The Law of Swings and Roundabouts

Proof perhaps
Clues contained
In increments
Of time ( t )
Taken to mash potatoes ( m )
With implement ( i )
  • slow for fork
  • fast for masher
But weighed against
Time taken to clean ( c ) said instrument
  • fast for fork
  • slow for masher
Giving us:

t = im + ic

And the inverse relationship of m and c
Ensures t remains a constant
No matter the value of i.
Proof of God,
No matter what
The self-satisfied
Richard Dawkins has to say,
But sadly also proof
Of His esoteric humour
And the fact that
You won't win
You can never win.

what if you were to.. say.. kick god in the nuts?

would the mash taste sweeter?

I think your working is sound.

Perhaps you can apply for a grant to study the effects of the variables Butter (b), and Milk (M) on t?

...or what happens as t approaches zero?

All this Maths is making me hungry...

(Damn Google/Blogger doesn't let me sign off as "The other, OTHER Sam" - my cover is blown!)

Kath - thank you

WT - I may have just, quasi-inadvertently, done so. Sweet potatoe makes the mash taste sweeter.

TooS - a grant inclusive of a field trip to Ireland would be an elegant sufficentcy.
