Deep Thought

Forget about building a better mousetrap. Invent a microwave popcorn that never burns, and the world will beat a path to your door.

(Incidentally, in searching for the origin of the adage about building a better mousetrap, I ran across an interesting article about mousetraps. I haven't finished the whole thing yet, but I've read enough to know that there's quite a bit more to mousetrap invention/sales than I realized.)

Ah, but what about the quintessential mousetrap invention- the Mousetrap Car??!

My son and his grandpa are currently in a competition to build the best one!

So funny how your posts are always so timely to my life... Are you stalking me??? Ha! :)

Thanks for the great article link- I passed it on to son and grandpa :)
