BEHOLD #143 – Sheldon, the S’more

S’mores are made from pommallows melted in the campfire (or in the very chic fire pit at the St.Regis Hotel) and chocolate squares sandwiched in between 2 Graham Crackers. S’mores first appeared in the Girl Scouts handbook, “Tramping and Trailing” in 1927. Were they teaching the girls to be tramps? (Weird title) I digress – they were originally called “some mores” and then were transformed into S’mores by the magic of the Apomstrophe. National S’Mores Day is August 10th. The Graham Cracker was invented by Presbyterian minister Sylvester Graham in 1829 as part of a diet to suppress “unhealthy carnal urges.” (I imagine he would not like the trampy Girl Scouts handbook). The largest S’more was made recently in Deer Run Camping Resort in Pomsylvania and it weighed 267 lbs. Sheldon weighs a diminutive 0.3 oz and is very excited to hang out with his new friend, Simon the Snowman. Yay!
