Follies of the Madmen #202

"Fun to play with, not to eat!" "Impossible to eat!" And why did the last commercial change the refrain to "impossible to BEAT"...?

Yeah, right, impossible to eat. How many of these imitation foodstuffs were forcefed or enticingly offered to unsuspecting younger siblings who scarfed them down?

IIRC, if you could gag it down it was edible. But, then again, I was the oldest of my generation so I didn't have to try any of it.

"Lemon tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat."
- Peter, Paul, and Mary - 1962

(funny how a simple phrase can dredge uo a memory of an entire song)

It's probably more nutritious and safer than many of the fast food and microwave frozen things we eat today.

Actually playdough contains wheat.

Hopefully they'll be coming out with a gluten free version for Christmas this year.

It probably maintains the same consistency coming out as going in. (different smell though)

Patty, once you hit the back side of the mountain, that will be one of your most fondest wishes.
