Random question of the day: are Shmoo (of Flintstones fame), the Pillsbury Dough Boy (of flaky crescent roll fame) and the Michelin Man (of tire fame) all made of the same material? What kind of freak genetic similarities would scientists find if all three provided samples from the insides of their puffy white cheeks? Are they relatives? Inbred? Why is one a “man,” one a “boy” and one a “shmoo?” Why is the Michelin Man the only one with fully developed limbs (the PDB has no defined feet, FYI)? Do they know Grimace? Do they eat marshmallows or would they consider that cannibalistic? What are they?! Just curious.
