Stomach Vs. Brain
on October 15, 2012 at 12:00 am
Your stomach may think it’s full, but your brain knows better. In the age old war of stomach versus brain, it’s hard to predict who will win. But it probably won’t be you.
Wombat Day is just a week away! Make your plans now to celebrate the most chocolatey day of the year! A chocolate Wombat Day cake is one of the best ways to join in on the fun, so prepare now for the party of the year! Get baking!
Discussion (211) ¬
So you got my cheque and winegums?
Your bribe was gladly accepted this time!
Sorry Androgoth, you will have to up your ante 😉 …..Hmm, maybe a chocolate spam pie?
I love a bidding war!
I thought that you might 🙂
Yes Loon and an extra large box of wine gums too, I hope it works? 😉
That sounds pretty tempting Andro, but I’ll have to wait and see if Loon offers a counter bid.
I am sure that she will Peter 🙂
I wonder how much I might get if I auctioned off Fraz?
I think you might get a pretty penny.
I hope it’s a 1943 copper-alloy penny.
Fraz could be more trouble than he’s worth…just saying 🙂
Ah, mind over matter. So is a wombat’s stomach half empty or half full?
All I know is my stomach is never full!
Here have another chocolate bun, it has triple choc and a large marshmallow on top 🙂
That was a nice after-breakfast snack!
I knew that you would appreciate that one Winky 🙂
I did really appreciate it! You wouldn’t happen to have another one, would you?
Are you starting the bidding war already Androgoth? Sheez, I better check my pantry…
I hope you have some yummy treats in there!
Today is my birthday and a big chocolate cake was presented after dinner. German chocolate made locally by a real old fashioned baker. My stomach is full too but I am already thinking of the big piece I will have with lunch tomorrow!
October 14? That’s my birthday, too. It’s hard to resist cake, even for us humans.
Not surprised we share the same birthday. An almost unfair percentage of the best and brightest were delivered to humanity on that day!
That’s what I always say, too! Though, strangely, no one seems to believe me.
Precisely. The best and brightest are often aware of facts that seem unbelievable to those not so fortunate as to have made their entrance on October 14th. Such an amazing and fortunate day for all of Humankind… and Wombykind too of course.
I couldn’t have said it better myself. It is unfortunate that others can’t appreciate the uniqueness of those born on October 14th, but the masses rarely understand such things.
Happy belated birthday, Peter.
Thank you, Red!
Happy Birthday Will 🙂 Don’t forget to bring your cake round to Wombania so that we can tuck in and eat it all 🙂
I’m always happy to help someone eat their birthday cake!
Yes and I bet Fraz will be joining us too 🙂
I can smell a birthday party from a couple of kilometers away!
Happy belated birthday, Will.
I am starting to learn all about you wombies 🙂
Winky always thinks of his stomach, Binky the smart one, Fraz the naughty one and Twinky the girly one.
Did I get that correct?
That’s pretty much it, Kurome. Plus Fraz is running for president!
Hi Kurome, how nice it is to see you here 🙂
The chocolate cake looks delicious…If I am not so busy with my school exam, I would make one myself 😉
Ups…why is Kroten’s face on my comment? 😉
Looks like Kurome was checking out your computer when you weren’t looking. 🙂
Yeah, sometimes those little guys forget to log out when they use your computer.
(I fixed it for you, Novroz.)
I have a few stinkers just like that. 😉
They all need to have their own netbooks or something to prevent such calamities.
Thank you Peter 🙂
Hi Deb are you getting
ready for Wombat Day 🙂
I certainly am, Andro! 🙂
Dink & Tink might be sad if you didn’t!
Don’t worry, I wouldn’t let them down.
I didn’t think you would!
A wombat chocolate cake is the most delicious cake you can have! Maybe you could have a cupcake on Wombat Day, Novroz.
You can call in here and have a virtual piece of cake anytime that you like Miss. Novia 🙂
Yeah, there’s always plenty of goodies for everyone here in Wombania! And especially on Wombat Day!
Yes i can hardly wait for Wombat Day 🙂
I’m a bit excited.
