Answer to Monday's Riddle: Great Gobs of Goo!

Excellent guessing, Riddlers! This week, we're slinging slime. Friday, we'll dive into a story for National Read Across America Day, so stay tuned! See you all around the book block. ; ) ~ F

Here's a recipe for fun! Mix three ingredients into one: 
First, thicken the pot with maize; a substance that stirs up a craze. 
Then, drop two H's and an O; the concoction's almost ready to go. 
Lastly, spill color into the brew, whichever you'd like- red, green or blue! 
A Newtonian rebel you shall be, breaking rules of viscosity.

What am I referring to? Answer: Oobleck
