Families who attended a parade in Hattiesburg, Mississippi were outraged when they discovered candy in the shape of dicks had been thrown during the event.

Keisha Smith told WDAM 7 her 12-year-old nephew picked up the candy and threw it to the ground. “I pick it up and I wonder what’s wrong with the candy. Is it open? I pick it up and look at it, and it’s penis candy,” she said. Hmm, sounds like your typical Halloween prank.


The parade, which is described as a family-oriented community event, had rules against sexually suggestive costumes or attire. Looks like they’ll be updating those regulations to include candy, as well. Parade organizers told the news station the participants behind the inappropriate incident were dealt with, but did not release the mischief-makers’ names.
