Abstract: Subject responses are investigated to antemeridial comestibles in the 510 nm range. Verbal responses was elicited by a hobbit companion on a sample of size n=1. Aversive reactions were reproduced for a wide variety of environmental scenarios, including: cuboid containment, vulpine proximity, domestic setting, liquid precipitation, and locomotive transport. However, the results are contraindicated by a singular yet strongly outlying data point at the end of testing.
In case it's not clear, this is a riddle in a fanciful frame. This is not an actual doctoral thesis.
