The Tragedy of Chocomomo (a.k.a. What Moko does w/ her candy when she can't eat it)

There once was a chocolate lollipop named Chocomomo. He was the only chocolate lollipop in the whole world, and was born in the only chocolate forest left on our planet.

He grew up surrounded by thousands of chocolate trees and mushrooms, but he was never invited to their parties or games. He dreamed of being popular...

but he was simply too different for the forest creatures to accept him as one of them. Everyone avoided him and...

...behind his smile was great sadness. So he tried to change himself. So he cut his hair in forest fashion...

...and tried his very best to blend in with the flora and fauna.


He lost weight:

Got contacts:

But it was all to no avail. The chocolate creatures didn't want to have anything to do with him. Chocomomo cried rivers of chocolate tears.

He gave up on the forest and tried to befriend the hippies who sometimes beat their drums near his home.

They were nice and mellow, but one day one the hippies actually mistook Chocomomo for his bong and nearly lit the poor little chocopop on fire.

It was with great sadness that Chocomomo took a long look in the mirror and realized he could not change himself. He was Chocomomo, and Chocomomo he would be.


So he left the forest and searched out Chocomomos like himself. He came close many times--like in a packing box outside Philadelphia.

And finally, after many months of searching, found his place amongst a group of furries:


And now, even when he's alone, he feels loved.

The end.

oh how i miss my sugar...

Whoa! I was planning to go on a low-carb diet. Is this what happens when you can't have sugar?!? http://blog.sweetservices.com/sweetscandyblog/

It gets much, much worse: my boyfriend caught me with my head buried in a box of chocolates a few weeks ago---not eating them, just aggressively sniffing their chocolateliciousness....
