Hey, wouldja look at that? Some artist has created a striking portrait of rapper Marshall Mathers made entirely out of 1000+ M&M’s chocolate candies! Get it? Because Mr. Mathers performs under the name Eminem … which sounds sorta like “M&M’s”…ah, never mind. I guess that pun will never get old for some people. Anyway, the folks at Ripley’s Believe it or Not! just informed me via press release that they have purchased this lifelike confectionery artwork for one of their museums. I totally believe that, Ripley! And I just wanted to share this news with all of you, since I find this image oddly transfixing. I do, however, question the artist’s limited color palette. (What, no green M&M’s? Were you saving those all for a portrait of David Lee Roth?) Holler if you’re with me.
