America's Children Threatened by Alcoholic Gummy Bears

New, 5 comments

Everyone panic: the children are getting drunk off gummy bears. It's true, there are all kind of YouTube videos about it and police are warning parents, high school administrators are in a panic, and local news reporters across the country are having the time of their lives.

It seems that after a few days in a vodka bath, the gummy bears turn into bloated versions of their former selves but are still identifiably bear shaped. And sneaky kids are maybe sneaking them into schools? What will the children think of next? Alcoholic cupcakes? Or alcoholic whipped cream? Oh, wait.At least it's safer than vodka eyeballing.

Below, several gleeful local news reports on the vodka gummy menace and a warning from the Hollister, California Police Department addressed to "PARENTS, SCHOOLS AND COMMUNITY GROUPS." Also a how-to video in case you want to make your own (hint: don't use vanilla vodka) :
