Thank goodness I have a blog. All of the big questions that have burned in me for so many years can at last be asked, not to mention illustrated with high quality digital images.
Why does breakfast cereal packaging seem to be calculated to stir up the religious fanaticism that clearly lurks within American hearts?
Breakfast of the ancient Israelites!
Breakfast of Thich Nhat Hanh
and of vegan Buddhists everywhere!
Potato chips, pasta sauces, frozen dinners, canned soup, cake mix - no other packaged food product even comes close. Why breakfast cereal? There must be a reason. Probably the same reason that the the bumper stickers/t-shirts/buttons that proclaim "I do whatever my Rice Krispies tell me to" are so uncannily funny.
Or maybe I spent a few too many years in graduate school studying Religion.
