Gummy Worms and 2nd Thoughts

We have all had those moments in life when we do something silly and think about it after the action has been completed. I have many personal examples I can share with you at some point. Here is an example from a man in North Carolina (which is nowhere near North Dakota).

The Setting: Local ice cream parlor. Beautiful, warm southern day. Birds chirping. Daffodils in full bloom.

Characters: Clarence Stowers (ice cream eater)

Plot: Man loves him some candy in his ice cream
Stowers, who did not immediately return calls
Monday from The Associated Press, told the television
station: "I thought it was candy because they put candy in your ice cream ... to make it a treat. So I said, 'OK, well, I'll just put it in my mouth and get the ice cream off of it and see what it is.'" Stowers said he spit the object out, but still couldn't identify it. So he went to his kitchen, rinsed it off with water -- and "just started screaming."
Stowers said he planned to contact a lawyer about the finger in his ice cream.
Maybe next time Clarence will select something other than gummy worms as his candy of choice. Mmmmm, finger in ice cream.

wait, i'm confused. are you talking about chicken, hard ice cream or donuts? cause i thought KFC was the finger licking good bastards. maybe they are changing their market to bring in the soccer moms. KFGW could be a good switch.
