Mars Candies has been selected as the official ballet for the 2004 Presidential election. Each US registered voter will receive a bag of m&m candy that will contain one B for Bush vote and one K for Kerry vote. Voters are encouraged to share the rest of the treats with fellow Americans that are not old enough to vote.
Voters will place the candy of their choice in a large bin that will be shipped FedEx overnight to Indonesia for tabulating. "These people are starving for something to do," remarked an unspecified source. "I don't know why we didn't think of this years ago, it would have saved billions in voting machine costs and help feed the world," the source was quoted.
"If necessary, recounts should be simple," remarked a Mars spokesperson, As always "They melt in your mouth, not in your hands."
