Sounds yummy!

So I'm in the supermarket (are they still called supermarkets?) and I'm strolling (do people still stroll?) through the cereal aisle when I start noticing this phenomenon of store brands.

Store brands are when the supermarket makes their own brands and makes them look just like the national brands. And they're way cheaper. And they place them RIGHT next to each other. Huge money maker for the stores.

So I'm still strolling the aisle when all of a sudden I notice Crispy Hexagons! I don't even know what cereal they're ripping off! What genius named these?

Does anything sound less delicious than a Crispy Hexagon?

I love that IANO thinks that if he tells us what he bought at the supermarket, that'll convince us he was there. That's soooo a-cute. (How obtuse does he think we are?)

Dear Cake-

I don't think you're obese at all....you could maybe lose a few pounds, but obese? Nah.

Hexagon, won'tcha be my baby
Hexagon be my own
Got a hank of hair
And a piece of bone
Made a walkin', talkin'
Hexagone.
