Shrek's M&M's

What's your guess?  How many Ogre-sized M&M's Milk Chocolate Candies will fill the Grand Canyon?

That's the current M&M's promotion to promote their largeer M&M's.  Pretty interesting for the following reasons:

  • There is now enough information publicly available on the Internet to very accurately answer this question.
  • Chances are that someone will come up with the correct answer and post it somewhere on the web (maybe even in a blog).
  • This could very easily be a puzzle question for a Microsoft interview -- too bad they won't be able to use after the answer is announced (or maybe they should just to figure out what the interviewee's process was for determining the exactly correct answer on the Internet).

I want to know what are the odds of buying two consecutive bags of M and M's and have the same number plus the same breakdown in color. The great math genius of Upper Marlboro, Marcus Ronaldi stated that the odds of that happening are less than opening a phone book of the entire United States and picking out your name.
