I couldn't agree more! Just wanted to let you know this is one of the few things that actually made me laugh out loud this week...thanks.
You can lump black licorice in there too...of course they wouldn't really be chewy balls of evil. Maybe if you rolled 'em up though?
Give me a bag of jelly beans at easter time and I'm like such a crack addict that I even eat the black ones. I just can't help myself. Usually they are reserved for last, when I've eaten the good ones and just need SOMETHING for my jelly bean fix. Maybe there's something to that comment about them being evil. I don't even know why they put them in the bag, when they could replace them with the PURPLE jelly beans and make me the happiest guy on the planet.

I too find black jellybeans to be the least appealing flavour, in a standard bag. I have had some bags where there were really nasty flavours, such as "soapy fruit thing" that wasn't black, but that's just low quality beans right there.
However, for some strange reason, they are my mothers favourite. She hates the green ones. My mother is strange.
halloween jelly bean bags make me sad, because they are half orange and half black. Orange being super rad, and black, well, sucking ass.

"Life is like a box of chocolates: a cheap, thoughtless, perfunctory gift that no one ever asks for. Unreturnable, because all you get back is another box of chocolates. So you're stuck with this undefinable whiff- mint crap that you mindlessly wolf down until there's nothing else to eat. Sure, once in a while there's a peanut butter cup, english toffee, but they're gone too fast, the taste is fleeting. So you end up with nothing but broken bits filled with hardened jelly and teeth-shattering nuts. If you're desperate enough to eat those all you've got left is an empty box filled with useless brown paper wrappers." -Cigarette Smoking Man, The X-Files

Really enjoyed the short, yet well put article there Tanya, it was very thought provoking. Well first off I am a guy who loves Pro wrestling and other forms of staged violence (Jackie Chan, Arnold movies the works.)
