Well, I will start this one off by saying I have a huge addiction to chocolate. Love it. At work, there is a lady who comes by every Thursday with a van full of lollies that she sells to all the employees. I always stock up very well, greatly anticipate her arrival.

So one of the items I got last Thursday was a packet of M&M Minis. Now that may seem like an innocent purchase, however, I’m convinced they have a dark side after what eventuated on this fine long weekend…

They’re the variety that don’t cover the whole road, rather a large portion of the lane (and the parking lane) and as such they’re best negotiated by simply driving through the gap between the 2 in either lane.

So, I was driving around them as I, and almost everyone else I know, normally do (except for when there’s a Holden Commodore behind… They’re the classic undercover cop car…) and I heard a weird thumping sound every time I went over the slight bumps.
