Just learned - if you freeze them, they crack easier after you freeze them for 24 hours. Let them thaw for a bit or you will lose a tooth.

Oh, and by the way - they're good for you.

I was waiting for a punch line. Something about a Brazilian wax job on one's naughty bits before surgery.
Mine were shaved for my sling surgery.
(It's just growing back and boy are they itchy! I'll bet they'd feel better if they were frozen. )

That does sound like a neat trick by the way.

- from the internet .... heard it years ago ....

A Social Worker visits an elderly lady once a week to check that she is OK. As she is about to leave the old lady asks the Social Worker “Do you like Brazil Nuts?”

“Oh yes” replies the Social Worker, and the old lady gives her a paper bag full of shelled Brazil Nuts – beautiful tasty white Brazil Nuts.

The following week the same thing happens again – the old lady gives the Social Worker a bag of Brazil Nuts, which she takes to work and shares with her colleagues. This goes on week after week.

One week the Social Worker asks: “If you don’t like Brazil Nuts, why do you keep buying them?”

The old lady replies: “My son buys them for me, but I have no teeth. So I just suck the chocolate and put them back in the bag”.

Brazil Nuts have long gone by another name here in the deep South USA, but it would appear racist to repeat it here.
