    Are you kidding? Ghosts have better things to do than that like arranging letters in alphabet soup.

    Anyone remembering the movie Muppets in Space where Gonzo really sees his Alpha-Bits cereal spelling a message (when it turned out to be his own kind communicating with him)? Or how about A Goofy Movie with the “Hi, Dad” alphabet soup Max had?

    That Ouija brand cereal can be pretty creepy.

    “To be or not to be, that is the gezornenplat.”

    She: “My Alfa-Bits are haunted! They keep spelling out OOOOO!”

    He: “You’re eating Cheerios.”

    He’s got an infinite number of monkeys and typewriters in his cereal bowl.

    One of my jobs, I had to run a script that automatically configured network equipment. The script generated random passwords. The program running the script showed what was happening. One time, in the middle of a password was the “big F word.”

    I haven’t eaten a bowl of Alpha-Bits since 1979. They still make it?

    Scientific American actually address this exact kind of scenario today, in yet another odd coincidence:

    I had a simular experience, I read a message in my cereal that read OOOOOO. Then I realized I was eating Cheerios.

    I don’t think they make Alpha Bits anymore. Can’t find them anywhere.

    And that my friends is a keeper as a demonstration of both the principle of expected values and the idea of completeness in probability. (i.e. in order for the sum of probabilities to sum to 1, somethin MUST happen)

    I had “dog” spelled out spontaneously with the cereal once. Not as mind blowing.

    I calculated it, and it’s roughly a 1 in 141,167,100,000,000 (about 150 trillion) chance. Since FoxTrot has been going since 1988, that’s 33 years, plus 15 years for before the strip (since he was one year old), so Peter eats roughly 2,940,981,300,000 (about 3 trillion) bowls of cereal per year. Divide that by the number of days in a year, and you get 8,051,967,967.15 (about eight billion) bowls of cereal per day. This means that he somehow eats 5,591,644.42163 (about six million) bowls of cereal per minute, or 93,194.0736938 bowls of cereal per second, 24/7.
