The Urban Legend continues

This is what you should be looking for.
It was our turn to work in the Snack Shack for the baseball league, and both boys were really excited to help. Nate took the first shift, and he happily stocked and replenished the chips, filled the gummy worm jar, counted out licorice, and practiced his money skills by making change for his customer's orders.
But Nate's strongest skill in the Snack Shack was his customer service. It was so fun to watch him interact with the customers. He made one little boy really happy when after his purchase of two Tootsie Pop's he told him that if the wrapper has a whole picture of an Indian shooting at a star, he would receive an additional free lollipop! (What?? Where does it say that in the Snack Shack instructions??)
He sold this lore to the little boy, who quickly unwrapped his pop. Sure enough, he was a winner.
I don't know where Nate learned this, but he wanted to share the tradition.
I really don't have the heart to break it to him, but after some extensive research online, I discovered that he had fallen prey to an urban legend.
But that's how urban legends stick around~I bet that little boy will say the same thing to his next customer when he man's the shack with his mom.
