(It was the blue M&M)
After an M&M float injured two sisters when it knocked over a street lamp at last week's 2005 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, the company has gotten the family not to sue and has invited them to sit in the VIP section of the 2006 parade.
That's a big step up for the PR department, compared to the $395 million suit they settled out of court for an undisclosed amount in 1997 when another parade float accident nearly killed a woman and sent her into a coma for nearly a month.
I would gladly take some debris to the head if I could get the middle ground between a $400 million suit and some front row tickets to the Macy's Parade.
Life long gift pass to the Men's Department perhaps?
I will add lamp post tampering to my list of Thanksgiving activities for next year.
