For the love of... Come on people! It's candy!

In our steady tidal shift towards oblivion, death, and destruction (Cthulhu can't be far away now), there were bound to be a few moments when even the most enthusiastic of us riding the wave would smack our heads and say "Oh comon". Today is one of those days. The New Jersey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (that's New Jersey), has decided to raise it's objections to a candy. Yes, a candy. Why, you might ask.

Does the candy maker support a large badger crushing operation? No, oddly. Do all profits of the candy sales sponsor baby-seal-clubbing expeditions? No, although I like your way of thinking. No, the taboo this candy dares to market is... roadkill. Yep, the candy is shaped like roadkill, complete with tire tread marks. Now, how this is supposed to harm animals, I'm a little fuzzy on. Maybe Billy and Jane But-We're-Only-Eight will jack mom and dad's Expedition and go on a wild night of gummi-roadkill-animal-induced Vehicular Whack-A-Squirrel. I don't know, but the NJSPCA is threatening *gasp* a boycott. Yeah, good luck with that.

I'm pretty sure that, were I giving money to the NJSPCA, I'd rather they spend it elsewhere. You know, like helping the critters already in their possession.
