("Mill Farm" Gummie Lighthouses)
By now you have probably seen this amusing photo that has been floating all over the blogosphere, of the unintentionally anatomical candy. But, is this a real photo? Are Mill Farm employees hopelessly naive and inattentive? Although the packaging looks familiar, like something that might be available at a discount store, there is no web reference to a Mill Farm brand. There is a company that sells gummie lighthouses, but not this particular brand. The caption of the photo on the original site links to a "sign generator website" implying that the photo is computer generated, not of a real product. But, you wouldn't get that impression from the many blogs reproducing the photo, as the original credit for the photo is not always given. There is even a mention of these on the BBC radio website, without reference to the fact that the photo is probably not real.
This is a photo of the only gummie lighthouses I could find on the net. They look plenty phallic but I can't tell if they are the same as in the original photo. Perhaps Joey Devilla changed the brand to avoid potentially unfortunate consequeses? At any rate, I feel that I just may have saved the reputation of the Mill Farm employees. Even though they don't exist.
