A serious examination of the deep philisophical importance of yucky candy.

And people would still keep tasting candy because they'd expect it to taste good again real soon, and they'd get more and more desperate for yummy candy so they'd bite into lots and lots of pieces of icky candy. But the candy would never taste good because God doesn't want anyone to eat candy because he used to be a dentist. Also when you die he makes you look at your X-rays. -- K. Did you ever see your X-rays? If so, that means you're already dead!

But the international symbol for radiation has FOUR caramel pieces! Lick any local fallout shelter if you don't believe me! In ASCII, it looks like this: ##### The top fan blade symbolizes progress. ### # The bottom left fan blade represents truth. ####(#)#### ### ### The bottom right fan blade represents democracy. ## ## The dot in the center represents THE CREAMY NOUGAT CENTER! So whoever made your pudding cup was either too stupid to know what nougat means to the Atomic Energy Commission, or was a Communist, depending on which part was missing. FOR YOUR SAKE, I HOPE YOU DIDN'T EAT ANY PUDDING THAT HAD THE BOTTOM RIGHT BLOB MISSING. BECAUSE IF YOU DID EAT PINK COMMIE PUDDING, THIS MEANS YOU'RE NOW A COMMIE. No, wait. Eating pink stuff makes you gay. It's eating red stuff that makes you a Commie. Or giving birth to Desi Arnaz Jr. Ever notice the fallout shelter symbol, ##### ### # ##### ##### ### ### # # ...is just three gay symbols tucked together in a circle? This is because the Commies were hoping that all the American men would pack themselves into fallout shelters and turn gay after eating pink Commie gay pudding. This would eliminate the threat posed by the American men, and to get rid of the women the Commies would just go door-to-door and sell them vacuum cleaners until they all went broke and had to take jobs in the candy factory, where the pink nougat would come down a conveyor belt so fast it would make them get dizzy and pass out, and when they woke up they'd be school cafeteria workers. THAT'S THE MASTER PLAN, FOLKS. THAT'S THE ONLY MASTER PLAN. -- K. Suppose Sigmund Freud, Sherlock Holmes, and Moe Howard were trapped in an elevator playing MasterMind. I think it would go something like this... "YOU SUCK! YOU SUCK! GET OFF THE STAGE! MORE CARROT TOP!"

Does that mean you didn't eat it? It's wasteful to throw away your pudding belly-buttons. There are starving children in (INSERT NAME OF CONTINENT WE'RE GLAD WE'LL NEVER HAVE TO VISIT, WE VOTED FOR EISENHOWER) who would kill each other with their home-made switchblade knives just to have a pudding belly-button, because they're so poor they can't afford to have belly-buttons. Or did you swallow it, because it contained the secret microfilm with the names of all 100000000000 of the Communists in the United States Senate, you Commie? And while we're on the subject, would Alger Hiss have been prosecuted if his name hadn't been so obviously evil? I mean, it's Algae plus Plunger plus Hiss. Like the way Saugus is Sausage plus Fungus. And so's its name. -- K. I have a belly-any-key.

