While on vacation last week, I came across this nasty thing....in a candy store!  Why would anyone in their right mind want to purchase one of these? A big, fat pet gummy rat. More than likely as a prank, which in my opinion would be a cruel one! 

My 9 year old actually wanted to buy it and I didn't let him. I couldn't see him spending a dollar on it much less the $8 they were wanting for it. lol Gross! Has anyone ever been kind enough to pull this kind of prank on you with a fake, candy insect or rodent? lol
