Yet Another Excuse To Eat Chocolate (Limerick)

Just what we all need — yet another reason to eat chocolate!

Eat chocolate, win a Nobel Prize?

It may sound far-fetched, but a new study suggests it might not be bad advice.

The results show countries that eat the most chocolate also have the highest number of Nobel laureates per capita.

Yet Another Excuse To Eat Chocolate (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

If you want yet another excuse
To engage in some chocolate abuse,
It seems eating those sweets
Will create smart elites
And can Nobel Prize winners produce.

UPDATE: If you need a further excuse, I’ve just learned that December 16th is Chocolate Covered Anything Day.

    A funny assertion to make, for sure.

  2. Causality? Maybe Nobel Laureates eat more chocolate rather than chocolate eaters produce more Nobel Laureates. Maybe. :-)
