Rerpsing, as defined by Alhucema, is the act of chewing away the outer layer of a carrot to get to the sweet inner core. I used to do something similar to, but not the same as, rerpsing, which I'll call rarpsing. What is rarpsing?

Does it have to do with chewing? with removing layers? With food? Vegetables? Is it licking the center out of oreo (or similar) cookies? Is it sucking on a chewing gum until the layer of tastiness is gone, and only the gum center remains?

When I was very young, I would eat the crispy skin of chicken mcnuggets, and leave the mushy meat behind. Anything like this?

At any point while rarpsing, does one have the whole carrot in his/her mouth? Does one actually eat the carrot while rarpsing? Or just chew it and spit it out?

Does one rerps with a fresh, garden-grown carrot? A store-bought one? Frozen? Cooked? Any type?

Oops, I typed "rerps" instead of "rarps" in the last post.

Does rarpsing involve biting the carrot rapidly and quickly, just penetrating the outer layer with the teeth, sort of like a bunny would eat it?

So rarpsing is eating the carrot, from the side, around the carrot?

Does one eat it from thick end to thin? The reverse?

Does one constantly wear down the very center of the carrot, so there is a really thin section in the middle?

Does one continue to wear the carrot down to its very core? Then eat that last?

Does one continue to wear the carrot down to its very core? /b{Yes.} Then eat that last? Yes. Why?

(Hopefully you are visualizing the same thing as me; you may not, though, in which case you might have an FA.

Is watching "Whose Line" reruns an excuse? Otherwise, no, I don't.

Does one start somewhere in the middle of, but not in the exact middle, of, the carrot? Nearer to the thick end? The thin one?

Does one create the waist:

-From the starting point, down the thin end, and then to the end of the thick end?
-From the starting point, to the thick end, then from the starting point down the thin end?

"Waist": a better word for what I'm saying would be "core". Sorry.

Re-writing last post:


Does one create the core:

-From the starting point, down the thin end, and then to the end of the thick end?
-From the starting point, to the thick end, then from the starting point down the thin end?
-Randomly, but always starting at the same point?

Is the width not the thickness but the amount of carrot length covered by the waist important? less or more than an inch?

Are you trying to make the carrot flexible in the middle? So that you can bend it? Use it as a pendulum? Or carrot nunchuck? Is the point to make it look like something else?

I know you meant core. What do you mean, "Down the thin end?" The carrot is not eaten lengthwise.

Is the width not the thickness but the amount of carrot length covered by the waist important? Yes. less or more than an inch? About an inch.

Are you trying to make the carrot flexible in the middle? No, but you're getting closer. So that you can bend it? Again, getting close. Use it as a pendulum? No. Or carrot nunchuck? No. Is the point to make it look like something else? Yes!

"Down the thin end": the core is created at the starting point, then gradually towards the pointy end.

Does one only create the core at the one point? At multiple points? Are

Oops, posted before I was done.

Are the specific points on the carrot important? Does one eventually make the entire carrot into a core?

So, let me see if I've got this right so far:

You rarps by nibbling a "core" into the carrot near the thick end. This shapes the carrot like a tree, but not a Christmas tree, although the thin end is the top of the tree.

Is the thick end another plant? Another...something?

Does one only do this with one carrot? Or with one at a time, so as to make a little garden out of the "carrot-trees"?

Is the thick end supposed to be a base of the tree? So it can stand up? The roots?

As a child, I used to eat carrots as follows: I would visualize the carrot as a tree and chew around its wider (lower) end, exposing and thinning the core. What does this resemble?

SPOILER!

I noticed as a child that carrots were shaped roughly like tree trunks, and liked to eat them as though I were a beaver, gnawing into and eventually cutting down the "tree." Google-image "beaver" and "tree" to see examples of the resulting shape.
