** A Welcome to Blog Exclusive ** An Interview With Joey Berry, the Discoverer of the Sloth Popcorn Kernel

Joey Berry was a mild-mannered computer guru until fate intervened. After discovering a popcorn kernel that resembles Sloth (see below), the Baby Ruth-lovin' giant from The Goonies, he put it up for sale on eBay. Now he's popping up on Dallas radio and the kernel may earn him a three-story tall stack of dollar bills. Earlier this week Joey agreed to answer a few questions in an exclusive Welcome to Blog interview.


W2B: So how did you discover the Sloth Popcorn kernel?

JOEY: I was eating popcorn that was just made at work. When I was about to eat the last handful Sloth was staring right at me. I had to keep it.

Has it drawn Goonies worshippers to your house ala the Virgin Mary watermark in Chicago? If so, are they camped out on your lawn? Have they left candles and flowers all over the place?

Nothing like the [watermark] at all. If this happens, trust me. I will let you know and the local authorities!

What finally convinced you to part with the kernel on eBay?

I just knew a longtime Goonies fan, popcorn or art lover would enjoy this more than me.

Is this the first time you've discovered a food item that resembles a character from an '80s children’s movie?

Yes, I would have to say this is a first.

What's your response to critics that say the kernel looks more like Slimer from Ghostbusters than Sloth?

Hey, a little constructive criticism never hurt anyone. In fact, I feel it's good for everyone. I do feel the kernel looks a lot more like Sloth than the cheese toast looked like the Virgin Mary. However, I never see anything in those 3-D pictures so go figure.

Do you think you'll be able to sell the kernel for $28,000, the same price that the Virgin Mary toast eventually netted?

Only time will tell on this one.





The auction page can be found here. The current highest bid stands at $20.50.
