I admit it; I feel a little bad. I hope you will forgive me. I know you count on Cole and me to amaze and entertain you. We try never to let you down. Cole, of course, is not at fault; he was full of reasons why blowing up a turkey in a deep fryer could be fun. I had to say no. I just could not get past the hot, sizzling grease; turkey breasts; and drumsticks flying into our overly sensitive neighbors’ gutters and trees. What came to mind was WKRP in Cincinnati’s Turkey Drop episode (1978). “As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly!!!”—Arthur Carlson, WKRP in Cincinnati. This quote is from the famous episode in which Station Manager Arthur Carlson (played by Gordon Jump) arranged to have live turkeys dropped from a helicopter as an advertising stunt. Unfortunately, it turned out to be a serious miscalculation. The poor birds plunged to earth, never even having a chance.
Nixing turkey explosions, I did agree to the MythBusters’ beer-freezing experiment. Yes, of course I considered broken beer bottles and a freezer that smelled like a brewery, but could this experiment really be messier than attempting to blow up a Twinkie in the microwave?
According to the “all-you-ever-wanted-to-know-about-cranberries” website, “A fresh cranberry will bounce four inches.” Cole asked if I would buy cranberries to see if they really bounced. Sure. Why not? Stepping on cranberries beats explaining to a neighbor why a raw turkey drumstick is hanging from his gutter.
Are you ready to be amazed? Have you been waiting your entire life to finally find out if beer can be frozen instantly and if cranberries bounce four inches? I knew it!
