and Gentlemen, I have incredible news, said
the Illustrious Pooh-bah. Our scientists
have discovered that the Moons surface is
composed of a substance similar to cream cheese.
Soon, well be able to end global hunger
Excellency, how will we get the cheese from there
to here? asked a reporter.

show it is easily digested by anyone.
boa constrictor doesnt have digestive
problems, said a reporter, as long as
I feed it white mice fourteen times a day. Will
Moon Cheese be an adequate substitute?
Tests with boa constrictors show they only need
one Moon Cheese feeding per week. Once they get a
taste, they refuse everything else. Think of the
savings in pet food you and other boa
constrictors owners will realize. Susan, I see
you jumping up and down in the back.
you, Excellency. If everyone ends up eating
Moon Cheese, will it affect waste elimination?
glad you asked. Tests have shown that elimination
will cease permanently in humans, animals, birds,
fish, and insects. This means untold trillions
will be saved when we shut down the worlds

Amalgamated States of America. For a while, the
entire nation will have to stay indoors once
everybody eats Moon Cheese. We know this will be
an inconvenience. But it wont be forever.
Our scientists are working on the aroma problem
right now. Look, if we can get the Moon Cheese
here, end global hunger, and end the daily
accumulation of millions of cubic yards of body
waste, I think the American People will put up
with a bit of readjustment while we figure how to
handle a few drops of forehead ooze. Ill
take one more question.
will the first supply of Moon Cheese be available?
year. I know youre all eager to try it. I
already have. Its absolutely delicious. I
had two heaping platefuls for breakfast.
some in the audience noticed a green substance
oozing from Pooh-Bahs forehead.
