The different faces of the FCC ... on an M&M near you


Are you angry as heck at the prospect of losing spectrum? Or so mad about net neutrality that you want to bite the head off of a member of the Federal Communications Commission?

Or maybe you've always wanted a candy dish brimming with M&Ms bearing the mugs of FCC commissioners. Comcast? Verizon?

Now that's all possible, thanks to Commissioner Meredith Attwell Baker. She recently ordered a package of M&Ms stamped with the images of the five commissioners.

"I got the idea from Oprah. I love Oprah," Baker said during a recent visit. "We just wanted to have some fun for the holidays. I'm all about having fun."

The junior Republican member of the nation's communications watchdog agency ordered just one pack for hoots. Cost was about $35 and she'll be using a similiar shot to the blurry one above by PostTech for her Facebook page. Notice the candies are lined up in the same order of FCC members's commission seats (From left: Mignon Clyburn, Michael Copps, Julius Genachowski, Robert McDowell and Baker).

Now tell us, which one would you eat first?
