Kentucky Color: Sliced Pound Cake?

By Billy Joe Fudge

Of all the things I ever expected to find in the deep, forested hollars of the Great Wooded South was not, a slice of pound cake! That was the first thing which popped into my mind but possessing the lightning quick scientific mind that I do, I immediately realized that that was an impossibility.

So, as great scientific minds will do, I scratched pound cake and went directly to homemade soap as my next researchable theory. After a sashay through the annals of my most recent experiences with the Art and Science of Boiling Water and Ashes and Grease, I ruled out the slice of homemade soap theory as well.

For those of you who are beginning to enter into the land of scoffers, just remember that there is no failure in the scientific method of trial and error, only the ruling out the unlikely to arrive at the likely. The resulting theory of "likely", was then as obvious as the Green River Knob on a trip to the Somerset Harbor Freight to pick up a set of high quality sockets imported from the Orient; it was a slice of rock!

Now, as to how you come up with a slice of rock in a deep, forested hollar emptying out into the Mighty Cumberland River, just South of the misplaced or misnamed Wolf Creek Dam, is beyond me. Although my string of Doctorates from the Great Wooded South University is impressive and beyond compare, I only minored in geology. Due to this deficiency in the geological sciences, I am going to have to ask for the help of those who might be experts in this field! Real scientists are never afraid to seek help. After all, finding the truth supersedes all frailties of human emotion!
