    Valentine's chocolate boxes don't come with the really bad chocolates anymore and they always have a map for the chocolate to make sure you get the right one. No longer does an unsuspecting kid bite into an orange, strawberry, or green chocolate expecting caramel... oh no, now the chocolates come with caramel and chocolate ONLY.

    When you tell a kid "life is like a box of chocolates" these days, do they even know what you mean? :confused:

    Chocolate companies, start sneaking in a few orange chocolates, teach the kids a life lesson. :p

    Unless you live on the other side of the date line... isn't it more telling about the state of the world today that you could not wait until Valentine's Day to eat your Valentine's chocolates, but instead devoured them early in order to be the first one to post this witticism?

    I like this line of thinking. Either eliminate the "map" altogether, or publish a totally random, misleading one.

    I remember the mystery of "Wha'd ye get???", then passing it off to another if unhappy.

    Ah, the good old days. :rolleyes:

    But you know... when you tell a kid life's like a choco box... you're in a way.. heck absolutely correct!
    Because life today truly is mapped out for kids... they know whichever piece they choose.. its only going to be the delicious caramel filled mouth watering one.... no kid today really cares about the consequences because in the end they know... it'll be the same'o same ol caramel filled chocolate!

    Want an example.. look here http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=651154

    Can't you just switch all the chocolates' places around, thus ensuring pain and suffering once again?

    they usually are shaped differently, and the box is built for each one in its own space ...
