Accounting For Taste

My cousins came to stay with me over Independence Day Weekend. They wanted to visit the M&M's World in Times Square. Customers can be seen taking great pleasure in filling their sacks with different colored M&M's.

I filled my sack with only black M&M's.

Clerk: Keeping it simple?

Me: They all taste the same.

His demeanor changed and the transaction concluded in silence. While I had intentionally purchased the black M&M's to prove a point, a tiny part of me felt bad for taking the wind out of his sails. He had been quite perky with all the other "guests."

You would think some other cynical asshole had already done what I did. I suppose not.
