Just One Voice Changed this Nation

I have no doubt that Kelloggs will be thrilled to know they have redeemed themselves in my eyes.  Picture a boardroom full of executives throwing out accusations and pointing fingers and trying to come up with a solution to what they finally realize was a major flaw in the production of their cereal,
Raisin Bran.


Let me bring you back to November 6, 2010, which I call, The Great Cereal Killer Fiasco.  You remember it, don't you?  For my new readers, please let me introduce you to a time and place not too long ago.  It was an ugly place, a place that caused screaming in the streets and pitchforks, and lighted torches as the masses swarmed the Kelloggs Corporate offices in hope of bringing about change in this great nation.

Oh, maybe it was just me, I was upset.  In my own defense, let me tell you that this took place prior to my hysterectomy where they surgically removed my hysteria. 
I'm better now. 
I can just roll my eyes if I get upset and I don't do crazy things like I did on that fateful day.  Go ahead, look at it, I'll be right here waiting for you when you get back.  If you come back.  Here ya go.

November 6th, 2010

So.....as I said, they must have found my blog and been scared senseless because they have come up with a solution.  They kept the same amount of raisins but added some more crap that makes up for the fact that they didn't change the flakes (that still get soggy).

Raisin Bran EXTRA!

They have added dried cranberries, sliced almonds and yogurt clusters.  Now when I get a spoonful of cereal, I don't feel I've been cheated.  I feel that Americans should really start speaking up for the injustice in the world. 
"HELL NO, WE WON'T GO!!"
or whatever. 
My standing up to Corporate America made a difference and if it hadn't been for a little blog post on November 6, 2010, we would have still been eating that soggy bowl of inequity.
You're Welcome.

Obviously your power has gone to your head and you're going to start charging consulting fees, but congratulations anyway. There's a coup in Egypt, Libya and in the cereal bowl at your house.
