Dammit. Can't type. But have to share. From Kevin Underhill's Lowering The Bar:

On May 21, a judge of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California dismissed a complaint filed by a woman who said she had purchased "Cap'n Crunch with Crunchberries" because she believed "crunchberries" were real fruit. The plaintiff, Janine Sugawara, alleged that she had only recently learned to her dismay that said "berries" were in fact simply brightly-colored cereal balls, and that although the product did contain some strawberry fruit concentrate, it was not otherwise redeemed by fruit. She sued, on behalf of herself and all similarly situated consumers who also apparently believed that there are fields somewhere in our land thronged by crunchberry bushes.


May be awhile before the next real entry. The last one kinda hurt. But how could I not pass this one along?

Who's going to break it to her that Cap'n Crunch isn't really an officer in any recognized naval force in the world?



H/T to Boing Boing!

And of course this answers the question about those damn cookies being made with real girl guides....

Oh yeah, like next you're going to tell me that Fig Newtons aren't made of Australian pop stars and Physicists.

I heard that Captain Crunch and Tony the Tiger were found dead in Tucscon, AZ last week.

They suspect a "Cereal" killer did the job.

How could I resist?

That turns out to be incorrect, Leanright. It was autoerotic asphyxiation killed the tiger and the captain.

Jim, you pervert.
