Happy Trafficking!

This looks like a urine test gone bad.

First you find someone with diabetes, then you find an alien.

LOL...!!

The red looks a little like blood so maybe the 'bizarrists' could come up with something.. possibly the change from green to red.

Plant / alien to human?... seems like a lot of effort though..

Going the OTHER way...

Start with green bug juice... nobody wants any, so cover and wait.

Then it becomes Red bug juice ( remember, it was not touched ;) )

Then it becomes lemonade...

There is something kids can relate to.

And the magic happens WITHOUT you touching the 'Pitcher'

Okay, how nasty is this stuff. Could you safely shake it to Green, and POUR it into a pitcher?

I like the pitcher idea.. It would be something kids would like but I can't think of anything an adult would find amusing.. It is very visual however.. maybe for a convention on traffic safety?

Yeah, I don't think you'd want to let kids drink that. I'm sure if you ingested it, it would burn your mouth and throat. If you breathe it in it can burn your lungs, and your skin. Fun stuff huh? I do like the traffic safety idea though.

NOBODY is suggesting breathing or even pouring the stuff. The question is can the stuff be shaken to red and THEN poured into a pitcher for display?

Hmmm, I don't know how I got that out of your post. I was probably tired when I read it.

I imagine it can be. It would probably be turned to green in the process because of the mixing the pouring would cause and the exposure to oxygen. The shaking seems to be the thing which mixes the chemicals and changes them colors. Then they would change back to red and then yellow.
