I refilled my candy dish with fresh jelly beans and put the lid back on.  Later that day, I went for one, but couldn't believe my eyes. Instead of the pretty beans, I found a pale glob of them massed together. The lid was still on.  I was totally dumbfounded.  

I asked my young son why the jelly beans looked that way.  He answered, "I licked them all so no one else would eat them."
