Ninety-five Challenge!s, and I don't remember as good a mysterious topic as this. I'm hoping to see a bunch of imaginative turkeys take wing this time ;-) Just be advised; turkeys can't fly too good, so they have to flap harder! Have fun, my darlin', darlin', Challenge!rs:

How To Drop Fifty Pounds At A Time With Sweet, Sweet, Style -- May 5, 2004, LONDON, England (Reuters) -- A woman with an apparently insatiable sweet tooth stunned staff at a British shop when she bought more than 10,000 chocolate bars and had them loaded into her chauffeur-driven limousine.

The woman asked staff at a north London Woolworths branch for every single Mars bar in stock -- 10,656 of them packed in 220 boxes -- and paid for them in cash with 50 pound notes, a Woolworths spokesman said on Wednesday.

The total bill was 2,131 pounds ($3,828).

'It was very, very strange but nobody thought to ask her why she wanted so many,' the spokesman said.

'It would usually take us a month to shift that number of chocolate bars,' he added. 'Perhaps she has a sweet tooth.'


All the best, Áine
