Uncle Joe's Minty Balls
Sharing is Good
My commute to work is a drag, but there's one thing that never fails to catch my attention as i pass by. A giant red pornographic sign, painted onto the side of the above building, telling me how great Uncle Joe's balls are. This mysterious sign made me curious for weeks. Who the hell is Uncle Joe and why the heck are his balls so minty?
For months i pondered, until i realised that the supermarket was hiding the answer to the riddle of Uncle Joe.
One night, after a long day's work i was on a hunt for sugar, sweets and E numbers to perk me up, when there, nestled on the bottom shelf of the forbidden aisle, between boiled sweets and sherbet straws was a shiny vintage looking tin can with Uncle Joe, the ball man himself slapped on the front.
There was only one thing for it. I bought the balls! I sucked on the balls and let me tell you now, they're pretty darn minty.
Who knew that Uncle Joe's balls were actually sweets! And here i was, thinking Uncle Joe was a dirty old man.
They even have a Mint Ball song, which is hilarious!
"Give 'em to your Granny and watch the beggar go. Away with coughs and sniffles, take a few in hand, suck 'em and see, you'll agree they're the best in all the land!"
Now that i know Uncle Joe isn't a pervert, it's kind of refreshing to see a company with a sense of humour who's not afraid to be a little 'out there'.
