    i'll take one of those any day

    i don't eat cereal because i don't really care for it, but i must say, four bucks for a box of cereal is unacceptable.

    I remember when capt' crunch had those hotwheels cars, those were the motherfuckign shit, i remember haveing a black porshe,

    how about the rings, and sometimes they even brought little lego sets, like a small car or something (isnt that hazardous).

    Because the fat cat's at the top decided it was much more profitable to make kids buy five boxes of cereal, clip the boxtops and send in an additional $8 for some cheap plastic Finding Nemo toy that urps or something.

    that and someone probably sued because their lame brain kid ate the prize and choked or some such incident i'm sure.

    now days you open a box up and you get a spinning top made out of cardboard or a promotional thing saying "collect 4 tokens send away and well send you a toy/prize" back in the day they toy was given for FREE and it wasnt made out of cardboard.

    For the finding Nemo toys, my mumsie went round the supermarket ransacking all the boxes without buying them, needless to say we have the whole collection now...
