A Moment of Silence

Rescue operations have been completed, and the site has been restored to an eerie duplication of the original. Those unaware of the incident remain in ignorance of the surprisingly small death toll. Those who participated in the triage will be forever changed.

A listing of the lost:

1 Sqwigglies
1 Whoppers
2 Raisinettes
1 Goobers
2 Kit Kat Bites
1 Mike 'n Ike Original Fruits
4 Kit Kat Big Kat Bars

There was, tragically, a high proportion of chocolate-related casualties which cannot be explained by shelf position alone, and conspiracy theories have already started to arise. One rescue worker was even overheard to complain bitterly that there were no Sour Patch Kids among the victims...

Another paper done, a little bit of sanity lost! I am right there with you. Got a deadline coming up myself. Have I finished? No! I've got so much adrenaline going through my body, I can barely sit still. Damn this thing they call "education" !

Well, you crack me up too, Chris.

I declare, here before allya'll, that if I had been helping the clean-up, there wouldn't have been ANY chocolate! Well, except if there was any coconut in it. That woulda survived.

Ith - 10 lashes for making chocolate-related puns at this tragic moment in candy history.
