Gummy Bear Rampage

Gummy Bears! Who doesn't just love those tasty little gummy tasty, things? Gummy bears are so awesome that they come in diabetic versions cause not even the people who could die from gummy bears could ever REALLY stay way from those fun little creatures.

What other candy can you play with like you're five and people go "Oh, he's just eating Gummy Bears"? I think very few. Could you stack Buegles at work and not get "the look"? I think not! But you could play gummy bear science experiment and end up having people join you at your table, provided you shared raw specimens and not the ones you fused together.

Upon a quick Google search for gummy bear images there has been a shocking discovery. Gummy bears are "legally forbidden by Islamic law." Why? Because they are made with pork fat/gelatin. However I am sure one could find gummy bears that didn't have pork fat/gelatin. They'd be very expensive, though.

Curtosy of S. Weasel
"Gummy bears are a pork product! Yes, it’s true! The Germanians render pigs into sweeties! That’s where the distinctive gumminess comes from. I hate the damn things, myself, but now that I know the act of eating them is haram…"
Haram @ Wikipedia

That's an interesting side-note, don't you think? But back to the topic at hand, the gummy bear and what it means to Solve Unamusement.

Bogeyman Continued

The post from yesterday, yesterday for you but only a couple of moments for me, about the magic that is "The Bogeyman" was brought on by a movie with an aptly named title. Think really horribly-awesome grade-z film with a dash of really bad CG at the very end of it.

Bogeyman and Bogeyman Two are, to say the least, comical if not by accident. Then again, most horror films are somehow accidentally comical in one manner or another. Out of the two, the second is most fun but only because it is ground more on reality than some Scottish Fairy turned Swartzenager.

For both films movie trailers, see below.
