I used to eat this all the time! :) Ah, memories.

I love Cap'n Crunch, but it pretty much attacks my mouth like a shuriken.

Can't ever go wrong with Special K Red Berries.

Jingle: "This world's a-changing faster than a teardrop turns to laughter
But some things never change, and they're the things that really matter.
Like weather vanes and country lanes, where crickets chirp at night
And breakfast in the early morning starts your day off right."

[ cut to interior farmhouse kitchen table, breakfast time ]

Farmwife: Out here on the farm, breakfast is our most important meal. That's why we start each day the natural way. With a big brimming bowl.. of Quarry. [ shows product ]

[ family members pour the rocks from the box into their bowls ]

Farmwife: Quarry contains no preservatives, no additives, no artificial flavoring. And it's made without the use of pesticides or inorganic fertilizer. Because Quarry isn't grown; it's mined. It's the only cereal that's pure 100% rocks and pebbles, for a hearty old-fashioned flavor the whole family will enjoy.

[ flash cuts of family "chewing" on the rocks in their bowls ]

Son: Great, Mom!

Farmer: This is really good.

Daughter: Delicious!

Farmwife: And it's good for them. Because every serving is chockful of minerals.

Daughter: I like Quarry 'cause it's crunchy.

Farmwife: What?

Daughter: [ louder ] I said, I like Quarry 'cause it's crunchy!

Farmwife: So, if breakfast is important to you, try Quarry.

Jingle: "Like swimmin' holes and brimmin' bowls
of cereal made from stone.

Announcer: Quarry. Better tasting 'cause it's mined.

We finally had our land-line telephone disconnected, we weren't using it for anything but the occasional fax.

"What has that got to do with cereal?" You might ask.

Go ahead, I'll wait while you ask....

Ok, whatever. Some people just don't cooperate. You know who you are.

Well, I may have told this anecdote on here somewhere else in the past, but its a good one.

Any new phone number you get, well some time before you had it, someone else had it. They moved or whatever, and the number became available, the phone company assigned it to you.

Sometimes you may get calls for whoever had the number before. Usually from phone solicitors, anyone who knew the person usually has their new number.

So, it turns out, the owner of the phone number before it was assigned to us had last name "Frankenberry". For real.
Actually "Sherri Frankenberry" if you can believe that. Who would do that to their kid?

Anyway, any time this phone would ring, it was usually a phone solicitor, who had the name "Sherri Frankenberry" in front of them and this number. Hearing a man's voice answer, they would inevitably say

"May I speak to Mr Frankenberry?"

To which, without missing a beat, I would smoothly give my well-practiced reply

"Sorry, he's out right now but this is Count Chocula, can I take a message?"


:D it was ALMOST worth leaving the phone connected just so I could keep using that line.

PS where the hell's BLINKY in the new list of Smilies? :shock:

I'd still eat a big [expletive] bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch right now anyway.

I miss me some StatmanCrothers.

And Capn Crunch. Maybe in a few years when I'm in MY wallet I'll just say f-it, I'm eating Capn Crunch for dinner.

Peanut butter and Chocolate Cheerios were the greatest innovation of the last decade in the cereal business.
