Now, I would also bet that the majority of U.S. residents would name m&m's (plain or peanut) as one of their top ten favorite candies. So what happens when you combine something wonderful, such as m&m's, with something creepy, like dolls?
This is what happens:
Ah! My eyes! This, my friends, is the "Heavenly Handfuls m&m's Melts in Your Heart Doll Collection." Yes, now, for the first time ever (and let's hope the last), m&m's has paired with Ashton-Drake's line of creepy collectible baby dolls.
In case you're wondering (and I know you are!), each baby is a "mini-masterpiece, with all the details you'd expect to see in a full-sized doll--but they're only 6" long! Tiny enough to carry along with you to give you a delightful boost on the toughest day."
(Imagine this scenario: "Sorry Johnson, but we're in a recession. We've gotta let you go."
"It's okay, sir, I understand. I have my little doll right here in my pocket to make things all better.")
Each little bundle o' fright comes dressed in a specially-designed onesie and a little hat with a saying: "There's a little nut"; "Sweet on the Inside"; "Never let them see you melt"; and the appropriately threatening, "I melt for no one."
But wait! Before you go shelling out $29.99 (plus shipping and service charges) to buy one of these for your favorite little girl, please read the fine print!
"These dolls are not toys; they are fine collectibles to be enjoyed by adult collectors."
All those who think this is beyond creepy, say "Aye!"
