Permission to eat gummy bears on sight: granted.

Apparently, Matthew, a.k.a. Redditor Welbro, has a gummy bear addiction. His dad made him an ordinary chocolate cake for his 18th birthday, but it wasn't long before a band of rogue gummy bears used the opportunity to turn the occasion into a protest for their rights. With all the news coverage of the birthday festivities, they figured their demonstration could not be ignored by the snacking authorities. The wrongly accused Green 18, who were guilty of nothing more than being green in the wrong place at the wrong time, would surely be set free from their chocolate frosting shackles. And they were!
