Why Johnny Can't Read Music!

The above is from the back of a box of General Mills' Kix cereal.

We are informed that "Annie loves to sing and make up her own colorful songs."

The first three questions are:
1) Did she sing more green notes or red notes?
2) How many red ones?
3) How many blue notes did she sing?

The answers:
1) Red
2) 4
3) 5

Dm's questions:
1) Why are the noteheads on the blue pair of sixteenth notes backwards?
2) Since when are two beamed sixteenth notes considered one note?
