"Meeka - what are we looking for?"
He needed a break so he explained. Apparently there are some very odd customs in our country for New Year's Eve celebrations. I'm sure you've all heard about the giant glass ball that drops in Times Square, New York. Evidently that's not the only thing that gets dropped. In Key West, Florida they drop a Pirate! Woo! I'm going to have to warn my buddy Maverick the Pirate to avoid that city on New Year's Eve! We don't want him to get dropped from the sky. In Bethlehem, Pennsylvania they drop a 25 pound Peep. Peeps are those wonderful marshmallow things that appear around Easter. Apparently the Bethlehem Peep is made out of fiberglass and not marshmallow though. In Ohio they drop a 600 fish and an 18 pound sausage.....now THAT is one I'd like to see! In North Carolina they drop a 3 foot glowing pickle. We know that's the truth because our Grandmom verified it. They also drop a 1,250 pound acorn. We should let our good friend Khyra know about that. Maybe she can get rid of the pesky squirrels that have invaded her yard. But the one that really caught our attention was Wisconsin. Those folks drop a giant hunk of cheese! That's right - cheeeeese! According to our calculations taking into consideration wind speed and the rotation of our planet, Meeka thinks we should see it pretty soon. Come on over - we'll share!
