Father's fury over children's 'pornographic' sweet wrappers
As stupid as the guys complaint is, the wrappers can certainly be interpreted that way (if you have a dirty mind)
A father-of-two has spoken of his disgust after spotting fruity cartoon characters appearing to have sex on SWEET wrappers. Simon Simpkins was buying Haribo MAOAM sour candies for his children when he noticed the 'pornographic' illustrations of limes, lemons and cherries romping with each other. Mr Simpkins, of Pontefract, West Yorkshire, said: 'The lemon and lime are locked in what appears to be a carnal encounter.
Fruity: According to Mr Simpkins, the lime has a 'particularly lurid' expression on its face during its encounter with a lemon
Debauched: The lime enjoys a similarly smutty experience with a willing pair of cherries
'The lime, whom I assume to be the gentleman in this coupling, has a particularly lurid expression on his face.' He said: 'I demanded to see the shop manager and, during a heated exchange, my wife became quite distressed and had to sit down in the car park.' A spokesman for Haribo said the 'fun' packaging of the sweets was introduced in Germany 2002 and added: 'This jovial MAOAM man is very popular with fans, both young and old.'
