Covalent writes "Scientists suggest that the early universe could be better understood by considering its viscosity which, as it turns out, was similar to that of chocolate syrup. Researchers claim to be able to use this approach (along with as yet unavailable measurements) to determine precisely how inflation took place in the instants after the Big Bang.

Green cheese, the Milky Way... Now chocolate syrup. The universe is a complicated but delicious place!"

    They seem to be saying that the matter in the early universe, from which everything else formed, was like chocolate syrup. Therefore we can conclude that green cheese, the Milky Way, the moon, the primordial stew, pea soup fog and anything else made of food was originally chocolate syrup. It seems to be the most fundamental part of the FSM's recipe for his creation, but to be fair he was very drunk when he concocted it.

      Well, it certainly explains the large amount of dark matter in the universe: Chocolate syrup is dark.

        Hmmm ... why is that one at -1, and the one over there [soylentnews.org] which basically makes the same joke (and was posted later) at +3?
