The goo on old Popsicles

It may be September, but it’s still summer. Popsicles are a staple in all of America’s freezers.

But once you’ve pulled the frozen delicacy from your freezer and peeled back the wrapper, you notice something strange, something foreign, something wrong – wrong on so many levels. But what is it?

My summer-loving friends, it’s a thick layer of goo. Like the beads of sweat dripping from your nose, your Popsicle, too, is perspiring. But while your glands release a salty, dirty liquid, your treat has covered itself in a thick, sticky residue.

What do you do now? Do you give the Popsicle a bath in the sink and wash it clean of its nastiness? Do you throw it away? Do you give it your dog? You just can’t waste it, can you?

Actually, yeah, go ‘head and grab another, and toss the nasty one out.
