  1. The next great biopic features the story of Mikey, the Life cereal boy. After a short-lived successful run as an internationally renowned food critic, Mikey was eventually shunned by the food critic elite after realizing that he seemed to ‘like’ every food item he critiqued. Mikey quickly spirals into a dangerous world of drugs and crime by selling discontinued boxes of Honey Graham Life on the black market. Tagline: Mikey likes it! And by ‘it’ we mean crack!

  2. The cocoa puffs bird’s name is Sonny, btw.

    You could have a bunch of second-rate straight to DVD features using the mascots of the off brand cereals, like the kangaroo from Malt-o-Meal cereals

  3. what about what happens when a frosted flake falls in love with a special K and find that their boxes shun such a union?

    a tale of two flakes?
    frostyO and JulieK?

    im on too many meds
