Bugs Bunny makes friends with Kool-Aid

Bugs Bunny is an Academy Award-winning fictional animated rabbit who appears in the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies series of animated films produced by Warner Bros., and is one of the most recognizable characters in the world. According to his biography, he was “born” in 1940 in Brooklyn, New York and the product of many creators.

An interesting side-effect of FDA Blue #5 (found especially in the Grape and Purplesaurus Rex flavors of Kool-Aid) causes human feces to turn green when the drink is taken in sufficient quantity. This is due to the fact that bile in the human intestine reacts with the food coloring, causing the color change. The effect is considered completely harmless, since there have been no reports of ill effects as a result of the reaction.
