AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'While at Lisa's (Andy's crush) birthday party, Andy and Danny play a game of "Chubby Bubbies", where they see who can fit the most marshmallows in their mouth without swallowing or spewing. For her birthday, Andy gave Lisa a book about finding your perfect match through palm reading. While Andy and Danny are playing "Chubby Bubbies", Lisa asks Andy if she can see his palm. After reading his palm, she confirms that he is her perfect match, and he must now kiss her. When Andy is just about to kiss her, he feels the urge to sneeze (with the marshmallows still in his mouth). He tries to fight the sneeze, but eventually loses to the sneeze and spews marshmallow paste on her cheek. After learning that he was playing "Chubby Bubbies", Lisa criticizes him for being immature, and telling him how big of a mouth he has. However, she tells him that it's not as big as hers, and with that, she sticks a marshmallow in her mouth and says, "One chubby bubbie."' (!)
