As I recall drbbq posted about the big price difference between two of the sizes of green eggs, and his question I think was since there was only an inch difference in grid size, what was all that extra money gettin' him, to what I responded with the fine post below...sometimes I even skare mineself.

hmm..thats a trick question Im sure..and I been givin it a lot of thought..I think you gotta think about them pie squared things..you know..that weird math where you got lettas AND numbas..now the question I think is..if I had jus one more inch..will it really make a difference..the way I see it...first lets spose you love makin pies on your grill and you got the grill what had the extra inch bigger..and you make them pies real big..as big as your grill is round..now..the only way you is gonna get pie squares is if you cut a pie up normally like them little teepee shapes..and one of them gets a hair right in the end near the crust..now you realize..bein as smart as you are..nobody wants that piece of pie..and since you wanna please everybody..you cut the fat end off of that one pie piece an you keep it for yourself..and your sad on accounta its so small..but you want all the other folks to be happy..so you make the sacrifice..and then you give out all the rest of them teepee shaped pie pieces to all the other folks what didn't want the hairy piece..you keep the hairy piece for yourself..so folk don't get mad they ain't got a full piece of pie..now if'n you did your cuttin rite..dependin on how that hair landed..you prolly got an even square of pie left..so that's pie r squared..see..now lets supposed you had a grill what was one inch smaller..well there's a chance that with the smaller grill..and seein as how you get less pie..cause the grill is smaller.but you got the same amount of people...even if a hair fell on any piece of that pie..since you love pie so much..and you figgure there ain't enough to go around..cause your grill is that much smaller..when nobody is lookin..cause of some fine diversion you done made..you scrape that hair off of the pie..and split it up normally..and nobodoy would no a thing..so that's it..there's your answer..if'n you had one more inch..chances of you gettin more hairpie is greater..god I love that new math..
