A Lime-a-licious Countdown
Neopia is a great place, with lots of great things - especially lots of great
things to eat. There's the bakery with the oh-so-yummy fresh pastries, there's
the health food store, with carrots... and that's pretty much it, and then there's
Hubert's Hotdogs, too, which is always good on a day I decide to disregard fat
and calorie content all together. And although these all have very good food -
very, very good food - they all lack one crucial dietary necessity: lime!
Lime? Of course, lime! Everyone knows that you have to have your daily recommended
amount of lime in your diet! Wait... what? You don't know? You don't even know
what lime is? *Sigh* Lime is the delicious fantastic flavor that makes life
what it is! Lime! Doesn't it feel good just to say it? Lime is a motivation
booster, great for self confidence! And it tastes good too!
And so I will now, for you - the lime-less reader - and your benefit, count
down the top ten LIME! things in Neopia. Because how else will you be able to
step onto the road of recovery from life without lime?
NUMBER TEN: Lime
Yes, there's such thing as just a plain lime. Its kinda like a lemon, except...
well, it's a lime. And it's green. And it's kinda sour, even though, then again,
lemons are sour too. Even though limes are still cool and all, they're really
not the best just plain. I mean, sure, they make breakfasts on-the-go, but they
definitely aren't my personal favorite way to enjoy the awesome lime. But still...
it's just kinda cool to start out this countdown of lime with a lime itself...
NUMBER NINE: Lime Juice Carton
Here we go, a step up from just a lime. It's lime... but in a carton! And in
juice form! How cool is that? It's like, super cool. Cool. Because you can drink
it! You can take it with you! You can pack it in your pet's lunchbox. Or you
could just drink it. Or... you could probably eat it, too. The carton would
just be kinda crunchy. But it would taste like lime! So I don't blame you if
you wanna go ahead and just eat the whole thing. I've done it once or twice
too. At least.
NUMBER EIGHT: Lime Slushie
Aha, now we are getting somewhere. Lime slushies are perfect on a summer day...
or a fall day, a winter day, a spring day, a cold day, a hot day, a wet day,
a dry day, a long day, a short day, a hyper day, a sleepy day, a lime day, a
boring day, a lime day, a fun day, a lime day, a different lime day... pretty
much any day is great for lime! Lime slushies just taste... good. They're limey.
Lime-a-licious. And they're cold. And they give you brain freezes if you drink
the whole thing in one sip, which is really easy to do, since they're so darn
NUMBER SEVEN: Lime Jelly
It's squishy! And everyone knows that any food that is squishy is good, regardless
of what it tastes like. And not only is it jelly, but it's LIME jelly! Lime
and jelly, together. That is simply awesome. Plus, it has tons of uses. Like...
it makes a really cool shampoo. And it makes a really good peanut butter and
lime jelly sandwich.
NUMBER SIX: Hot Lime Jelly
Okay, so this has all the joys of lime jelly, plus it's hot! Which makes it
really interesting to eat. It's squishy, and hot, and limey... all at the same
time! And it bounces when you jiggle it! So it makes a great meal, shampoo,
sandwich, and awesome entertainment for someone who is amused easily. And they're
plenty of easily amused people in Neopia, trust me.
NUMBER FIVE: Lime Neodrops
First, let me establish that Neodrops are the best candy in Neopia. Ever. And
what have we learned happens when you combine something already awesomely good
with lime? MAGIC! Or... close to that. You get something that tastes really
good. These Neodrops... melt on your tongue. Something like that. And they stick
to the roof of your mouth for the rest of the day, so you keep that delectable
lime taste with you all day long!
NUMBER FOUR: Funky Lime Table
Maybe it isn't food... but it's cool. It's a... table! And it has the word
lime in its name. Although it isn't edible, it might as well be. It's a table
that has the wonderful COLOR lime. It's my favorite piece of furniture, and
I like to keep one in every room of my Neopia. It's so pretty! And better yet,
if you lick it, it actually tastes a teeny bit like lime! Sorta!
NUMBER THREE: Lime Gummy Slorg
Slorgs are such adorable petpets! I mean, they leave really awesome trails
of slime, so by default they're cool. And gummy stuff is really neat. Because
it's sugary, and chewy, and gummy, and yummy, and just... cool. And it's so
cute! And it tastes like lime, so duh, it's good. Did you always dream of having
a Slorg as a petpet? Well, now you can get the next best thing, a gummy LIME
flavored Slorg that you can EAT... and you don't have to clean up after it.
NUMBER TWO: Sour Lime Pizza
Pizza is the best fatty artery-clogging food around, so NATURALLY, any pizza
that has lime is automatically dubbed the coolest pizza for all of time. And
it's really very good, too. It's covered with lime slices! And it's a *tad*
bit sour, but since when has that ever been a problem for the experienced lime
NUMBER ONE: Lime Sorbet
Lime sorbet is the best thing in Neopia. It's the best thing in the world.
It's just simply the best thing ever. It's better than chocolate. It's better
than any other lime thing. It's just magically super fantastically awesomely
incredible. It's like ice cream... only better. And lime... only better. COMBINED!
And it's not just a dessert; there is nothing wrong with having it for breakfast,
lunch, dinner, mid-morning snack, afternoon snack, midnight snack... or any
moment in time when you actually can get your hands on it. Lime sorbet is just
cool like that.
So have you been educated on lime? Have you channeled your inner lime? You
have? Oh, thank Fyora! I knew you weren't a hopeless cause. But wait a minute...
what are you still doing here? Why are you still reading? You've discovered
lime, you fool! Go out into the world and experience it... experience the magic
of the lime! Spread your knowledge throughout the lands, so that one day, Neopians
large and small can come together to cherish a common love: LIME!
