Latest article of pure hilarity is this one.
Just from reading the headline "Haribo MAOAM sour candies feature 'fruits in pornographic poses' ", you know it's going to be a good story.
So basically, a bunch of sooky whiners are complaining to lolly making company Haribo, saying that their 'Maoam' product features, well, there's really no easy way to say this, basically, it apparently features different fruits getting it on with one another, engaging in sexual intercourse, making babies/baby fruit, sleeping together.. etc etc. I would go further but this is a PG RATED BLOG of course.
The main guy having a massive complain about this said "The lemon and lime are locked in what appears to be a carnal encounter."
Okay, really, who looks *that* closely into something as trivial as this?! I also like the usage of the phrase "carnal encounter". It adds some class to the whole debacle.
Another quote; "The lime, whom I assume to be the gentleman in this coupling, has a particularly lurid expression on his face."
More classy words 'gentleman' and 'lurid'. He could have said 'dude' and 'raunchy'. (If you look at the photo of the lime.. I don't really think 'lurid' is the correct word to be using anyway!)
But, the best best best quote of all: "I demanded to see the shop manager and, during a heated exchange, my wife became quite distressed and had to sit down in the car park."
I'm sure he means his wife was distressed about the argument but for the purposes of humour, let's say she was distressed from seeing the images on the lolly packaging. I'm sure his wife knows what sex is, has had sex and obviously isn't against sex because she has two kids and I bet she didn't get them in two go's!"
I really don't see what the big deal is. I think it's like anything, if you don't like it, don't pay attention to it.
Anyone over 18 should be mature enough to laugh it off, and most young kids won't associate it with sex and be like "Ohhh sex is so cool, even fruit characters are doing it!". They are more likely to give that reaction after watching any filmclip on MTV.
Here are the "pornographic" images.
Let me know what you guys think.. G Rated or XXXX Rated?
Also, just putting it out there. Judging by the pictures, the lime seems to be getting A LOT of action :)
