First Debate of The New Year

It’s kinda slow on the trading floor today.  This chick has an extra large box of Apple Jacks on her desk.   As le cereal connoisseur that I are… I went on to talk about how the cinnamon toasty bites were always one of my favorites growing up – but that was back in the day when they were all one color.  ORANGE!

Well the chick said that they have always been multi-colored.  “Not!” I said.  “The jenks was one color not this milti-deal.” 

 She said I didn’t know what I was talking about.  To which I asked, “And how old are you?” 


“Puuulease what do you know about the history of Kellogg’s, General Mills, Post or anything else for that matter. ”

That is when one of the traders from the back chimed in, “I have eaten at least one bowl of Apple Jacks per week for the last 35 years.  I assure you that they were always two colors.” 

 “Bullshit!” I said, I know my damn cereal and imma look it up!

Sure enough… according to Wikipedia, “Originally, all Apple Jacks cereal pieces were orange and O-shaped, although they have become brighter and more orange colored over the decades. In 1993, O-shaped green pieces were introduced.


I told them to never question the cmac on cereal! 

To which the 35 year eating Apple Jacks man said, “Hey you got a series 7?  I need some help!”

This is going to be a great year!
