BUENA VISTA, CO -- The once-attractive Christmas candy house at a Buena Vista household
has been deemed uninhabitable and a replica of a "Detroit crack house."
The home, made of gingerbread with numerous candies
and jellies stuck to the outside with icing, had one side of the roof almost completely
gone and the front entrance door blown out. It looked like a
bomb had struck it. Pieces of candy, closely resembling rubble,
were scattered inside the structure.
"The home has seen better days," admitted Dave Blackburn (bottom left), who sipped hot
tea on his back deck, "It was once a wonderful house but now it's just a place for
people to shoot up."
Steve "Colorado Guy" Garufi, who was
visiting his friends, was encouraged to eat as much of the candy
remaining on the house.
"I like the red and green circular jellies,"
said Steve (bottom right photo),
"I tried to pull off some of the Tootsie Rolls, but they were really stuck to the icing."
Once the photos of the dilapidated candy house were shown to the ColoradoGuy.com community,
a flurry of reactions were given.
"It looks like a redneck septic tank that was overly decorated for Christmas,
and the contents caused it to explode due to overuse on New Year's Eve," stated Scott Baker in Colorado Springs.
"And it does look like a crack house ... for that matter,
a Colorado Springs crack house!" he added.
"Was it made out of graham crackers or ginger bread?
If it was graham crackers, no wonder it's already falling down. It's ghetto," stated Kansas Kelly.
Lisa in Victor, Colorado had an interesting perspective:
"Welcome to the Hypoglycemia house, ravaged by irresponsible diabetics!" she said.
Steve plans to visit his friends in the next day to
borrow a bike rack so he can have his road bike while in
Arizona ... and to have more candy, of course.
"There are some red hots I'd like to have and I'll be game for more of those red and green jellies," he said.
