Six lethal candy slugs.

Following the acquittal of George Zimmerman for the shooting of Trayvon Martin there has been a call from Zimmerman supporters for the M&M world stores in Las Vegas, New York and Orlando to be shut down. The move comes as stores around the country are to take Skittles off the shelves.

"Trayvon was carrying a packet of skittles," Judge Debra Nelson said in her summing up. "A jury have agreed with the prosecution that small round candies are a lethal weapon. Therefore I must rule that Skittles be barred from sale."

However Judge Nelson made no mention of M&M's in her summing up. Many people have pointed out that M&M's are not only very similar to Skittles but they were invented by Fred Mars Jr. after seeing soldiers in the Spanish Civil War eating chocolate pellets.

"It is clear that M&M's are a threat." Radio personality Rush Limbaugh said after the verdict. "These sorts of candy are cheap and easy for kids to buy but they are deadly. Lethal force must be used to disarm someone with these candies. We must force M&M world stores to close before someone is killed by M&M's."

So far there has been no comment from M&M's although Wrigley who make Skittles are to bring a lawsuit to prove that their candy is non lethal.
