What the...???

My family has some strange conversations. My kids have all got a slightly odd sense of humour and amazing imaginations...

A colleague of mine was recently in South America, and brought a big box of chocolates back with her for me - a "thank you" for covering some of her classes while she was away. Rather than scoffing the lot at work, I took them home.

A couple of days later, as the last of the chocolates disappeared, Mrs RC commented that she liked them - somehow she had lost 4 pounds while eating them! Miracle weight-loss chocolate!

Then it started:

Maybe they had some nasty tropical disease in them, and you are going to waste away!

Perhaps the crunchy bits were eggs and you have now got parasites living in your intestines!

Or spiders of some sort!

Or a monster!

You might have something like Alien in you that is going to burst out of your stomach!

Or an illegal immigrant!!


There could be illegal immigrants in there, waiting to burst out. That would be a great way to beat the Border Police!

Should we all be certified?

lol - ah, I love when conversations take odd turns like that! :)

terri said...

Certified? No! Just come to my house. You'll all fit right in!

Who cares what's in 'em? Weight-loss chocolate that is actually edible. Find out where the stuff came from, import it and sell it as "WEIGHT LOSS CHOCOLATE THAT TASTES GOOD"

Do you have any idea how much money that is worth?

Zig - Happens a lot in my house...

Terri - Had a funny feeling we might!

wigsf - AHA! My fortune is made!

Weight-loss chocolate? Sounds good to me.

Sounds like the weight loss chocolate goes right along with your Lentil & Lamb Curry diet.

Insects, larvae, human parts etc do exist in a bar of chocolate. Really. The insects et spawns were grounded up during the process (cocoa beans do sometimes contain them).
About the body parts... well, accidents do happen in any factory. :)
