You Know That Big Bag Of Dum Dums I Got For My Birthday This Month?

I'd give it an 89. It has a good beat and it's easy to dance with.

I love the new flavors. I was getting kind of tired of the same ol' same ol'. Like cherry and strawberry, root beer and butterscotch. Not that there's anything wrong with these. Just that I sometimes am in the mood for something new in my suckers.

That's why I was so surprised with this bag. There are new flavors. I like the new coconut-pineapple, banana, cotton candy, bubble gum, chocolate, and cherry cola.

However, there are a few that either need left out of the next bag, or need a major overhaul.

I'm talking about...
"Cole slaw"
"Colby cheese"

"Squirrel soup"
"Kielbasa". Wait a minute, this one wasn't too bad.
"Deviled Egg"

Try them. You'll see what I mean.

Old Fashioned Cream Soda!

Anchovis belong on pizza, or in salad, not on a stick.

Quipper said...


Marie is wrong. Anchovies deserve a chance to live a full life. :-)

Does your list mean you liked the beer battered shrimp lollipops?

Scottius Maximus said...


I never had anchovies in a salad.

But what if they came up with anchovie pizza salad on a sucker stick?


Why do anchovies deserve to live a full life? Are they inherently good? Sounds awful close to un-Lutheran theology.

The Dum Dum people must have left the shrimp one out of my bag!

I don't like the new flavors in that bag of yours. I liked all the old stuff just fine and now it's all messed up. I'd give it a 50-55.

Scottius Maximus said...


If you don't like the flavors, then how come my bag is half gone?

Maybe Luuuuucy's got some 'splainin to do? ;)

Scottius Maximus said...


Of course! You're right. The answer was there and I just didn't see it. Thanks.

I'll sift through her hair for sticks later today.

I've been picking out the old flavors. I have tried a few of the new ones... once.. namely, banana (meh), cherry cola (blah), and cotton candy (okay). They need a blueberry flavor in there. A fig newton flavor might be nice too. My favorite flavors in your bag are cherry, sour apple, cream soda, and grape.

Truth be told, I'm more of a Tootsie Pop man. Me and Uncle Kojak. My favorite all time is the lemon flavored Tootsie Pop. A rare delicacy to be treasured when happened upon.

Or, as Luce might say, a rare delicatessen.

I must admit that I tend to fish for the coconut-pineapple....yum!

Scottius Maximus said...


How ah ya?!

Fishing is something we all do although few admit to doing it.

Alright, Lucy does have some 'splainin' to do! So does Sam!! I
found him chomping on a stick this 'mornin! He was eating a "Garfield"!:)

Now I know WHY you were going through my hair Chimpie! :)
