... I'm sure I'm not the only one who doesn't know what this is supposed to be.
Look at his sleeve, i think
Wine gums? ID, please!
A TEENAGER was told he was too young to buy a pack of WINE GUMS — because they had WINE in them.
Jaz Bhogal, 15, tried to buy the fruity sweets from a town centre branch of 99p Stores — but was warned he needed to be 18 and asked for ID.
Gobsmacked Jaz, of Leverington, Cambs, said: "I couldn't believe it.
"The checkout worker asked how old I was, and when I said I was 15 he said he couldn't sell me the sweets.
"He said they had wine in them and pointed to the word wine on the packet.
"I was absolutely speechless."
The bungling shop assistant at the nearby Wisbech store forced Jaz to leave the shop empty-handed.
His outraged mum, Sue, 36, said: "I thought Jaz was joking when he came home and told me what had happened.
"It is totally ridiculous and I would have been really cross if I had asked him to buy them for me."
Red-faced 99p Stores bosses have now promised Jaz a gift voucher to spend in the shop — as long as he buys a packet of wine gums.
Graham Barnes, a spokesman for the chain, said the chewy sweets must have been classed as an age-restricted product by mistake on the tills.
He added: "Because the Wisbech store opened fairly recently there seems to have been a very unfortunate glitch.
"We have rectified this and are sure it will not happen again at any of our UK stores."
Wine gums contain no wine but carry the names of alcoholic drinks on them.
The name is thought to come from the fruit flavours that make eating them similar to the experience of savouring a fine wine.
Megan Williams' attorney, Byron L. Potts, held a news conference yesterday and announced that Williams is recanting her entire story about being raped, tortured and held captive by seven white assailants.
Williams made up the story because she wanted to get revenge against a boyfriend who had beaten her, said her attorney, Byron L. Potts. She recanted because she no longer wants to live a lie, he said. Potts said Williams has received several anonymous phone calls from people threatening her life.

What a fooking biatch!! she should be put to jail !!!
Reminds me when I was buying some Vodka (age needed to buy was 20 years) and they asked my ID, showed it to seller and I was 20years, seller said ok, and told the price, then other seller comes and tells me that my ID is old (was old, few days). Told that my new driving license hadn't arrived yet and police told to me that I can use my old license before new one arrives (which was true).
Well, they did not accept my driver license and did not sell me vodka. Like my age would change when ID gets old. This happened in Kuopio, Alko next to Prisma.
Had to by from other Alko where it did not cause any problems.
