Ode to Cracklin' Oat Bran

When cookies for breakfast
seem like too much
and your diet requires
a fiberific punch
there is hope to be found
that is nothing short of grand:
a little blue box
of Cracklin' Oat Bran.

Now I know what you're saying
"That's for people who are old,
with bowels that are flabby
and covered in mold!"
Well I say to you all:
"You best not be hatin'.
It might not look all that great
But the proof's in the tastin'!"

It's like cookies in milk
but your colon takes a beating!
And if you're on a diet
it makes you feel like you're cheating!
The combo is perfect
for grandpa AND child!
So pour yourself a bowl
and drive your large intestine wild!

  4. Your blog name must be one of the most originals i've ever seen! Loved it!

  5. Cracklin' Oat Bran is supposed to be for old people?! I never knew that - it's my favorite cereal ever. I've always loved it. Now I'm craving it. And I'm stuck at work. ARGH.

  6. Something is the matter with you. I think you are officially old Al.

  7. PS - I only came here to shed a tear with you, and now this! BAH! ;) lol

  8. hey i need that! i'm old and i have all those things..... smiles, bee

  9. I've never been plagued by a sluggish colon. Quite the opposite, really. If I got so much as a whiff of that stuff at breakfast, I'd be sitting on a cluster bomb by noon.
    For those of you with a digestive tract like mine, I highly recommend Maude's advice to Archie Bunker: "Cream of Wheat and cheese. It's light. But it binds."

  10. ...Also known as Super Colon Blow Cereal.


  11. Ooh, I love Cracklin' Oat Bran, too! The first part is "crack" after all. That's why it tastes so good.
