Let's clear something up.
Because that is what I am trying to do here at The 'Neck. I'm not trying to make you laugh or cry or send me money. I'm trying to change the world.
And, just like pedophilia, it all starts with gummi bears.
Namely, the pineapple gummi bear.
You know which one I mean; not red, orange, green or yellow.
The other color.
Depending on how you look at it.
You see I took a very scientific poll the other day and received an even split of people saying it was the "white" gummi bear or the "clear" gummi bear.
Obviously, I went to the internet for the answer - only to discover that the Haribo website lists it as white, while the Wikipedia page lists it as clear.
I was very firmly on Team Clear to begin the argument - but then as it went on I began thinking - clear isn't really a color. Or a flavor. How could something be flavored as clear? Wouldn't that confuse kids everywhere? Wouldn't they start asking for some "clear" instead of water. Or eating air? I don't want to live in a world where kids everywhere are eating air. They'll ruin their appetite for dinner!
But that doesn't mean that "clear" isn't necessarily correct. The actual, physical bear has no white coloring in it whatsoever. And they are pineapple flavored - and pineapples are not white. The only way you could say a pineapple was white is if it liked to watch "Two and a Half Men" and was a bad dancer. So white is also incorrect.
Then again, pineapples aren't clear either. And if they are, it would explain why I thought all these kids were eating air.
But don't they know they are going to ruin their appetite?
Let's settle this debate once and for all -
Are the pineapple gummi bears white, or clear?
