Chubby Bunny

You ever play chubby bunny before? I played it once like 22 years ago, then forgot about it until yesterday. Tonight after dinner, the Munsons played chubby bunny.

It’s easy to play. The only thing you need is a bag of smore-sized marshmallows. Pick one person to go first. They stick a marshmallow in their mouth and have them  say “chubby bunny.” ( No chewing! Just leave it there.) Then you do that over and over until their mouth can’t hold any more marshmallows and they start laughing and spit the slobbery marshmallows all over the place. Now that’s what I call entertainment.

Here are the totals:

Suzanne: 5 marshmallows. She went first and she couldn’t stop laughing. I think that’s why she got last place.

Zach: 6 marshmallows. It was a dream come true for him. His parents laughed and cheered while he crammed as much sugar into his mouth as he could.

Abby: 7 marshmallows. In this sport, missing teeth is almost the equivalent to steroids.

Me: 13 marshmallows. Ohh yeah!Uh huh! Chubby Bunny champ! I had a little time to taunt my wife and kids. Then I scooped out a sink full of  slimy marshmallows before giving in to the sugar coma. Yeah, my jaw is sore from stretching like a python. And the cavity monsters in my mouth probably feel like they just won the lottery. But that’s what it takes to be a champ. Maybe in another 22 years (dentures out!) I’ll be ready to defend my title.

      Hi Rania!
      Sheesh- sorry for taking over a year to get back to you. 19 marshmallows? And 24 for your brother?? Wowza- You should go pro 🙂

  3. Ha! I think my daughter would just love this game… Derek, I sent you a message on your website but we (The Storybook Shoppe in Bluffton, SC) recommended your fabulous Enemy Pie to our audience this week on our blog. Hope you have a second to check it out. We’d love you to come to the store and do a signing! Have fun with those marshmallows!

      Thanks Storybook Shoppe!
      I posted on your Facebook page a couple days ago. And I also had to post a picture of your store on my personal page, because honestly yours is the most amazing bookstore I’ve ever seen…
      I have a new book coming out at the beginning of November titled Bad Dad, and I’ll be doing some touring with that. I’m not sure if I’ll be out that far (I live about as far northwest as you can be in the US), but if I’m anywhere near I would love to come visit your store. I was out in SC a few years back for a school visit, and had a blast in Charleston.
      Thanks again, and glad you liked Enemy Pie!
