APPALLED WITH TWO P'S
On my way home from work yesterday, I stopped at the store to buy Frosted Flakes and mail my write-in ballot, and while I was there I grabbed a cucumber and some watermelon, and a carton of milk and then I saw a Pettson & Findus children's magazine with a free Findus mousepad on it, so I took 2 of those, and why is it I can't just go in a store and buy the one thing I stopped there to get? And to top things off, I found the most unbelievably sexist crap in the candy aisle, you're not even going to believe this.

I still can't decide whether I'm amused or appalled or both, and if both, to what degree.

Sillykoner

This is the illustration on the front of a bag of gummi candies shaped like breasts. It's marketed by a company called BonBon from Denmark, the ones that apparently run BonBonLand, but I couldn't find much information about this particular candy on their website, although they claim to manufacture "the funniest candy in the world."

Uh huh. Funny.

Very funny.

A bag of tit-shaped candy called Sillykoner (ho ho, get it? Silicon!) with pieces individually, or rather pairedly, named melons, onions, missiles, and balloons, as well as, for whatever weird reason, one shaped like a nose. HAW HAW! Stop! You're killing me!

Strange that there were no bags of PENIS-SHAPED candy. Now, THAT would have been funny!

Apparently, I AM still American where it counts, because appalled is winning.

I am not amused.
