M&M Wars

Today I learned something so charming about the Butcher that I had to come tell you about it. I should warn you that it is so charming that it made me realize that, if I weren’t related to the Butcher, I would have to search him out to befriend him.

So, we’re sitting here on the couch watching cartoons, eating M&Ms when the Butcher says “Yellow is kicking ass.”

I say, “What?”

And the Butcher says, “Before I eat any M&M, I fight it against another M&M and whichever one cracks first, gets eaten. This yellow has lasted six rounds. That’s great for an M&M.”

Oh my god! He fights his M&Ms! I’ve know him thirty and a half years and I never knew that, but I find it so awesome and hilarious.
