First there was the crazy five pound gummy bear and now we find something considerably grosser. Our own Weatherman, commenter extraordinaire, created – wait for it – a huge, disgusting Swedish Fish.
Good lord. He describes it thus:
I thought you’d appreciate these pics of a 6lb Swedish Fish that I made about a year ago for my sister’s birthday. To make the fish we melted down two 3lb bags of gummi bears, separated by color, then poured them into a fish-shaped serving dish. We poured them in different layers so that we could get the most accurate, life-like red salmon coloration. We then gave the fish that characteristic Swedish Fish coating with some powdered and granulated sugar.
Six pounds! Granulated sugar! Fish-shaped serving dish! It sounds like a CSI episode gone wrong! The sheer fact, however, that a man would make a 6 pound Swedish Fish for his sister is a testament to that mans pereseverence against iniquity and lack of understanding of the boundries of brotherly love.
Obviously the normal reaction to this is disgust and horror, but Weatherman is a good man and he and his family will survive this ordeal. I only pray that no one ate this thing.
