Getting the Lead Out

How anticlimactic that a Pakistani-made candy bar calling itself Nuclear Sludge (a member of the exclusive Toxic Waste brand of gourmet confections) has been recalled by Indianapolis candy company, Candy Dynamics, because it contains dangerous amounts of the most mundane of all toxins: lead.

Is that all you got, Pakistan?  Lead?  C'mon, you're a nuclear state.  Where's my depleted uranium?  Where's my plutonium?  Hell, I'd settle for trace amounts of iodine-131.  Screw anemia; I'm talking leukemia!

Anyway, someone already cornered the market on lead, so deliver the radioactive goodness or knock off the phony advertising.
