    Does the five second rule apply when I drop my sandwich in the cat box?

    Due to supply chain issues some parts of the country are increasing the 5 second rule to 10 seconds.

    Any dog I’ve ever owned would have been on top of it as it hit the floor — or grabbed it on its way down!

    As kids we used to “Kiss it up to god” to ‘cleanse’ candy we’d dropped on the floor and wanted to eat —but not in front of our parents.

    Scientific analysis of the 5 second rule. One important conclusion, cookies are more likely to be picked up off the floor and eaten as compared to broccoli. I could have told them that without a Phd. https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/what-does-science-say-about-five-second-rule-its-complicated-180960434/#:~:text=%E2%80%9CThe%20five%2Dsecond%20rule%20is,and%20gummy%20candy%20the%20least.

    In certain rooms, the rules do not apply. And, in certain rooms, they are strictly enforced. Sorta like our government.

    Looks like chocolate chip cookies, best NOT to let the dog have it!

    If my dog Max was still around, the 5-Second rule wouldn’t matter. A dropped cookie would never hit the floor.

    As long as they’re not chocolate chip cookies then Roscoe could have them.

    Earl and Rosco can both be “Good Boys” by sharing and kissing the cook. Only Rosco get to use tongue. Pucker up Earl. Snuggles on the couch for all.

    Wait. If said cookie fell onto, say, a cat vomit, would Earl still be munching it down even if he grabbed it up within the 5 seconds? Rosco has enough sense not to. I think, maybe he would though…

    I’m surprised he had time to get it before Roscoe did. Most dogs I know are quicker than that.

    With my dog, that cookie wouldn’t have had a chance to bounce, much less survive five seconds

    An old man who can beat a dog to food on a floor?

    Either call Guinness to get Earl in the book or take Roscoe to the Vet for a check-up.
