Politics: Count Chocula made me do it.

Via SayUncle, we learn that there are still people who think being an ignoramous should be a salaried occupation.

I must have missed where teams of black-clad SWAT goons from Kellog's are forcing Ms. Sherri-with-an-"i" Carlson, at gunpoint, to buy Super Sugar Blasts for her little future cake-eaters.

Look, when someone admits, in a sworn affidavit, that they have absolutely no control over themselves, their children, or their spending habits, don't know how to operate the Off / On / Volume knob on their television set, and can be forced to act against their will by a thirty-second teevee spot featuring a talking cartoon tiger, we shouldn't give them a million dollars; we should throw them in the Soylent Green vats.

"I must have missed where teams of black-clad SWAT goons from Kellog's are forcing Ms. Sherri-with-an-"i" Carlson, at gunpoint, to buy Super Sugar Blasts for her little future cake-eaters."

The situation is worse than that: Ms. Carlson is quoted as saying "Although I have a strict policy against junk cereals in my house ... this doesn't stop my children from asking me for them, especially after seeing enticing ads."

So she's making threats to sue because she objects to advertising for products she actively resists purchasing.

I'm hoping for Rule 11 sanctions, and Ms. Sherri-with-an-"i" Carlson to wake up one morning owing hundreds of thousands of dollars to Kellog's lawyers.

Soylent Green vats...or at least sterilize the little vermin.

It's one more pseudo issue generated by socialists behind the Center for Science in the Public Interest. News media outlets swallow them whole every time.

They had better not get between me and my morning bowl of Captain Crunch. I've been eating it for more than 30 years, I think. No cavities yet, Mom.
