To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold a cookie in the palm of your hand.

Given that regular sand is inorganic, “organic sand” must be an euphemism for ground dried organic waste.

I suspect it came through French, in which “sablés” (sandy, which becomes sands if you remove the accent) is a type of biscuit (cookie on the other side of the pond).

There is no such thing as “organic” Silica. This is a Chemical impossiibility, and would require a revision of the Periodic Table.

The word translated as ‘sand’ here is 샌드 (saendŭ), apparently intended to be short for 샌드외치 (saendŭwich’i), “sandwich”. Obviously, a machine translator is not going to realize that the writer intended a (perhaps ‘trendy’?) spelling here.

“Sand” is totally understandable. Typically Japanese (and Korean?) problem with contracting “sandwich” in product packaging. So when I see “cream sand pie” on a package of creamed sandwiched crackers/cake confectionary I totally get used to it — although I’m not exactly a confectionary lover.

The Little Chef just realized some lyrics to a song.

Just one little grain of sand can change your life and ruin your plans
Undermine your house of love bring it tumbling down
One one one grain of sand
One one one grain of sand

Thank you Eddie Arnold for bumming out everyone in the world.

Revised periodically, the Periodic Table now includes irrational elements. Korean chemists have contributed several, including ‘organic sand’, with which they are able to produce the remarkable organic glass.

Home Alone is universal. John Candy, however, is an acquired taste, even for Americans. When exactly is the proper moment to have an intervention….
