Default What really happened to FT's ninja scorpions...

Unbeknownst to most TO members and even to the United States Department of Homeland Security, a strange freight container was delivered to the Columbus, Ohio, area around January 1st. The contents of this container were never identified as the frieght workers were all found dead...poisoned by venomous stings...and thousands of tiny footprints leading north in the snow.

FT's highly-trained ninja scorpion strike force had made US landfall - destination - the compound of Aureus and his ninja bacteria. The fighting was fierce, but in the end we prevailed. The result was actually a boon for me because I was able to sell the hundreds of scorpion bodies to this reputable business:

That was a really long post just to advertise the most tramatizing type of confectionary I've heard of outside of Harry Potter.

I applaud your creativity, but this being the enclave you could probably have just said "LOL SKORPEON CANDEEE!1!" :P.

I actually saw them in a science catalogue that we get for our kids homeschool stuff and my initial reaction was "wtf?" After a while I thought that FT would really like them. Then I thought that it would be fun to pick on him about them. I may have to organize a delivery arriving at his place just for spite. :P

I actually think they look okay.
It's obviously not real scorpion, as that's probably illegal in soooo many ways, rather I'd guess a crunchy shell around bubblegum or something…

No, it is real scorpian, and perfectly legal. They remove the toxin sacks
