The men and women currently occupying the headquarters of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in southwest Oregon are mad. They've made it clear via social media that they would greatly appreciate it if people stopped sending them care packages full of sex toys and penis-shaped candies.

Writing on Facebook, protester Jon Ritzheimer said he found it "sad that there are people who would spend this kind of money on this rather than spending it to do good in the world."

Gawker reported the goods are coming from "strangers from around the country" as well as from the website itself. 

Gawker also quoted a spokesperson for the group, Maureen Peltier, who shared Ritzheimer's disgust. Peltier indicated the group may have a plan for dealing with the items, which include bags of dick-shaped sweets, saying another member of the group sometimes referred to as militia members suggested they sell everything on eBay. 

Which might just work, if you think about it, and provide the group with money to go ahead and buy the non-schlong-shaped supplies they need. 

The standoff at the Malheur is just over a week old now, and doesn't look like it will end anytime soon, care packages full of adult party favors notwithstanding.
