As promised here is the original story of Barbie and her Freudian slip of calling the Reese’s Pieces candy Reese’s Penis (thanks to a friend who was there for the story):
Barbie, Philip (my son who was about 13) and I went to Vaughan Mills for a day of shopping.
One of our stops was the Rocky Mountain Chocolate store.
At the back of the store are display cases with all of their feature apples. We went through a few of them–Basic Candy Apples, Oreo Cookie Apple…..
Barbie points to the glass and quite loudly says “look they even have Reese Penis”.
5-4-3-2-1…here comes the look of horror as she plays back in her head what she had just said. The guy to the right of us is shocked, Philip walked away and I burst into laughter.
Barbie’s face turns red and she asks if she really said what she thought she said….I was laughing so hard all I could do was nod.
At that point we left the store, buying nothing.