Okay, Michael, allow me to undo your psychic scarring! (FADE IN on lettering which is slightly off-center to make it look "with it". There is badly distorted educational-film trumpet music.) Kibo presents TOO MUCH CANDY IS GOOD FOR YOU An After-School Special Show (A KID is returning home from trick-or-treating. He is dressed as Evel Knievel and carries an old pillowcase full of generic candy, such as licorice allsorts, ribbon candy, and those little dots on adding-machine tape. He enters the living room.) KID Oh boy! I got candy! MOMMY Now Michael, don't eat all that candy tonight! Save half of it for breakfast. DADDY And remember to give the Pope 10% of it! KID Okay Mommy! Okay Daddy! Now I'm gonna eat my candy! Bye! (He runs into his bedroom, which is decorated with generic road signs such as "SPEED LIMIT", "STREET", and red octagons which say "SLOW". He dumps the pillowcase of candy out onto the bed and then shouts "Whee!" and does a belly-flop into the pile of candy. We see a cowboy poster on his wall. A tear runs down the face of the cowboy.) COWBOY (on poster, smoking) Hey, kid! Don't play with your food! Just eat the friggin' candy! UNCLE SAM (on a WWII-era "I Want You!" poster) Yeah, kid! Candy's for the eatin'! I want you... to eat candy! TEDDY BEAR I wish I were real so I could eat candy! KID Oh boy! I got a LOT of candy! (He picks one up and pops it into his mouth, then immediately falls asleep. Harp glissandos. His bed floats into the air and flies out the window with him lying face down. It passes over The Magical Candy Factory Of Learning and dumps him into a smokestack. His body gets all swirly as he spirals down the smokestack like drain water. He lands on a giant marshmallow.) KID Hey! My bed got softer! Wait, this isn't a bed, it's a marshmallow! Maybe this isn't my bedroom! (Two robots, KNINK and KNANK, enter.) KNINK & KNANK (singing, together) Weeeeee rep-re-sent the Magical Candy Factory the Magical Candy Factory the Magical Candy Factory Of Learrrrrrrr-ninnnngggggggg! KNINK We're here to teach you-- KNANK --to teach you-- KNINK --teach you stuff! KNANK --fun stuff. KNINK & KNANK (together) JUST BECAUSE WE LIKE YOU! KID Wow! But... Hey! What could anyone possibly learn from a candy factory? KNINK Here, watch this educational-- KNANK --this educational TV show. KNINK It's educational, you know. (They wheel in a big candy-encrusted console TV with a scary smiling face where the picture tube should be. They push it very close to the kid's face. The TV opens its mouth and spits a stream of acid in the boy's face.) KID YAAAAAAGH!!! IT'S ACID! MY EYES, MY EYES! KNINK Ha ha ha ha! KNANK Hee hee hee hee! KNINK & KNANK (together) Don't be silly, that's CANDY acid! KID (licking his face) Wow! You're right! It tastes good! KNINK Good for you, too! KNANK Betcha never knew learning about candy could taste so good! KID Holy cow! I wanna learn more! I wanna learn so much more I could burst! KNINK & KNANK (together) If that is your wish, o master, then thy will be done! (The two robots embrace and there is a flash of light. They turn into a robotic, candy-covered chair. The chair grabs the kid and straps him in with licorice rope.) KID (giggling) That tickles! CHAIR Careful, don't fall out! (The chair rolls onto the factory floor. A huge machine is dripping out tiny chocolate drops. Each one makes a different musical note as it comes out of the nozzle.) CHAIR This is how chocolate bars are made. First we make chocolate drops, then we melt them in a special bar-shaped mold! Would you like to see the mold? KID Sure! CHAIR Here you go! (The chair holds up a candy bar covered with green fuzz and shoves it into the kid's mouth. He immediately becomes morbidly obese, and develops high-water pants.) CHAIR Mmmmmmmmmm, mold! KID (with his mouth full) Thif tafes delifif! CHAIR No talking in the factory, kid! Even with your mouth full! Next stop, Nougatland! (The chair passes under a waterfall of melted nougat. The kid now has three-eighths of an inch of it all over.) KID I can't breathe! CHAIR Then you need a dip! (The chair jumps off a high-diving board into a vat of candy shell. The chair climbs out and now the kid has a glossy red shell. A hydraulic stamper comes down from the ceiling and prints a white "K" on his belly.) KID (being suffocated) MMMMMFFFFF!!! MMMMMMMMFFFFFFFFFFFF!!!!! CHAIR Wanna see how peanuts are shelled? KID MMMMMMMMMMMMMMFFFFFFFF!!! MMMMMMFFFFFFFFFFFFF!!! CHAIR Okay, we'll skip that one and look at how candy canes get their stripes! (The chair rolls over to where Jack Nicholson has just had his nostril slit open in "Chinatown". He is picking up plain white candy canes and screwing them into his nose, then pulling them out with red stripes.) KID (passing out) Mmmmmfffff... mmm... CHAIR Hey, kid, you don't sound so good. In fact, you sound DEAD! Guess you should've eaten more candy! (There is a flash of light and an explosions as the chair separates into KNINK and KNANK. The kid, still covered in goop and unconscious, falls to the floor. Several elephants, covered with fluorescent psychedelic swirls that keep changing color, stampede over him.) KNINK (to KNANK) Looks like Michael learned his lesson! KNANK (to KNINK) Yes, Michael learned his lesson! About candy! KNINK The lesson about candy is that you should always eat it! KNANK Yes, you should always eat candy! (Both turn to stare into the camera in extreme close-up.) KNINK & KNANK (together) ...BEFORE THE CANDY EATS YOU! (The robots explode, and it begins raining candy.) (FADE TO BLACK) TITLE CARD: AN ENCYCLOPEDIA NECCONICA EDUCATIONAL FILM -- K. I hope this sets everything back to normal, like the end of a wacky sitcom where Chachi has to dress up as an Arab sheik.
