I showed him the knife, didn't even flinch.
Sliced and diced, still no reaction.
The original fudge-a-gator all dressed up in it's fanciest New Year's finery. Presented to Rim for a party dessert. She was very upset that I cut up the fudge-a-gator (quite famous in our neighborhood). After a while she selected the head, with it's piercing green eyes, lamented it's demise and popped it right in her mouth. Hmmmmm
So now I am 93% sure the fudge-a-gator was a confection.
