    Someone needs to try licking this to see if they got the flavours right.

    If that’s the UK edition, presumably the American was called ‘Opel Fruit’. Good luck getting this out of your heads.

    @Tat: not only is that earworm stuck, my brain has decided it is “offal fruit”. So much for working thru budget figures today… safer to just reorganize the pencil drawer…

    Have you ever been to one of those parties? Where you find yourself waking up half naked in the grass with no memory of where most of your clothes went to and a massive hangover? And while you’re trying to bury your face in the ground so the hellish sunlight doesn’t burn out your eyes, your boyfriend shows up and starts complaining that someone shaved his head and replaced his internal organs with 1970s electrical equipment while he was unconscious? Don’t you hate when that happens?

    Her dress, the ground, and the sky are OK for a Starburst ad, but his big grayness there is Inexplicably Non-Juicy.

    @ARY: They seem to have missed getting his skeleton in proper orientation though. Giant scoliosis.

    @JuanPaul: GSS.

    Someone should have thought twice about giving her an inexplicably rolled up dress the color of inflamed intestines when he’s got a hole in his stomach. This reads like the aftermath of a very strange accident.

    Insurance adjuster: “She says she was hit by what?”

    Androids don’t always dream of electric sheep.
