Candy Design Gone Wrong

20080625-lighthouses.jpgTalk about unintended consequences. I'm sure some candy designer—now there's a job I'd like to have—sat down, looked at a picture of a lighthouse, and did his or her best to render it in the form of a candy mold or whatever it is they use to make gummi shapes. The candy company spends all this money, cranks up production, and when all is said and done, creates a shape that could be interpreted as suggestive, offensive, or both. Don't see the risqué shape in the image at right? See the one below, after the jump. Possibly NSFW or for delicate sensibilities.
