 1. Cereal companies that take the word "sugar" out of the name of their
    products in an attempt to make us think they're more healthy,
    while the cereal is still the exact same stuff.  (e.g. "Sugar Pops"
    ==> "Corn Pops", "Sugar Smacks" ==> "Smacks", "Super Sugar Crisp" ==>
    "Golden Crisp")

 2. Dickhead roommates who lord it over you because you eat sugar cereal
    and they eat Meuslix or some other crap that has just as much sugar
    as your cereal but pretends to be a "natural" cereal when we all know
    that the only cereals with low sugar content are Shredded Wheat and
    Grape Nuts.

 3. Grape Nuts:  Who the fuck ever decided that gravel would make a good
    breakfast cereal anyway?

 4. Ghostbusters Cereal: Why did they take this off the market?  It was
    clearly a superior product.  The #1 ingredient was sugar, and the 
    #2 ingredient was marshmallows (the #1 ingredient of which was sugar).
    It also made a good party snack.

 5. When you're all ready for that big bowl of Cocoa Krispies and you 
    go to pour the milk over it and (glop glop glop) out comes the chunky
    spoiled milk.  If I wanted curds in the whey, I'd take over Saddam
    Hussein's job.

 6. Those little individual packets of cereal.  Who were these things made
    to feed, munchkins?
