Willy Wonka

Willy Wonka sang the cheeriest of songs
to every child he did see.
For what other adult could eat candy all day long
and not get a single cavity?

    Candy is a blessing and a curse... sorry to hear about the diabetes, thought I guess in a way it can be a good thing. Forces you to stay away from all the bad-for-you stuff!

    Hmm... never heard of that one! I guess all the candy would be fine (just as long as you brush your teeth half a dozen times a day.... he he).

    This reminds me of the Alice Cooper song, 'Unfinished Sweet', if memory serves there's a line in it goes, 'And the rotten tooh fairy is satisfied'.
