Not to be confused with the game of nearly the same name. No, sir.


Mr and Mrs Bugg are standing in front of a mountain, which has a tunnel bored into it, and out of which is rolling a mine cart on a track. Mr and Mrs Bugg are both wearing miners’ headlamps — Mrs Bugg’s has a bow on — and are carrying pickaxes. They look pleased as punch to be the first to mine candy.

The text reads: “Decembugg 5, 1848: Buggifornia Candy Rush … large amounts of jelly beans and other candy are found in Buggifornia.”