I am very excited, I wonder how much chocolate and Wombat cakes there will be? 🙂
As much as you can stuff into a day!
Good answer Winky, I am
ready to start stuffing 🙂
I hope you’ve trained your stomach for Wombat Day. I have!
Virtual cake sounds good..I can do that 😉
It also has much less calories!
Aw, Winky, I think that’s your taste buds vs. stomach, and we both know which wins that battle.
I can’t leave any cake uneaten! I think I need a bigger stomach!
You just keep packing the cake in there and it will automatically get bigger for ya. 😉
I do train a lot, so my stomach is a pretty good size already!
Good, then you won’t have any trouble chowing down this deluxe double chocolate chip chocolate cake I made you.
Nope! Thanks, Deb! The cake was delicious!
I’m not full yet deb 🙁
You weren’t here for the last cake or I would’ve shared it with you, Andro.
I won’t be late next time Winky 🙂
The early bird gets the cake!
I’ll remember to always leave extra with Winky of Fraz just for you. But you got cookies now so all is well. 🙂
And your cookies are the best!
I have lots of cookies tonight, Andro. I gave some to Winky, but I got another 10 lbs for you too!
Not if you have another cake to offer me, Deb!
I always come with goodies for you, Winky, and this time since we need to keep you satisfied all night I brought you 10 lbs of chocolate cookies for you night stand.
I’m going to be sleeping soundly tonight! A full belly always makes me sleepy!
That is a fine looking
Wombat cake Peter 🙂
Hey I wonder if Winky will ever be full enough not to always have another piece of cake? 🙂
The cake was from a few years ago. It didn’t last very long.
I doubt Winky would ever refuse another piece of cake.
Nooooo I thought that too 🙂
I like the Wombat cake and
could just try a bit, okay then
ALL of it I am getting as greedy
as winky and Fraz these days 🙂
Maybe you could go to your local Wombat bakery, and get them to bake you a Wombat Day cake!
That would be brilliant, but then again I could always have a go right here in my own kitchen 🙂
That would be good, too! Twink doesn’t let me bake any more after what happened last year.
You are too greedy in the kitchen Winky but don’t worry I will have a word with Twink and see what I can do 🙂
I hope she listens to you! She never listens to me!
I’ts a great day when your stomach is full but there is still more cake to have.
My stomach sometimes tells me it’s full, but it lies!
When is dingbat day?
I don’t know. When is your birthday? 😉
That is really funny Peter 🙂 lol
Isn’t the mirror the real enemy here? 🙂
Mirrors are always my enemy!
I don’t know, if you look in the mirror now you will see a plate of cookies behind you.
Oh boy! And just after that great chocolate chip cake you gave me!
You should get mirrors for your chocolate cabin. One big of on each wall so the chocolate will go on forever.
I sure wish that trick would work for real, and not just for reflections!
I knew you would. 😉
Maybe we can get Binky to work on it.
Sometimes the brain is 20 minutes behind. That’s why some folks are so fat. Just saying.
I have my post all set up for next Monday.
Have a terrific day. 🙂
I think my brain might be a little more than 20 minutes behind.
Thanks, Sandee, that’s great!
As long as their is cake left, then Winky is hungry.
I couldn’t have said it better myself!
We should celebrate. With cake!
Wombat Day !!!!!
I can’t bake 🙂 lol ……….. 🙂
but for sure will make Wombania something 🙂
an ode ?
i dunno …..:) lol
super cute cake ……….
Happy almost wombat DAY 🙂
and loved the halloween vid 🙂
well done 🙂
here is a super cute wombat 🙂
Have a great day a lllllllll
One week to Wombat Day and the countdown begins! The cake was from a few years ago.
An ode to wombats would be cool. All wombats are cute in our eyes, though not everyone agrees.
I think they are cute ………
so they cake still looks kinda tasty ! 🙂 even after a few years – yeah i will write a poem ……..:) on monday next 🙂 Cute ness …………..
The cake barely lasted long enough for a photograph. Too bad we couldn’t eat that!
