And The Winner Is....
Hurray! I can finally sleep at night, the new M&M color is Purple. The intro is a bit annoying, but the flash page they have to show voting stats by country is kinda nifty. mmmmmm...purpliscious

But at least it will come out in pretty colors.

I went from learning about purple M&Ms to never wanting to eat purple M&Ms all in the space of three posts.

what I MEANT was the order in which I eat M&Ms will not be screwed up as purple fits nicely within my color order of eating M&Ms... errr... or something like that....

Purple? Hmm.. I dunno. Purple and chocolate seem like a strange combination to me. Although, now that I think about it, not appreciably more so than blue and chocolate. (Or, for that matter, any of the colors that were being voted on.)

ColdChef-- LSU fan, huh?

Finally, all of the colours of the rainbow are represented. (There are still orange M&M's, right? I haven't had an M in ages.)

JK Simmons, better known as evil inmate Vern Schillinger on "Oz," and J. Jonah Jameson in "Spider-Man," is apparently the voice of the yellow M&M.

Also, you can order any color M&M you want at Plan those wedding colors now...

I predict M&M/Mars will now phase out the brown M&M, most likely buy holding another vote, with Red and Yellow being the other choices. Hey, they talk and have personalities now, no one will want to get rid of them!

First a purple Teletubby carrying a purse, next Linda Ellerbee on Nickelodeon, now purple M & Ms, in JUNE no less!

I thought the gay scene was trying to get the Pink one voted in, in some massive subversive goof. Or did i just make that up?

I think you made that up! :)

Green M&M, purple M&M, they all wind up the same color, in the end.

Also, it appears that Greenland voted for some sort of navy blue M&M that no other country could vote for :^)

How nice of the folks in Afghanistan to take time out to vote for teal.

If the nation picked pink, the poor NASCAR driver with M&M sponsorship would have had to drive a pink Pontiac. If only more people knew of this cause and effect... 200 MPH daredevil or Mary Kay dealer? you decide!

Now now gloege, quit your back pedaling and accept your Freudian slip.

I heard that Pink actually received more of the popular vote, but due to the archaic intricacies of the M&M/Mars voting system, Purple was named the winner.

Don't blame me, I voted for Teal.

a3matrix that is kinki grrrrrl to you thank you very much! :P

Well, most of the middle east voted Pink or Teal, but Israel voted Purple. And look, Egypt voted purple too. Those infadels, support Israeli/US purple agenda, when they should clearly be supporting Teal and Pink.

I'm so sorry...
