Math Problem For Today

Millicent's pumpkin pie has a radius of 4.15 inches and a depth of 1.8 inches. Assuming the pie is cut into eight wedges, how many spoonfuls of real whipped cream topping will Millicent eat before she remembers she is lactose intolerant?

TRICK QUESTION! You can't get "Real" whiped cream topping any more. It's all fake.

Whall's right. No more of the real thing in those tubs. So...she'll eat every last squirt that commes out of the spray can.

Whall: Ahh, but you CAN get it if you make it yourself. :) Maybe Millicent is rich enough to afford a personal chef. I mean, with a name like "Millicent," it's certainly possible....

GigglePixie: I've never been much of a fan of whipped cream. Still, it always amazes (and somewhat repulses) me when I see someone hold one of those spray cans over their mouth and squirt whipped cream right in there. Ack. I have to wonder, if it's not actually made of whipped cream, what IS it?

Spray cans of whipped cream are verboten in our household. If I wanted air filled petroleum product on my pie, I would ask for it.

No no no sports fans, it is heavy cream whipped to an airy sweetened froth.

As for poor Millicent. She will remember in two hours after eating the whole pie when she is curled on the floor clutching the rebel nation known as her stomach ... but it will have been worth it.

There are much more fun ways to enjoy whipped cream.

That's all I got to say about that.

Later y'all.

Jamie: Air filled petroleum product? Really?

Meloncutter: True!

She'll eat the entire pie and spend the rest of the night giggling as she watches her family suffer the consequences of putting the cream on the pie in the first place when they know damned well what would happen.

Morgian: I'm not fond of it unless it's frozen solid into a brick. :) It IS good if you mix it with chocolate pudding and then freeze it!!

MyAutismInsights: Now I'm craving pumpkin pie...
