And you'll eat that milk chocolate while watching NFL Draft analysis the same day the World Cup Final is on.

Generic candy is marketed as just as good as the real thing. Okay, sure! I'll give it a try. AAAHH! GAHHHH! What the … a sugar plantation worker just took a dump in my mouth! (For the WNBA part, the dump is taken in your eyes.)

What the? Did you get a deep fried Snickers bar at your county fair? Whoa. You have quite the death wish. You're so EXTREME!
