ctrl alt delete the black licorice

Here's another way to get unwanted crap in your body. Eat Lucky Country Aussie Style Soft Gourmet Black Licorice *. Not only will it keep you regular, but it'll increase your lead levels. You can buy Aussie Style Licorice at Walmart, CostCo, Whole Foods, Bed, Bath, and Beyond...well pretty much everywhere they sell products tainted with deadly toxins. Exactly how lead ends up in black licorice is anyone's guess. Here's a wild one. "The Aussies had a few tons of lead waste they needed to ship overseas and America seemed a good a place as any?"

We love black licorice but can't remember buying any of this brand and if we had purchased some of it, we would have Homer Simpsoned it long ago. YUMMMHMMMM. Licorice! We did buy some gourmet Norwegian black licorice many months back at a gourmet store in Milwaukee. All I can say is that it's made with real sea salt. Lot's of it! We still have our bag because, although it may be lead-free, it tastes like a dog biscuit. It (not the dog biscuit) might be good if you have the flu or something, but we're not entirely sure of the point of this candy except perhaps to torture folks held in the cargo hold of a sailing vessel.
