Poll: How many licks did it take your kid to get to the center of that Tootsie Roll Pop before you realized that wasn't a Tootsie Roll he was eating?
  • 33.3% - OH GOD NO! WHY?! WHYYY???!!! 208
  • 63.5% - Meh. He's building a wicked strong immune system. 396
  • 3.2% - Something else (comments, please) 20

Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

When I was in middle school (many moons ago), I went on a trip with my church group that was a 13-hour van ride away. We did not have iPods and super cool entertaining stuff back then, so I counted how many licks it took to get to the center of the tootsie roll pop. The total number of licks it took me was 2,523. I have nothing to compare this to since none of the other kids were interested in trying it...they were too busy listening to their Walkman's.

It's 3 BTW (ask the owl). But that isn't what the poll is asking. They're talking about the dead bird carcass the kid found in the backyard while you were in the house.

My kids were always more into rocks and dirt clods than dead rodents and the like.
