Is Van Halen In Town?

Tonight at the grocery store deli there was a woman getting an order of the tortellini salad. For those not familiar, this is a cold pasta salad with green/white/kinda orange-ish tortellini(good stuff!). The woman behind the counter was instructed by a customer to create a small container with only the white tortellini. Not sure if she purchased any M&M's but I'm betting she's a "no brown ones" kinda girl.

I'm confused. What does this have to do with Van Halen? I must be missing some sort of reference.

I have heard about brown M&M's being banned from their dressing room, but I am having trouble making the tortellini connection...so I dunno.

Hahahahahaha. I get it.


VH had it in their contracts that no brown M&Ms can be in their M&M bowls backstage at any of their concerts. So, someone had to make sure the brwon M&Ms were taken out. The salad above is just like that, and it is odd to have JUST the white in a request, ergo, the VH reference.

And in a twist, things like this is part of my job. I get requests from the people of actors who come to my stage. Most of it is normal, some of it is not.

VH has come out and explained that it's not that they didn't like brown M&Ms just that they put things like that in to make sure the contracts were read thoroughly because promoters had been cutting back on safety measures for cost-cutting purposes.

Here's the link if anyone is interested:
