in M People?
Perhaps we will never know.
It's in the first paragraph of their Wikipedia page.
I was told back in the 90s it stood for Manchester. Fuck's sake.
Wrong YET again.
"The name M People is from the initials of Mike Pickering, who formed the group."
to reveal I only just found out that Hank Schrader (Breaking Bad) plays the fella Arnie cusses about his face in Total Recall.
thought this was going to be about M&Ms
Additional amusement has come for many in guessing what the M might stand for (possibilities include Matrix, Magic, Muffin, Mystery, Mother and Membrane). Regardless of what the M might possibly mean, M-theory has become one of the most interesting and active areas of research in theoretical physics today.
