    That cornibalism to be exact. But pardon me for linguistic nitpicking.

    Wait, popcorn eating popcorn would be cannibalism. Nothing to do with chickens.
    They sound rather peckish to me.

    There’s a kernel of truth to this.
    But only if you have an ear for it.

    I’m not sure why popcorn cares so much about chicken bits….
    But The Kernel has no way to get revenge…


    Oil he’ll accomplish by standing there is to get hotter and hotter till his head explodes.


    Doesn’t he have something butter to do?


    Kinda corny joke, anyway….
    but aw, shucks…

    Individually they didn’t have much courage. But together they had…..

    Popcorn Balls

    4 quarts popped corn
    2 cups coarsley chopped pecans
    1 cup butter or margarine
    1/1/3 cups sugar
    1/2 cup light corn syrup
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract (real not artificial)

    Mix first 2 ingredients in 6 – quart mixing bowl.
    Melt butter in small heavy saucepan and add sugar and corn syrup.
    Bring to boil, stirring, and simmer 3 minutes.
    Add vanilla and blend well.
    Pour over popcorn and nuts, mixing constantly.
    Let stand 2 minutes to cool.
    With hands dampened in cold water, shape in 2 1/2" balls and arrange on baking sheet to set up.
    Wrap each in plastic wrap and store in cool dry place.
    Makes about 20.

    Ahhh yes……takes me back to the ’50’s where a neighbor would make for Halloween and other occasions. Not sure what she specifically used, but have not had that flavor since. Recipe is ripe for experimentation. THX!

    Meanwhile, overhead, a large pigeon did a double-take and began to circle downward.
