They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Apparently this all started back in the colonial days when some chick couldn't find anything for breakfast and decided to pour some milk on top of some popcorn (probably left over from one of those colonial movie theaters). As a final thought she sprinkled sugar on it, knowing her kids probably needed some calories before the winter, as this was before every child in America was obese. She then had the audacity to serve this to her family as soon as they got out of bed. I'm sure her husband had questions.
Husband: "What the hell is this?"
Wife: "It's for breakfast. It's the popcorn from the theater mixed with--"
H: "I'm not blind, you idiot. I can recognize vomit when I see it."
W: "That's cream and--"
H: "The popcorn soaked it all up. It's vomit. It looks like rotting cat litter."
At some point in time they must have realised their kids were quiet and eating, probably due to the three pounds of sugar the lady used to create her gourmet dish. Because of this, no doubt, they decided to keep making it.
The last thing I want when I get out of bed is a bowl of something I have to eat with a spoon that's cold and soggy, and usual has the word Flakes in it's name.
About 50% of the people in the US eat cereal for breakfast. At least 50% of the people in the US are demented imbeciles.
Do a Google image search for "best breakfast." Guess how many pictures of cereal you find.
