Chupa Chups Buddha

I don't mean to be disrespectful, but Buddhas made out of translucent resin remind me of hard candy or lollipops without sticks.  Even their colors bring to mind flavors such as tart lime, cherry red, and tangy orange.  My taxi driver with the juicy yellow Buddha would have been shocked if I had given his statue a big lick.
