The Washington Post has always been used to line bird cages and wrap fish, but even our harshest critics probably haven’t tried this one: putting its essence in a blender and hitting frappe.

Utah inventor Tom Dickson, who has generated a half-billion hits on YouTube with his series “Will It Blend?”, gave us his patented treatment. He was inspired by a recent interview he gave to The Post about the history of blenders.

To be clear, Dickson doesn’t blend up the paper itself. Instead, he drops in symbols of what we cover: from Sports, a Redskins helmet; from Politics, a donkey (Democrats) and an elephant (Republicans); from Food, a cupcake; and other sundry things.

So will it blend? Let’s go to the video.
