When a lime "mentors" a lemon

Here are some candy wrappers that so outraged a British dad that he got into a screaming match with a store manager, and his wife "had to sit down in the car park."

Guess there isn't an "Extra Virgin" category for candy. Maybe that's a business opportunity.

I can hear Bill Hicks now: "Hey, you the one buying all the 'hairy bobbin' fruit-ass' candies?"

Geez, what a sour puss.

At the risk of being flamed, can anyone provide an alternate explanation? Tickling? European football? Eton-style frivolity?

C.O.: Alternative explanation from a friend of mine is "Meh, they're German. Have you *seen* what's on German magazine covers?"

I don't see the outrage, personally. If the kids get the joke, then that horse is out of the barn. If they don't, then what's the problem?

(I suspect the man's wife had to sit down in the car park due to embarrassment at her husband's tantrum.)

I am surprised you haven't used your Photoshop skills to render these candy wrappers with the images of our local mentor and mentee. ("mentee", that's a word, eh?)
