Example text

Three Imponderables for the price of one. The first part is easy. The most common form of tumbleweed, the one you see wreaking havoc in movie westerns, is the Russian thistle. But actually the term is applied to any plant that rolls with the wind, drops its seed as it tumbles, and possesses panicles (branched flower clusters) that break off. Usually, the stems of tumbleweed dry up and snap away from their roots in late fall, when the seeds are ripe and the leaves dying. Although tumbleweeds cannot walk or fly on their own, they are configured to move with the wind.

Alas, while one company taketh away holes, another provideth them. We may have lost our beloved pot pie vents, but the folks at M&M/Mars have inserted them in their TWIX Bars. We assumed that the answer to this Imponderable was that the ingredients in holes were considerably less expensive then those for the cookie bar itself. The more air in the product, the bigger the product seems, and the greater the value of the product is perceived to be (Cheerios and Ivory Soap certainly haven’t suffered commercially from their airy constitutions).

They also lick urine markings to tell them something about the animal they are “researching,” but the eating of feces is more than territorial data-gathering. It’s also a gourmet delicacy—they think. Can you imagine a dog not liking ripe olives or oysters and wondering about that dumb human who’s eating bitter berries and a mollusk that looks like snot? Sounds like a Gary Larson “Far Side” anthropomorphism, doesn’t it? Dogs also eat the traces (droppings) of other species. They are positively addicted to rabbit “pellets,” love deer “nuggets,” horse “road apples,” etc.
