A completely hypothetical situation

Let's say you're walking down the street, and at the corner of a busy intersection, you see a young woman attempting to hand out candy from a big metal bowl perched on top of a wooden box with the words "The It's Okay Box" hand-painted on it. She's not having much luck--most people just walk on by, and the bowl has plenty of candy, mostly Jolly Ranchers and toffee, left in it.

"Free candy, no catch," she says. "The recession sucks; we want to make people smile."

Do you take the candy?

Not if there are only yellow and green jollyranchers left, but otherwise, yes.
