The Chocolate Choo-Choo

Despite what the YouTube poster writes, this song was issued to the marketplace, as you can see from the pic of the physical record and the advert.

Chocolate Teapot

Science has solved the problem of how to make a chocolate teapot that can withstand boiling water long enough to let the tea brew for two minutes before pouring.

Yes, aliens probably have never had a cup of cocoa until they visit Earth; and if individuals of their kind live for hundreds of years, that would indeed be a very long time to go without cocoa.

But you know what? Aliens, cocoa...? Forget it! I still don't get the connection, no matter how hard I try.
