Random pastry movement: brownie in motion.
EDIT:

You can now get this as a mug :bucktooth:

/EDIT

TRUE STORY:

When I first heard about random particle movement, I was in 8th grade. And all I heard was “brownie in motion,” which, while odd, didn’t seem any stranger than any other phrase I’d heard in my science career.

Fast-forward seven years to my Modern Physics class in college. It was then that I learned the phrase was “Brownian motion,” but only after telling my brownie in motion story to my fellow physics majors. They were pretty appalled, but it seemed to explain their curiosity behind why I was always the person boosting the test curves by failing everything.

I think it goes like this:

Long short story
-Someone ate sweets/brownies, had a stomach ache, and went to the bathroom

I have never heard of Brownian Motion...or Brownies in Motion. (If my brownie is moving, I don't generally interact with it :XD: ) But I am glad you explained in the artist notes. It made the whole thing a whole lot funnier for this layman. :XD:

It's funny how we hold on to certain interpretations from childhood that end up being totally wrong. When I was a child, for a while, I thought the line in Silent Night ("Jesus, lord at thy birth") was "Jesus, low in fiber." :giggle:

Congrats on the DD!

I saw this in the footer hours ago and didn't take much notice except to note that another six-word story seemingly got a DD.

I just saw it in the footer again. I finally got it :slow:
Nice pun :D

Nice!

I like the spin on things there, and how you've related something as delightful as brownies with something as... eh. >.>

I'm not a fan of science. >.<

Your choice of words is quite fitting for the concept, and I like the way you've phrased things as well.

It's pretty light, but then you could interpret it as something serious as well. :O

I literally just fell off the couch laughing. And I climbed back on it to keep reading, and reading your TRUE STORY set me off again.

I am wiping tears out of my eyes. I'm lucky I wasn't drinking something--I might not have a computer left. I am going to be laughing about this for days, every time I remember it.

Thank you so very, very much.
