SURREY, England (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A woman in England was shocked to discover a very naughty piece of candy among a tub of Jelly Babies. One bright pink, two-inch gummy appeared to be masturbating, which made the lady scream loudly in her office at work where she was eating the treats. A spokesperson from the store where she bought the candy laments, “We expect better behavior from our jelly sweets.” Well, May is national Masturbation Month, after all.

DAYTON, Ohio – A Taco Bell customer in Dayton, Ohio, got more than fast food at the drive-thru window – she got fast cash. An employee accidentally gave the woman a bag containing the store’s $2,000 morning bank deposit with her order. The woman drove off and has yet to be tracked down by police.

LINCOLN, Neb. – Pot smoking teenagers are quite resourceful these days. Cops in Lincoln, Nebraska, just arrested two 16-year- olds who used a hollowed-out apple and cucumber as smoking devices. Though the use of an apple – a classic stoner staple – has been seen several times before by city police, the cucumber was a first for them.

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The White Castle fast food chain has just come out with a line of tasteful, hamburger-scented candles. The wax creations resemble a juicy burger – but with a lot less calories – and cost $10 a pop, with proceeds benefitting the charity Autism Speaks.
