On Science Class, Marshmallows, and Albino Catterpigs

Yesterday in science class, we made these little guys:

That right there is a Reebop. 

Reebops are made of marshmallows, toothpicks, thumbtacks, pushpins, and pipecleaners.

Yes, science class has been, er... Interesting... Of late...

 At least we didn't have to watch any more creepy animations with mind-numbing music.

And this here? Well that's also a reebop. But we thought it looked more like a white catterpillar mixed with a pig. Thus the name it was given: Albino Catterpig.

Oh, and as of yesterday, the word allele is officially pronounced "Uh-LAY-lee" (like ukulele). Courtesy of dear B'Elanna.


  1. You might want to explain what a Reebop is... not everyone is familiar with the study of genetics ;)

  2. Too funny! I liked thine postie! :)

    Yeah.... what's a reebop???? (OO)

  3. What is a Reebop... Now that is a good question. Our teacher never explained the whole Reebop thing. We just did the activity.


Hey there! Thanks for taking the time to comment. I like it. I'll try my best to reply to your comments, but I can't promise anything.
