>>  Whenever I get a package of plain M&Ms, I make it my duty to continue
>> the strength and robustness of the candy as a species.  To this end, I
>> hold M&M duels.
>>  Taking two candies between my thumb and forefinger, I apply pressure,
>> squeezing them together until one of them cracks and splinters.  That
>> is the "loser," and I eat the inferior one immediately.  The winner gets
>> to go another round.
>>  I have found that, in general, the brown and red M&Ms are tougher, and
>> the newer blue ones are genetically inferior.  I have hypothesized that
>> the blue M&Ms as a race cannot survive long in the intense theatre of
>> competition that is the modern candy and snack-food world.
>>  Occasionally I will get a mutation, a candy that is misshapen, or
>> pointier, or flatter than the rest.  Almost invariably this proves to be
>> a weakness, but on very rare occasions it gives the candy extra
>> strength.  In this way, the species continues to adapt to its
>> environment.
>>  When I reach the end of the pack, I am left with one M&M, the strongest
>> of the herd.  Since it would make no sense to eat this one as well, I
>> pack it neatly in an envelope and send it to M&M Mars, A Division of
>> Mars,Inc., Hackettstown, NJ 17840-1503 U.S.A., along with a 3x5 card
>> reading,"Please use this M&M for breeding purposes."
>>  This week they wrote back to thank me, and sent me a coupon for a free
>> 1/2 pound bag of plain M&Ms.  I consider this "grant money."  I have set
>> aside the weekend for a grand tournament.  From a field of hundreds, we
>> will discover the True Champion.
>>  There can be only one.