A poem would be very nice!
cool facts – 🙂
“Slow to Digest: The wombat has a very slow metabolism, an adaptation to surviving in arid conditions. It takes about 14 days for the wombat to digest a typical meal.”
no wonder you guys are always hungry !!!!!!!! lol
Does that mean that in two weeks I’ll feel full? I can’t wait that long!
Are you going to share your cake with me Cat? 🙂 🙂 Mmmmmmmmmmm
Oh yeah and the band “The Wombats ”
they are becoming big – i think it’s because of You !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
🙂 ok listen to this – weird song ……
but their popularity is definitely because of the WOMBIES !
i think so xxoxo
I think it’s because of us, too!
We were supposed to be on their first album cover art (a Wombania comic strip), but I don’t know if we were or not. They were supposed to send us a copy but never did.
Seriously ……. wow ……
well was just checking Youtube and they have a ton of songs up there ………
let me find their channel –
It wasn’t going to be the whole cover art or anything, but just part of a collage as I understood it. I think it was their first album.
here is their channel ………
gotta go out but i will investigate later 🙂
I couldn’t find anything that showed their cover art or back of their albums. Might be out there somewhere, though.
Oh well ………… Wombania is much better than their music – 🙂 just my opinion 🙂
Thanks, Cat. But I sure wouldn’t mind their number of fans.
That cake looks scrumptious! My father used to use an expression when we’d take more food than we could eat. He’d say “Your eyes are bigger than your belly”. Not sure why I’m quoting that…I’m tired. 😛
Hey they say that in the UK too 🙂
My parents always used to say that, too. Though with “Stomach” instead. That doesn’t apply to any Wombie I know, however.
No… Well that is understandable 🙂
For a Wombie, it’s more like “Your stomach is bigger than your body!” Sort of a Doctor Who thing.
Ya and in India we say hey if you are not eating more than you can then you are not human lol
I’m not human, but I always eat more than I can!
My stomach has that problem but if I go against the stomach the brain makes me feel sick.
Getting excited about Wombat day this year!!! Can’tt wait to post my Wombat comic
Hey Tony we will be having fun looking at that one so don’t forget to mention it before you post so that I don’t miss out on your fine cartooning 🙂 I might even ask Twink to make you a special treat as a thank you 🙂 lol
I’m really looking forward to your Wombat Day cartoon, too. And so are all the Wombies!
I never have that problem, my stomack is bottomless Wnky
My stomach is pretty bottomless, too. But sometimes it gets confused and tries to tell me it’s full. I know better!
You are a cheese fiend Cedric everyone knows that 🙂
Cheesey fiend, cheesey fiend, most incredible cheesey fiend.
He’s eats cheese any size
Eats it mouldy or covered in flies
Look out here comes the cheesey fiend
You get all the cheese, and I get all the chocolate. We could make a good team!
Yes but what do I get Winky? 🙂
I’ll get all the chocolate, but I’ll share it with everyone! Well, maybe not the Zombies.
The perfect symbiotic relationship Winky.
Sounds good to me! Tastes good, too!
Now that is what I call cheese-extreme Cedric 🙁 As in flies on cheese, fleas on edam, crawlies on cheddar and rats on… Oh that is you, so rats on gorgonzola 🙂
My mom always said my eyes were bigger than my stomach, and they never seemed to get filled. 🙂
I know I never get filled! Especially when there’s more chocolate around to be eaten!
I always like extras too 🙂
There’s always room for cake! 😀
That’s for double sure!
Your brain fears no vomit!
Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeew did you have to say that so early James, some of us have delicate stomachs 🙁 Just kidding, bring it on…
I have a delicate stomach. Well, a cast iron delicate stomach.
You could drink chocolate vomit milkshakes and eat strawberry jelly brains all night you could Winky 🙂
I think I just stick with the regular Wombie treats!
When it comes to food i always listen to the second brain in my stomach which never says no to cakes and chocolates..
Yes well that I can believe Soma, you are nearly as greedy as Winky, Fraz and Me 😉
Soma is part Wombie like you, Andro.
