...Don't you kinda wonder what prompted a Jell-O-brained scientist to actually DO this?

More fun to watch Jell-O jiggle on top of a jukebox.

Or to throw Jell-O at a bride and groom.

Or go to a restaurant, eat Jell-O and leave a big tip.

Or make an Alfred Hitchcock Jell-O mold salad.

Hmm. Maybe my brain IS Jell-O.

or do jello shots! ;-)

I like the idea of throwing cake and jello at the bride and groom! Make for a colorful and fun wedding.
