And the inappropriate follow-up question award goes to Life at the condo for asking: Do the raisins travel all the way through?

Brian said...

Yes. They're like little Raisinets. Gross but fascinating. Now when I feed Erin raisins, I say "Chew, Erin. Chew."

Christie said...

Good advice. Corn appears to also be poopagenic. That they retain their shape and relative size after traveling through spaceship body is quite bizarre.

Blueberries have a similar phenomena.

It makes me wonder if they get any calories/nutrition from these foods or if it just fills them up and passes on by.
