My first Rant....

So I thought I'd tuck into my first bowl of Special K since leaving Switzerland. Filled the bowl, poured the ice cold milk and prepared to take my first crunchy bite.
As I took my first bite there was a sense that something was not quite right. This wasn't the same as my last bowl of SK. I looked to my full spoon for some sort of explanation only to see what looked more like mutant rice crispies.

There was no crunch, they went soggy straight away.

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo !!!

I would have rather found a rat on my spoon and know that further bowls of SK would be as I remembered them!! CRUNCHY.

WTF?? Were Kelloggs afraid that someone might bite into a particularly crunchy flake and injure themselves? It's not right I tells ya.

I need to lie down now and think of the implications of this event.

I GOT JIPPED!!

Sniff...sob..

See, all that time you complained about high Swiss prices, you didn't realise that you really were paying for Swiss quality!

Not bad for a first attempt.

A better subject and the correct forum would have got you better marks.

Re: My first Rant....

Special K hasn't been the same since they changed to bigger "flakes".

Re: My first Rant....

There's me thinking the thread was about an angry UK band. I was sorely disappointed..

"The band holds that the drug references within their music reflect the nature of current times, and the removal of such references would deteriorate the meaningfulness of their work"

A bit like the Kelloggs really..

Re: My first Rant....

Since they went soggy, you could shred the packet into bite size pieces and use those instead. Possibly far more nutritious than the contents in any case.

Something was not quite right.

Too right it ain't right....Special K ain't no food for dudes.

Go and lie down and think about where you can get some breakfast cereal that's gonna feed that Y chromosome a little bit

Oh. My apologies. I should learn to read more.