I knew that 🙂 I wonder how much chocolate Soma can eat in one sitting, I know that you can eat chocolate for the whole of Wombania and I am catching you up a little too 🙂
Maybe you and Soma could have a chocolate eating contest on Wombat Day and we could find out!
oh bring it on I am a champion in my family and when i say family i mean people who eat chocolates like maniac and they say no one can beat me….yay i am a chocomaniac
That’ll be a good competition, then! I better stock up on chocolate for the contest. I wouldn’t want you two to run out!
I can never say no to cakes and chocolates either, Soma! I don’t know how anyone can.
I am so excited about the Wombie day..its just the best day of the year..and that cake is yummiliciouslifantabulouslibrilliantastic
Yes with a great big cherry on the end, nooo I meant on the end of your yummy word 🙂 Cheeky
Yeah, Wombat Day is going to be a good one this year!
It sure is 🙂
Too bad it couldn’t be Wombat Week!
Since i have joined Wombania every day is a wombat day or else i dont feel alive ..love you cute little guys 🙂
Aww, thanks, Soma! Every day is a pretty much a wombat day for me, too. And a chocolate day, too!
I’m the same way with Haribo Gummy Bears. The heartburn and sour stomach say to quit but I know better.
Sometimes our stomachs don’t know what they’re talking about!
Hahaha… with my cooking / baking skills I’m afraid my Wombie Day cake would convince both Winky’s stomach AND his brain they should pass.
I don’t know about that. I’ve never met a cake I couldn’t eat!
A very happy belated birthday!!!
I hope you had a wonderful day!!!
Thanks, Robert, I did.
Will there be a parade on Wombat Day? Or a picnic with lots of food? Rocky wants to know if he should dress up for it.
I never thought about a parade! We could march to chocolate! We’ll certainly have lots of food. It’s an all-you-can-eat-all-day-party! Rocky could dress up if he’d likes, but he doesn’t have to. Just make sure he brings his appetite!
Yes and a very big spoon 🙂
And a doggy bag!
OMG this cake looks so beautiful and yummy!!! So excited about Wombat Day. 🙂
It was pretty yummy! But then what cake isn’t? Only 6 days till Wombat Day!
Wow it’s nearly here already 🙂
Almost! I think I might have a mini Wombat Day tomorrow just to make sure I’ve thought of everything.
Ahahahhahh Winky, thank God I wasn’t drinking anything. I would have spit it all!!
Can I celebrate this mini WD also? I love your philosophy. “Carpe Diem”… just in case!
Of course, Cha! It’s always better to celebrate Wombat Day, even a mini one, with someone else! I’ve got plenty of chocolate and wine gums and cake!
Ohh the hardships I have myself with my brain and stomach.
It can be a pretty tough battle sometimes!
Yep thank goodness I have a pool open year round in my neighborhood. Otherwise I would get fat.
I’m glad I don’t have to worry about that!
I can so agree with that! I think I’m going to go get another 3 carb pop. Thanks for stopping by.
And I need to get another 3 cakes!
Man, that cake looks good.
It was! I need another one! Or two or three.
I agree, the cake really looks so yummy!
Drop by for Wombat Day! We’ll have a lot more yummy cakes!
Wow, yummy chocolate cake! I haven’t had one for…for weeks!
I envy Winky, he gets to eat cake even if he’s full.
I try to have cake at least once a day! It’s good to be me!
I’m back and that really makes me hungry…I haven’t had cake sincee…last night just before bed. Hope there is some left because we all know that cake is the breakfast of champions, right?
It is! It’s important to start the day off right. And what’s better than cake?
Cake with chocolate syrup on it.
That would be better! Maybe add some fudge, too. And ice cream!
There’s aways room for one more piece of cake.
There sure is!
The mind is a terrible thing to waist, Winky!
I’ll try not to let that go to my stomach!
Brain always knows better 😉
My brain certainly does!
ha-ha… that’s how my body works too!
Yeah, stomachs are dumb!
“And just for the back talk, stomach, I’m getting another slice after this!”
Another slice of cake always makes things better!
