Astronomers discover evidence that the Milky Way “tastes of raspberries.”
While scouring their data, the team found ethyl formate as well as evidence for the deadly chemical propyl cyanide in the same cloud.
Yeah, Galactus would find it tasty, but lethal.
Hmm. . .all we need now are a couple of chocolate nebula and we’re set.
I was hoping for snozberries, myself.
Raspberries? Oh yuck!
and with my luck, it’ll be that blue raspberry stuff.
Zenrage: Yeah, I knew I hated this galaxy for some reason.
guayec: It was a trap for Galactus by the Celestials. It failed.
If I worked for the Mars candy company I would be so over this.
Raspberry Milky Ways on the shelves by the end of the week.
Raspberry? There is only one man who would dare give me The Rasapberry.
But do chickens still taste of human?
Evan Waters- dammit, you beat me to the joke (but yours is probably better than mine would’ve been).
Meantime, someone better name their band Space Raspberries quick.
There is a product called ‘I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Spray.’ It comes in a pump-bottle, and artificially flavors your food. The nutritional information is nothing but zeroes. From this, we dubbed the product “spray nothing.”
Further, we assumed that if it was nothing in physical form, then the empty vacuum of space must taste of fake butter.
I therefore refute this “raspberry” hypothesis.
Man, 8 posts into an astronomy article and there’s already a Galactus, Spaceballs, and Willy Wonka joke. If you can’t figure out this site’s main demographic from that, you’ve got more issues than we do.
I quote, as further evidence of the whimsy this finding provokes: Astronomer Arnaud Belloche said: “It [ethyl formate] does happen to give raspberries their flavour, but there are many other molecules that are needed to make space raspberries.”
@ Zenrage: Yeah, but will it stain your lips blue?
