Everything comes in a spray nowadays.

A little boy came over to my house the other day with a spray bottle in his hand. It was a little bottle and he was spraying it into his mouth. At first I thought it was Binaca. Remember Binaca? Do they even still sell Binaca? But anyway, I asked him what it was and he told me it was candy spray. And sure enough, it said it right there on the bottle, "Push Pump Candy Spray." Huh.

So evidently you no longer have to bother with the hassle of eating candy. Nay, my friend, now you can just spray it directly into your mouth, no pesky chewing necessary. What's next, injectable candy? Soon will we be able to just put the sugar and artificial coloring directly into our veins, bypassing the mouth completely?

On a completely different note, I find myself oddly drawn to the spray candy. Maybe just one squirt...

I have the same awkward fascination with spray cheese...I have never eaten it and doubt I ever will. It's just such an unnatural color and really, is it that taxing to move your jaw if you want to treat your palate to some cheese? Jim Gaffigan does a bit about the laziness involved in eating spray cheese in his Comedy Central stand-up...
