M&M's Characters

While we're talking about corporate mascots here, I've always been a little creeped out by the M&M's people. It's not that they talk or have faces that I have a problem with. It's those flesh colored arms that imply human beings are just dressed up as candies that bugs me. I don't want chocolate covered meat in a candy shell, thank you very much. Unless that's a euphemism in which case I'll take seven.

I think those M&M guys are darlings. When I want companionship, except not with real people, I go out and buy a sack of M&Ms. I name each one before I eat them---crazy me eh! Nutritionally, they don't have everything you need so I balance them off with some brownies. That plus coffee makes a delicious after lunch snack.

Yeah, they kind of freak me out, too. What's up with them making the sexy green one after kids started saying the green ones make you horny? That's just not family friendly. Also, where do you think the M&Ms keep their genitals? Under the shell? Is the shell like clothing or is it part of their bodies? Gross.

"Flesh" coloured? I'm offended.

I think M&Ms do taste like candy coated meat. Our son gets one for a number one on the pot, two for a number two. It hasn't been going well.
