A few weeks ago, we cleared out our entire stock: word from on high was to get rid of them: a customer had complained.
What kind of customer, I wondered, would complain about free lollipops?
I just found out.
Someone was insulted by the name of the lollipop brand.
My first thought: So ... ummm ... you identify with the label "Dum-dum", sir?
On the bright side, we now have Tootsie Pops! I like Tootsie Pops a lot better than Dum-dums anyway.
But we all know it's just a matter of time before someone is offended by the word "Tootsie".
