Stuff That Exists

Apparently Terrell Owens has a brand of honey and nut flavored o-shaped wheat cereal that is sold in the Buffalo area and may or may not be an illegal imitation of General Mills' Honey Nut Cheerios. Who knew that these existed? Is Terrell Owens really that popular? Doesn't everybody - even the most ardent admirers of his football-playing ability - admit that he's sort of a jackass? Why would his endorsement make you want to buy a breakfast cereal? He's a far cry from Doug Flutie, whose boy-next-door good looks, telegenic family and all-around good guy-ness helped his sugar-frosted corn flakes (which just so happened to bear a resemblance to Frosted Flakes) sold like gangbusters throughout upstate New York in the late 90's. WHAT IS THIS WORLD COMING TO?

Terrell Owens' T.O.'s

The more I think about it, the more I believe that it may have been funnier to post only a photo of the cereal box, with no commentary. Would that have been ironic? What does "ironic" even mean anymore? Somebody make me stop talking before one of my loyal readers commits suicide out of sheer boredom.

didn't all the profits from Flutie Flakes go to charity or something?
