The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

The question of the ages

It's never been determined exactly how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop, although a great deal of research has gone into the matter over the years.

The problem, of course, is that each person has a distinct licking style, so to speak. And if you keep losing count, well, here's the device for you. I suppose it's too much to hope that it's made in Newark, Ohio.

You lick a tootsie pop?
I always suck mine until it got soft enough to bite and eat the center...
