    My brother has a perverted sense of humour.......
    My 13 year old sister is baking molasses cookies this evening and Andrew, 12 is helping by dropping spoonfuls of dough onto the cookie sheets. Then he gets this brilliant idea......he takes small pieces of dark molasses cookie dough, rolls it into balls, dents it a bit on two sides, places them in a neat little pile on a plate, walks into the computer room where I am working and says' "I just LOVE eating goat berries", drops one in his mouth and chews. I was caught so off guard and the light was dim enough that for a moment I was seriously considering the possibility that they *were* goat berries....LOL!! Brothers, Sheesh!!<grin>

    Brothers have a way of trying to gross out anyone big time. Sometime sisters do too. I was the sister that grossed out the others... seemed kind of funny to me to watch someone squirm and not know how to respond to my off beat sense of humor. :shrug:

    Goat berries? They're similar to rabbit berries. Maybe your sister should learn how to make a lighter colored recipe to keep your brother from saying that.

    Then again, he might call them faded goat berries. You might want to keep him away from raisins too. When he starts calling them possum and skunk scat, you know you have a problem. :p

    OMG, that's too funny! I could see my son trying something like that! He came to me at Christmas and told me we should leave "Reindeer Poo" on our friend's doorsteps. (chocolate covered raisins), and Snowman Poo for our friends (yogurt covered raisins). Kids!

    I ate some black beans in my mexican burrito the other day and I couldn't help but think of goat berries while I was eating.

    my grandmother made a cookie called "terds". They really looked like dog poop that had been outside on a cold frosty night. The most delicious cookie ever. In my recipe file they are listed as terds.

    LOL...I call them "milk duds", because that's what I think they look like. The molasses cookie idea, cool...I may have to use that at the next family party.

    I used to raise pet rats.. Yes, I know most of you think rat and think eww.. But pet rats are very sweet and can be very adorable.. Anyway, we had a saying.. "Beware of rats offering chocolate covered raisens"

    I made a sheet cake for our goat club and decorated it with a Boer goat. In the one corner, onto the plate, I put grape jelly beans. Everyone got a kick out of that.
