Straws made of cereal

I went for a trip to Wal-Mart yesterday because I'm working on a new Action Figure Makeover and needed to grab some new shades of nail polish. I'd completely forgotten it was the 15th of the month, and thereby would be filled with people with freshly cut welfare checks. Not that there's anything wrong with that, I'm just saying, place was freakin' packed. Reading, PA used to be known for its railroad and outlets, but now it's mainly known for having a higher crime rate than Philadelphia. It wasn't much of a surprise that I witnessed some cops arresting a pair of shoplifters as I entered the building.

I proceeded to scoot my cart around picking up nail polish and checking out the toy aisle. I dug a 2-disc "Best of" He-Man set out of the $5.50 DVD bin, which I think it about as far as my fandom as MOTU goes. I like the toys more than the original cartoon series, some of those episodes were boring as all hell. It's like they didn't even try to make the characters have any depth.

I entered the grocery section to pick up some essentials, and stopped to stare at new products at the end of the cereal aisle. I stared and stared and stared, wanting to buy them, knowing I shouldn't eat them, remembering what happened the other night. To make a long story short, I ate one of those Snickers from my article the other day even though I don't eat a lot of sugar, and really haven't eaten anything bad in a fairly long time except the occasional taste-testing for blogging purposes. To top it off, my brother brought Chinese food home for me and I'm not sure if it was just so greasy my lettuce-munching digestive track physically could not handle it or if I got food poisoning, but either way I woke up in the middle of the night in such intense pain I seriously thought my organs had ruptured and I was dying.

I don't want any more sugary snacks around me right now.

But I did find pictures online so you can see what I'm talkin' bout. They're straws made out of cereal. It's like a cereal appetizer, you stick it in your milk and drink it up and get delicious Froot Loops or Cocoa Krispies flavoring. Like sucking up cow secretions with an unfilled Piroutte. I bet it's even better with flavored milk -- chocolate with the Krispies and strawberry with the Loops. I could see these being unwrapped and eaten as a snack, especially among those weirdos that like their cereal dry.
