How do you know that it is unusual? Perhaps it is pretty usual. Can you elaborate with an example?

Wow. Then he must have a massive BMI. I have no doubt that he was Kibitzing.

Did he eat it twice or only say it twice? Perhaps he was just a jolly fellow.

Egg Matza only has flour, eggs & apple cider. However regular cookies have sugar which causes the flour to rise in quicker than 18 minutes.

comment Play-doh, Passover, and Purina
See also en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk%3APlay-Doh where it says "No, it's a petroleum distillate all right. That's what gives Play-Doh its characteristic smell. The amount used is small enough that Play-Doh is non-toxic (not sure it would be considered "food grade," but Play-Doh isn't food, and presumably doesn't have to meet the requirements of food -- simply has to be nontoxic as some kids certainly do ingest it in small amounts)"

comment Play-doh, Passover, and Purina
See: failedsuccess.com/index.php?/weblog/comments/playdoh_history where it says "However, it is known to contain, among other things, wheat flour, water, salt, and some sort of petroleum distillate."
