Crumb Test Dummy

British biscuit ('cookie' for you soccer fans) maker and research center Mcvitie's has found the solution for age old problem of measuring how many crumbs are produced while eating a cookie.

Although many children might dream of one day becoming a professional biscuit eater, it turns out that people actually cannot keep up on the volume of cookies needed to be tested.

This new lab assistant can eat bisuits all day long but never puke. That's because he is a robot.

"Eating lots of biscuits is obviously an enjoyable prospect for most people but we haven't yet found a human who can test on this scale," Mcvitie's brand manager Liz Ashdown added.

"The Crumb Test Dummy has a never-ending appetite and doesn't need to stop for breath."

They should have made the body look really fat. That would have been funnier.
