Doing what I'm told

Mrs. Blogfoot has requested that I post something new so that she doesn't have to "keep looking at Britney Spears' nasty, wrinkly boob" everyday. So, in the interest of keeping the marital waters calm, let's talk about an old cereal from the 70's that I loved, but many people don't seeem to remember, called "Freakies."

Freakies was basically Captain Crunch with a different shape, brought to us by the fine folks at Purina. Who made pet food, by the way. The backstory was that all these weird little monsters lived under the Freakie tree, from which grew the cereal where "it ripened in the sun, becoming toasty and sugary." Another importamt aspect of this cereal was that the toys inside were better than usual for the time. In fact, I still have one of the magnets from it.

The quality of this clip isn't so hot. Sorry.

Once again, Mrs Blogfoot shows insight and more sanity than known by most mortals. And yet she married you... these be strange times.

I hear the 60's were kinda weird, too.
