Marshmallow Farming
A video of a news segment about marshmallow farming in North Carolina recently appeared on youtube:


It looks like it was inspired by the BBC's famous Swiss Spaghetti Harvest April fool's day segment.

The reporter identifies himself as being from Channel 9 news in Iredell County. But there's no info about what year this first aired. So I sent the station an email to find out what they might know.

I bake bread from scratch once in a while. One time my six y.o. nephew was watching and wanted to help. In all of his six year old wisdom, he said, "I know all about how to make bread!"

So I asked him what was needed to start. He said, "First, you get some dough..." I then asked where one got "some dough". "Do you get it from a tree? Or a mine?"

A look of confusion crossed his face and he said, "I don't know!", and he ran out of the kitchen leaving me alone to continue.
