Wiffenpoofle! It’s not just a means of separating the fat from gravy, or getting only low or higher fat gravy, it’s a metaphor; Get with it!
With these words Angry Beaver took over the public radio pledge drive.
Sure, it’s all well and good to tell everyone how essential we are to their lives and all that blah, blah, blah but what we need is to de-humanize the face of public radio.
What we need are spokes-animals!
What’s not to like about a benevolent all-knowing horse? There’s some Fresh Air for you!
Unfortunately for you though . . we ran a a test with our focus-groups and though it was a close vote between a french-poodle and the little sailor boy, the poodle lost. At least the public is willing to see you as a person, on the other hand they see you as a person, which doesn’t bode well for your future as a spokes animal, trust me . . .
Ummmm . . . Ms/Mr. Beaver . . . Sir/Ma’am . . . I uh . . .
Hey! It’s already been decided by the secret neo-leftist cabal at headquarters. You don’t get to be a spokes-animal and you should be happy we’re keeping you around at all.
After all, I know you’re smart and got your Ph. D. studying the Bio-mechanics Of The Origami Jumping Frog. . . but you made a key mistake.
I reviewed your work and everyone knows that in a paper frog leg you can’t assume the bending stress is evenly distributed and use the formula Mb=(σbh) h/2 to calculate the load. You really should have gone with: Mb=σmaxbh2/6, where the bending stress is not evenly distributed through the bending member. Duh!
This accounts for the compression and elastic stress and gives a result about 1/3rd as much as the formula you used. Yes, Galileo used the same formula you did but times have changed and he was a genius.
That kind of missed detail might get you an origami bio-mechanics degree or a job at an off-balanced ‘news’ source but we’re Radio and we have standards!
Now go get me a coffee.
This neo-leftist cabal inspired gravy separator is 6 3/4 inches king by 8 inches deep, including the handle. If you call now we’ll throw in an official tote bag or coffee mug signed by the evil genius himself. Wiffenpoof song sheet music sold separately.
