The first installment of this series should’ve been The Robin Hood of Cheese Fries, but I hadn’t conceived that I’d be documenting more ridiculous things done under the influence of alcohol. (Silly me!)
Last Friday, my coworkers and I went out after work to have a few beers. At this particular bar, they had haphazardly placed random autumn decorative knick-knacks around the booths and on the walls, such as tiny plastic pumpkins and Indian corn. During our more sober moments, we agreed that it was all sort of tacky. Later on in the evening, someone pointed out that the corn could be put in the microwave and popped.
Woah. Our minds were blown. Could that really happen?
Being scientists, we collected our sample (i.e. stole the corn) and brought it back to the lab. We put it in a microwave with a working light so we could watch it pop. Here is my documentation of the experiment:
As you can see, it was a very successful experiment. I also had the great idea of filming the whole popping process with my camera. Unfortunately… well, you’ll see what happened:
In case you missed it, here are certain key points of the video:
– Starts off with SP saying “Wow…”
– Then mayhem/disappointment ensues after I tell JY and SP that I screwed up.
– Finally, even though I am intoxicated (or maybe because I am intoxicated), I bossily order JY not to touch the corn before I take the “after” picture.
p.s. Don’t worry, we didn’t eat the popcorn afterwards.
