Everyone is entitled to their opinions. Just let it go. What's whining to you may be a valid concern to others. And vice versa.

And can't your post be considered whining ;)

Because the primary ingredient, Pink Bismuth (Bismuth Subsalicylate) is pink.

BGnR - it was going to sound better -

The rare earth element, Bismol, is pink in its native form.

- even if it wasn't entirely true. The better question would be why is PB so thick?

There's a famous trademark case that because pinkness is a functional aspect of bismuth subsalicylate, the manufacturer cannot sue competitors for making their products pink as well.

Blake Edwards created the screenplay for the Pink Panther movie around a stolen "Pink Panther Diamond" and the character was animated by the famous "Fritz" Freleng to play off of that for the opening credits of that movie.

It's because it was originally a reward for any of the Mary Kay ladies who sold that many freaking boxes of cosmetics. It was THE top seller's prize. In a weird way, it was one of the few methods for a woman back then in the 50s/60s to prove she could really sustain a job and be a good businessperson without wearing an extra tight sweater and "taking one for the team" each time a sexist joke was told.

Mary Kay awarded the first one in 1969. They still give them out too.

I know a lady who drag races a Buick Regal T-Type that is Mary Kay Pink. She is a Mary Kay rep, they even sponsor her, and her husband is the pit crew. The car's name?

"Pink Lady"
