Snap! Crackle! Slug! Rice Krispies!

I also love the article's first sentence. How often does one drop one's favo(u)rite snack in horror?

Man, I thought there would be a peeps joke or two in the article.

It's amazing what you find in food packages these days. While sometimes acceptable, I always find myself double-checking my Charleston Chews for worms (found them on many an occasion...most people don't notice them however) The FDA does spend a good amount of time looking for these things...although, I say..screw it! We're only bugged out because we have that "you are what you eat" complex in today's society. Let's adopt the occasional slug with our Rice Crispie Treats...let's act surprised by it in the same manner as when you get a lime Nerd in your box of oranges, "oh neat!" Is that really too much to ask?

So . . . you . . . you . . . hrm . . . you keep buying them?

[whimper] This might be enough to make me break down today.

"yes."

no way. I get tons of them during the candy-giving holidays (holloween, easter, etc)

btw, I was joking...I don't want to see bugs either. Did you know that the eggs are usually in there though?

The slug's body was stretched and its head buried in chocolate.

Funny, that's how I want to die, too.

That's going to take a lot of Rice Krispies, cCranium.
