A Ton of Food (9072 lbs. to be exact)

by angel_gyrl4elephants

NeoPets seem to stay pretty healthy if you feed them the right foods, like broccoli and cabbage... don't you think so? You may agree, but have you ever noticed how MUCH a NeoPet eats? For instance my NeoPet CheerfulStar eats in a normal meal about six to eight courses (In a normal meal I mean from when he is hungry to bloated).

First off I like to start with appetisers, as most people do. So I usually feed him a faerie fruit salad. Next comes some kind of hunger quencher until the rest of the food is prepared the normal would be French baguette. Everybody needs something to drink so I give him a neocola or apple juice.

Now comes the first main meal (yes, there's actually two main meals!!) It differs a lot but I like to serve him something like barbecue wings or chicken tenders, along with that comes so onion rings or fries. Now the second main meal tones it down a bit and is healthier. The usual is sushi rolls with a side order of baby tomatoes and mushrooms. Next comes CheerfulStar's favourite part, as is all Neopian's favourite part of the meal! Dessert!

Now this has A LOT of varieties because CheerfulStar LOVES desserts! But something sweet is ALWAYS in order! He likes to start of with something rich and then go to something subtler. So first comes maybe a piece of chocolate covered peanut butter and then perhaps a blueberry faerie bubble! Last comes a Thornberry Java with Cream to wash it all down! That's eight courses!!! Sometimes he will eat a little less or a little more.

But that's not the only thing I have to say! Along with eating eight courses, the helpings of the food NeoPets eat are TREMENDOUS! Most of the foods have a serving size of 1-3 POUNDS, and also the greedy Skeiths in Neopia will eat petpets or even dubloons!!! These items (at least to Skeiths) have the weight of 1-5 pounds!

So let's say that my NeoPet CheerfulStar was to eat a seven course meal where five of the dishes were 1 pound and the other two were 2 pounds. That means that my NeoPet eats 9 POUNDS of food for ONE meal! Now multiply 9x3 and you get 27 pounds of food eaten by one NeoPet every day! Now multiply 27x4 (I have 4 NeoPets) and you get 108 POUNDS of food eaten in ONE day by FOUR NeoPets!!!! Now let's times 27x7= 189 POUNDS of food eaten by FOUR NeoPets in ONE WEEK!!!!! Multiple 189 by 4 and you get 756 POUNDS of food eaten by FOUR NeoPets in ONE MONTH! Now for the last multiplication problem of the day 756x12 equals the grand total of... 9072 POUNDS of food eaten by FOUR NeoPets in ONE YEAR!

In conclusion I am TOTALLY surprised that there isn't world hunger in Neopia! I hope you take this seriously! Neomail me at angel_gyrl4elephants to correct any multiplication errors (although I don't think there are any). Happy gorging!
