Melamine Found in Edible Sex Accessories

Melamine-tainted baby formula: tragic and scary.

Melamine-tainted pet food: sad.

Now a New York Times story reports that melamine has also been detected in edible adult sex accessories sold in England. It's still disturbing, of course, but somehow, this time, you can't help but chuckle a little bit -- if only because this might just be the first time the phrase "edible sex accessories" has ever appeared on the pages of The New York Times.

The short article goes on to reassure people who have eaten (ahem) from the Chinese-made strawberry "body pens" and erotic chocolate lotion that the levels of melamine discovered were low.

But it just goes to show that nothing, and I do mean nothing, is sacred.
