: I used chocolate covered pretzels to accompany stinkfist in a story I wrote years ago (like, 2), and i wondered what the hell the motivation was behind it. I'm not accusing anyone of anything, if that is what it sounds like, I just wonder what the primary motivation was behind the use.
I always found the tone of that particular gag to be self-consciously puerile. In other words, it seemed to me that Kevin was winking at the audience with a concept (melting chocolate pretzels look scatological to our us) that one obviously didn't have to be brilliant to think of.
