heard about the Louisiana cow?

There is a young man in Slidell, Louisiana who wanted to go on a “student ambassador” trip to England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales.  It is a 19 day trip and it is going to cost the boy about $8,000 to go.

Being one of six children, the young man knew that he was going to have the raise the money for his trip on his own.  Bake sales and carwashes can only bring in so much when you are working alone.
