Candy Cornians -- brace yourself! Yes, tomorrow is National Candy Corn Day, and though it is a day that should be filled with nothing but whimsy and joy (and plenty of candy corn), it is also the day on which candy corn lovers like yourself endure the most scorn and ridicule.
Just this evening, I came across this post on Facebook:
Is this supposed to be funny? The cretin who posted this map may think it is funny -- and that most if not all people would be more than happy to join hands and proclaim that all other candy is better than candy corn -- but nothing could be further from the truth. Have you ever tried circus peanuts? That stuff is NASTY!!!
The FACTS are in:
* Candy corn is America's favorite candy corn.
* Most if not all true Americans love candy corn.
* Most if not all true Americans recognize that candy corn is a national treasure.
* Children love candy corn, and most state that it is the most-hoped-for-treat on Halloween.
Be vigilant over the next 24 hours and respond quickly and consistently to bullying behavior against lovers of candy corn. Take action immediately, and send the message that anti-candy-corn bigotry is not acceptable.
