you can pay your Ponzi scheme in these though

I don't know, in the current economy I think those quotation marks are necessary! Imagine how fast they'd be flying off the shelves without those!

duncan said...

those kindof seem necessary to me...

shrubbery said...

I agree. These are necessary, are they not?

Beth said...

Yeah, I'm with Duncan and shrubbery...

I'm with Duncan, shrubbery and Beth. The candles aren't real gold, hence the "gold" in quotes. They belong there.

Kirsten said...

I don't think they are necessary. Does one honestly think that those candles contain a precious metal? Gold is a color too, not just the metal.

Candles could contain gold -- in particular, they could be painted with it, which was done in the olden days before more convincing fake metallic paints became available.

Relevant to this, I believe Wilton still sells food-grade gold foil and gold dust for decorating cakes and chocolates. And yes, it is actually real gold in those. So, since Wilton does (or did) sell gold cake decor, I could see their lawyers insisting on a bit more clarity for the gold-colored candles.
