Giant life saver

Todays pic just reminded me....

I recently met an older couple who adopted a four year old girl. They were proudly telling me, the only candy they give her is life savers because of the hole in the middle. Apparently if the candy becomes lodged in the girls throat she will not choke to death. They heard that is why it was invented. The inverters daughter choked on hard candy so he made life savers and named them aptly.

All nonsense of course.... Tell them or not??? they were so proud!

Appy is 100% correct that this is false. If she read the same snopes article I did- she will note that 20 years AFTER the inventor of life savers invented them, his SON actually DID die by committing suicide by leaping from an ocean liner in the Carribean. He could have used a life saver then!

I say tell them. They sound smarmy.

I think the fruit was the son of the inventor needing a lifesaver.

Squid deleted one of my posts. Again. So none of it makes sense! Wow, how effective!

It wasn't the post. It's the order.

I love you, Squid. Can't we just be friends?

Get a login. Earn a little money in the bank before being overly cantankerous. Then yes.

I'm cantakerous? Huh. I thought I was pretty tame. And I haven't used the c-word even once!

Remember way back when several of your were saying Squid wouldn't do that? He was doing that. I thought that was made clear by him already.

Nope, not even a little bit. I voted for a moderated board.

She asked, you had already answered. Repeatedly.
