How many posts on the Café have pertained to the cups and balls since the Café started?

I've noticed that it comes up a lot in the history I'm curious if anyone has counted. Maybe it could be like guessing how many jelly beans are in a jar.

Its like "how many licks does it take to get to the tootsie roll center of a tootsie pop?"

The world may never know?!

I don't know about the cups and balls posts, but it takes 320 licks to get the the tootsie roll center of a tootsie pop.
Reality is a real killjoy.

The Café's search bar prior to this post indicated the term 'cups and balls' was found 24143 times. I'm sure in reality the number is considerably greater.

Was this a lab test?
If so was it double blind with a control tootsie pop?
Or is testing hundreds and averaging the results?
:)
I don't know if your old enough but that is a great commercial memory from childhood.

Wow that's a lot but you probably are right it's certainly more I'm sure. Thanks for the comments it was just an odd question I thought might be fun to ponder.
