If that cereal is so bad, why are they feeding it to their ONLY child?
You know, I’d definitely try a bowl of that!! Crunchy-on-the-outside and chewy-on-the-inside? Sold!
Dad just help your great son get the beanie quicker.
Did I hear “chocolate” in there somewhere?
If Calvin and Hobbes were in a cereal commercial…
Mom! Don’t you realize you’re giving Calvin permission to binge eat four boxes worth?
Madison Avenue, here I come!
When I go for oatmeal, it is either maple and brown sugar or walnut/date/raisin. As for toast, it depends on the bread, but toppings are either butter and cinnamon or baked beans. HERBAL tea also varies.
…and it makes its own gravy! Just add milk.
Hard to convince sane people to consciously try for type 2 diabetes!
Hey, oatmeal w/dark brown sugar and milk is one of my favs.
Is Calvin pitching cereal or chocolate chip cookies?
Oatmeal, boiling water, splash of milk, touch of salt, lovely…
He’ll be sleazy promoter when/if he grows up.
Nice to hear Mum giving Calvin a good work ethic!
And we wonder why so many people land up with Type 2 Diabetes. Been there, done that and now I must regret it for the rest of my life. I just hope that I won’t have to lose a leg one day. LET A WORD TO THE WISE BE SUFFICIENT!
Mom may regret telling Calvin that one!
If this goes to it’s inevitable conclusion the beany will be very tiny.
That kid has seen way too many television commercials.
I wonder if mom and dad have considered changing his cereal to something less sugary? Not for his health, but for theirs.
Just pour several boxes into a large plastic storage container and then send in the box tops. Problem solved. Calvin can eat the cereal at his leisure.
America is the weird country with unique food for breakfast. In Japan, fried rice for breakfast is not unusual. Even Europe’s “Continental Breakfast” normally does not consist of chocolate-covered sugar bombs.
Mom understands the score better.
If Calvin’s and Hobbes’ pictures were on a box of cereal, what would it be called?
Pssst, Calvin, tell them about all those essential added vitamins they are missing.
As if Calvin’s not wired up enough. He needs all that sugar like a hole in the head. In a few years Mom will wonder why Calvin he has tooth decay.
I’ve been there, Dad, and it’s not all it’s cracked up to be. Still better than the alternative, though.
I agree with dad. Just not right. I have to have flavored oatmeal with bran cereal.
And they wonder why he is hyperactive. Hmm.
OK Mom….if you insist
Quisp (spelling?) always had the best toys AND I loved the cereal also. A win win! Quisp was like Captain Crunch but it would get soggy, just right! Mmmmmmm
Before the 1920s, most people, at least in North America, ate oatmeal and porridge for breakfast.
But in 1924, a bacon company hired Eddie Bernays to lobby doctors to promote folks to start having bacon & eggs.. the rest is history.
Keep packing those carbs away, the folks at Lipitor, Metformin, and Lisinopril are counting on you.
