Yesterday, the Internet called

Last night, I received a random telephone call from a number that I did not recognize and, as is my style, I answered it. My, "Hello" was met with an, "Is this George Waksman?" to which I responded in the affirmative, a response that met with much revelry from the other end of the line. The call eventually turned out to be from some guy who come across my research into Tootsie Roll Pops and taken advantage of the fact that I keep my cell phone number on my homepage. This man was calling because he wanted to know both if I was serious and if I had really eaten all those Tootsie Roll Pops. Not being a lying sort of person, I of course informed the gentleman that I was only kind of serious but that I had in fact eaten all of those Tootsie Roll Pops. The man on the telephone seemed overjoyed by the information that I had just provided him, thanked me and took his leave of the telephone conversation.


I was that man. I called from the internet with several of my friends. I salute you, sir, for providing entertainment and answers to stoners everyehwere.

I was also present during the phone call and yes we were clearly overjoyed. I still want to know--what is your inspiration? Regardless, I hope you were having fun and we did not interrupt you too much.

My inspiration was that someone gave me a few Tootsie Pops at one point and I said to myself, hey, I should figure out how many licks it takes to get to the Tootsie Roll center of these things and I should do so in a scientific manner.

The call was really no bother either, I'm glad to help out inquiring minds however I can.

Full moon tonight!
