While Jair Bolsonaro fanatics attempted their own Jan. 6 style coup d’état of the government in Brazil, a war continued to rage in Ukraine and Russia, and the Republican Party took forever to figure out who their figurehead leader would be in the House of Representatives, Fox News had bigger fish to fry: woke M&M’s.
With Christmas almost a year away and Halloween nowhere in sight, Fox News needed to come up with something to scream about, and they came up with “woke M&M’s.” What made the candy so “woke,” in their estimation? The parent company of the candy, Mars Wrigley, announced they would be donating some of the profits from their M&M sales to organizations that support a variety of professional pursuits by women.
That was over the weekend. By Monday, someone had clipped a 14-second clip of Tucker Carlson reckoning with an upcoming “woke M&M’s” segment. We live in interesting and difficult times. Please. Enjoy.

In the clip, Tucker says. Verbatim. Into a microphone. On camera: “Woke M&M's have returned. The green M&M got her boots back, but apparently is now a lesbian, maybe? And there's also a plus-sized obese purple M&M, so we're gonna cover that, of course. Because that's what we do.”
I may have watched this literally 25 times.
The responses to the video are also enjoyable because Tucker is such a crappy guy.
Nostradamus over here:
Here’s a little history for you.
Here’s one that if you don’t know the reference, you might want to search it out. Very funny and what a lot of the kids are laughing about these days.
Here’s a public service announcement.
Here’s something to think about.
This might be my favorite.
