(But why do they just want to eat everything?)
Honey Bun likes to hang out in Chuck Roberts’s jewelry store. The customers think he’s quite a gem.
But Honey Bun has now developed a taste for the gems in the store. When Roberts wasn’t looking, the pooch devoured $10,000 worth of diamonds.
X-rays couldn’t locate the gems in the Buns tum (carbon doesn’t show up in X-rays), but next day, nature did its thing, and the diamonds are back where they belong – ready to be turned into earrings.
Honey Bun’s Dream Planet
Come to think of it, Honey Bun would love the newly-discovered planet in orbit around the neutron star PSR J1719-1438.
It would take the pooch a while to get there, since the planet is 4,000 light years from here. But if he ever made it all the way, he’d discover a real gem or a world – one that’s made entirely of diamonds.
Diamonds are high-compressed pure carbon, and this is a planet that’s been entirely compressed. Might be a bit heavy to turn into an earring, though.
