RUM AND SCIENCE: Experimenting with Doctor Dreadful’s Zombie Lab

I’ve always been a big fan of Doctor Dreadful food kits.  I didn’t even think they were still around.  Then lo and behold, I was in a Michael’s with my girlfriend today and a colorful box caught the corner of my eye.  The crazy doctor that taught me sugar + water = flavor when I was a kid is still going at it.  When I was a kid and I was all like “Dad, buy me that Doctor Dreadful Stomach Churner kit!  BUY IT FORRRR ME I NEEEEEEEED IT.   DAAAAAAAAAAAD” and then he wouldn’t buy it for me because he already bought me the Bug Lab earlier that year; and it would make me sad.  BUT now I’m an adult and I have my own money, so SUCK IT DAD, I CAN BUY THIS STUPID ZOMBIE LAB IF I WANT TO.  I CAN BUY FOUR OF THEM IF I FEEL LIKE IT.  I’M A GROWN UP.

So anyway it crossed my mind to purchase one of these fun time food makers and see if they can stand the test of time while making them as an adult.  I’m also going to get drunk while I work in my laboratory, which is basically like a guarantee that I will puke violently by the end of the night.  But don’t worry, as you can see by this picture of my childhood bedroom wall, I already earned two diplomas in Dreadful Science, so I’m authorized to experiment how I please.
