I dunno...go to any playground and you see little boys going: "Let's see if if all five of us can get onto a bike and ride down these concrete stairs" or "Wonder how many worms I can stuff into my mouth"

You never see girls doing stuff like that. Men are just weird from birth.

That's not being weird ... that's research!

Has anyone ever tried any recipes from Nanny Ogg's Cookbook?
