Subject: RE: BS: Smarties to drop the tube!!
I've been deprived. I've never had a Smartie.

In NY, USA, they tried to give a bagged version of our SACRED "Cracker Jacks" at Yankee Stadium. New Yorkers would have none of it and quite a fuss was made and finally Yankee Stadium went back to the "Box of Cracker Jacks". You don' mess wit NewYawkas. 'Specially their Yankees!

They'd have to change the sacred song

"Take me out to the ballgame",
"Take me out to the crowd",
"buy me some peanuts and bagged caramel popcorn"....

Nope, just doesn't work..

Here it is as it should be:

(im a red sox fan myself, shhh)

Point is, if enough fuss is made you CAN change it back. Write a letter! Scream at your local store! Stop buying the smartasses, sorry smarties!
