An appeal to Admissions: Accept the brown M&M

Remember that four-eyed brown M&M in those white high heels who made us all LOL on Super Bowl Sunday? Ms. Brown (not to be confused with Chris Brown) is the newest addition to the colorful M&M crew that rolls deep: Red, Yellow, Green, Blue, and Orange have all embraced their posse’s newest sassy, smart and sophisticated member. For these reasons (among some other fairly obvious ones), we think Brown University would be the perfect fit for the little lady. Here’s why:

She wears glasses, so she must be smart. Ms. Brown is not your average chocolate. Sure, her specs may reveal nerdiness, but no shame: We Brunos openly embrace our inner brainiac. Plus, Ms. Brown’s glasses are sexy (and she knows it).

She’s worldly. With contacts like the ever ambiguous “Mr. Prime Minister,” we’d hope that Ms. Brown would consider pursuing a concentration in International Relations… along with everybody else at Brown. Good luck figuring that one out before the department changes the concentration requirements again.

She’s professional. Not only does Ms. Brown have her very own business card, but a New York Times article described Ms. Brown as “an intelligent woman with a sharp wit who finally decided to reveal herself after working for decades behind the scenes as ‘chief chocolate officer.'” Chief chocolate officer? Sign this girl up for Brown Women in Business, and give her an MBA while you’re at it.

She’s already got her Brown swag on (literally and figuratively). Clad in that crisp brown shell, Ms. Brown undoubtedly shows her loyalty to the finest academic institution of them all — Ra Ra Brunonia, yo.

She’s determined, yet rebellious. On her Twitter page, Ms. Brown invokes ‎Laurel Thatcher Ulrich: “Well behaved [sic] women seldom make history.” A prime example of a work hard, play harder mentality. We see you.

People always thinks she’s naked. “My shell is brown, it just looks like my milk chocolate is showing. Only a fool would think I’d actually show up naked.” Sound familiar? Bill O’Reilly thinks we show up naked to everything, too (and many people actually do).

Fun fact: Vanessa Williams is the voice of Ms. Brown. Yep, I just blew your mind.
