I think Cap’n Crunch was the most painful cereal I ever tried. It used to be a common choice when I was a kid depending on what toy came inside. One day I suddenly realized I really didn’t like it and started choosing cereal I liked to eat over the toy that came inside.
Cereal was always a race for me. I loved the crunch. If something happened where I had to leave my bowl for a few minutes I would just have to throw it out. Amazingly my son has the exact opposite approach. He uses his spoon to methodically push all the cereal around to give a uniform coating of milk. He then lets it sit until it achieves the desired “milkyness”.
The goal was always to have 1 raisin left for the last bite of cereal. It was tricky. Sometime I would get distracted and mess it up. Sometimes I would be too conservative and have 4 leftover. I could have enjoyed those 10 bites ago!
I was always curious about those “adult” cereals that were up high on the shelves. Lots of brows and tans instead of the bright primary colors on the cereal I would pick out. I remember being amazed at how they would come in a tiny box but somehow weigh twice as much as the cereal I would pick out.
Also, this strip is a tribute to Three Word Phrase. One of my favorite comics to read. Go check it out if you haven’t yet! It is the internet’s finest collection of poop jokes.
I’ve heard various claims by people that enjoy eating cereal with water or orange juice instead of milk. This sounds completely crazy to me but then again I haven’t actually tried it. The only alternatives I have tried are the almond/soy/rice milk varieties. Do you eat cereal with a milk alternative?
I hated the cereal prizes that were part of a series. “Collect all 8!” I didn’t eat cereal fast enough to ever get them all. I would only get 4 of the “speed demons” and 3 of them would be that dang boat. I want the motorcycle! Then I would spend a half hour the next few times we went grocery shopping looking through all the boxes to try and find an old one that slipped through the cracks and still had the old promotion running.

Police dad is also against speed reading, running with scissors and fast forwarding movies. Don’t even think about putting him on your speed dial. You can press all those numbers in sequence like upstanding citizen should. Microwave popcorn? Out of the question.
