    Jelly beans -- Number please. :)

    Did you ever play (or enter a contest) for "guess the number of jelly beans" in a glass jug?  As you know, I like guessing games, and could never resist submitting a number if I had the chance.    

    If you have access to jelly beans over the weekend, you can have my share.  ;)     

    Not sure if there are any associated songs for jelly beans, eggs, or chocolate bunnies.   If you can come up with any, you win the jelly beans.

    I always did lousy in those guessing contests.

    The only way I can connect jelly beans to music is the story about George Harrison's unfortunate mentioning of the fact that the Beatles liked jelly beans.  Fans took note, and at a number of shows after this the Beatles were pelted with jelly beans.

     Here's a song from Johnny Cash- Dirty ol' egg sucking dog:

    I don't know any songs about Chocolate bunnies,but I do know one about a White Rabbit:

    And maybe partial credit for the Beatles "I am the walrus":

    I am the egg man,they are the egg man

    I am the Walrus,goo goo g'joob

    Considering what you do for a living, I would have thought you'd be pretty good at guessing anything to do with numbers.  :P   Then again, this is more probability, isn't it?   

    Never knew the Beatles got pelted with jelly beans.   What an odd piece of trivia.  Nice.

    I enjoy a good jelly bean,especially Jelly Belly brand jelly beans.They have a huge selection of different flavors.

    I thought I might share my new Easter tradition video for anyone who might be interested:

    Generally speaking, accountants don't like guessing numbers.  They love knowing numbers.
