Photos of Offensive Candy

You want to lose weight, but every time a piece of chocolate comes your way, you just can’t seem to resist temptation, am I right? The Brooklyn Brothers are offering you a new approach, but be warned, although it might work, it’s a little bit nasty, and if you’re easily offended, I wouldn’t suggest it.
Packaged in pretty pink foil, the Fat Pig Chocolate looks beautifully presented, with a cute pig nose on the front… until read the inscription.

“Get your snout in this. Shove every single square in your face right now. And do it quick. Or some other fat pig might ask you for a piece. Oink, oink!”
Oinkganic milk chocolate… now there’s a mother’s day gift she’s sure to remember!

May 1 Day celebrations Istanbul

As Cendiz Aktar this morning stated on BBC: '25.000 policemen to prevent a demonstration looks like a coup'.

Workers run to protect themselves from tear gas thrown by riot police during a Workers Day demonstration in Istanbul, Turkey. The rally had been banned by the government.

Thousands of police were stationed in the centre of Turkey'slargest city to block access to its main Taksim Square afterthree trade union confederations pledged to mobilise up to500,000 people in defiance of an official ban.
Strains surrounding the traditional May Day demonstrationsof workers' unity were heightened this year by union oppositionto a reform of the social security system which raises theretirement age sharply.
The unions later abandoned plans to march towards the squarebecause of the heavy police presence. Masked protesters threwbricks at the lines of riot police as armoured vehicles sprayedthem with water cannon and police fired tear gas.
