A Proven Fact

Ok, in the sake of full disclosure, the actual passage is, “A clinical study showed that eating two 1.5 cup servings daily of Cheerios cereal for 6 weeks reduced bad cholesterol about 4 percent when eaten as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol.”… You know that’s kind of funny too.

    Kudos on bringing down an icon of healthful lifestyle choices! The KilljoyComics crew is all very proud. Long live Fruity Pebbles! This Cheerios scandal is real news. From now on, I expect you to CC the old team when you instigate societal upheaval. Perhaps you can take Kashi down next. “Now with real sticks and twigs” my @$$!!!

    [Now, if this had actually been “Kudos” (chocolate-swathed granola bars), or a beloved sweetened cereal with an adorable mascot, we’d be having a very different conversation. Back away from the Lucky Charms and no one will get hurt!]

    Even amidst the brilliance that is Rat Tangent, this strip and your commentary shine. Now that you’re a hard-hitting social commentator, we expect great things of you. Disney next? Bring ‘em down, I mean, don’t sell them the farm.

    …Holy clichéd metaphors, Batman.

    …Oh, that’s another one!
