Another two-fifths of all people are slapping their hands over their ears and yelling frantically to ``shut up shut up shut UP'' because some poor child of the 80s was remembering how the thing about a Bon-Bon is it's almost always gone-gone.

Trivia: Charles Dickens's Oliver Twist is generally considered to be modelled on Robert Blincoe, an orphan born in 1792 and sold into forced labor at age seven at a cotton mill; he survived and in 1832 told his story, shocking the nation.
