59 Crabapples for Unoriginal Cereal Ideas

A few quick thoughts since I'm STILL without my gentle, loving webbernets at home.

1. This week marks a shift from Teen Tournament Jeopardy to Tournament of Champions Jeopardy. My self-esteem has been irreconcilably shot. Not only do the questions get harder, but the categories get way broader. For example, last night the final Jep-Cat was "Science." Tomorrow, we may see "Things You May Have Learned Along the Way."

2. This morning, I saw a sign at Toscanini's in Harvard announcing their new pizza bagel. It read something to the effect of: "This pizza bagel hails from a planet far, far, away. Actually, it comes from [Something-Something] Bakery in Chelsea. But Chelsea's kinda like another planet."
HMM. Not that funny. If you're gonna be all informal with your advertising, kinda be funny, right?
But speaking of not funny and informal language, here is one of the greatest posts ever; it is both the opposite of not funny AND about informal language where it doesn't belong.
Man, I got a kick outta it, and I think you will too.

3. General Mills has come out with a breakthrough new product called "Fruity Cheerios." CRAAAAZY. Uh, I've had those before, assholes.
They're called FROOT LOOPS.

"the grocery story"? whoa, more coffee, stat.

though i kinda like that as a title for something. a children's book, or a country-western album perhaps.

i could get behind that as a children's book.

or, like, the consumerist version of Veggie Tales.

Glad I'm not the only one thinking that about the Fruity Cheerios.

Even my friend's 7 year-old son had a similar comment upon seeing a commerical on tv.
