The Rooster Crows: Waking up to Breakfast in America

IN THE LAND O’ THE NEVER NEVER FREE I can’t believe the many American breakfast deal packages I can vote for with a little pocket watch $$$:

Taste the rainbow!except you can’t. It is impossible to reach the rainbow on earth that comes from water particles and light waves in the sky. Even if he came back from the dead, Darwin isn’t going to find that missing link
The missing link is…missing! What would Darwin think?
I think I’ve found it! And surprise surprise its in the generic serial section. Note: the apple and cinnamon is naturally flavored
Classic Trix is back! GM CEREAL TRIX (whose first ingredient is WHOLE GRAIN) can be purchased at your local VONS for $4.49 circa Easter 2018
…and it just so happens that this is what’s on the back of that Trix box. Is it art? More relevantly: is it true?
However: at a different VONS location on 12-12-2018 I found the box shown above of Classic Trix which features “FRUITY SHAPES”. So just in time for Christmas the colors and shapes are resurrected! Now it must be art…

Why is a stag like a stick of butter? It’s a challenging riddle for sure…

‘The Hatter opened his eyes very wide on hearing this; but all he said was, ‘Why is a raven like a writing-desk?’

‘Come, we shall have some fun now!’ thought Alice. ‘I’m glad they’ve begun asking riddles.—I believe I can guess that,’ she added aloud.

‘Do you mean that you think you can find out the answer to it?’ said the March Hare.

‘Exactly so,’ said Alice.

‘Then you should say what you mean,’ the March Hare went on.

‘I do,’ Alice hastily replied; ‘at least—at least I mean what I say—that’s the same thing, you know.’

‘Not the same thing a bit!’ said the Hatter. ‘You might just as well say that “I see what I eat” is the same thing as “I eat what I see”!

“Have you guessed the riddle yet?” the Hatter said, turning to Alice again.
“No, I give it up,” Alice replied. “What’s the answer?”
“I haven’t the slightest idea,” said the Hatter.
“Nor I,” said the March Hare.
Alice sighed wearily. “I think you might do something better with the time,” she said, “than wasting it in asking riddles that have no answers.” (gutenberg.org)

BREAK(FAST)ING NEWS: according to this nifty infographic, some of America’s Presidents looked like their favorite food. It’s also worth noting that none of them–from George to Donald–reported any kind of cereal, butter, or syrup as their favorite food (although Gerald Ford likes waffles). Alive or dead, good for them: as reported by ewg.org and cnn.com, dozens of oat-based breakfast cereals have tested positive for trace amounts of the weed-killer RoundUp. General Mills authorities, general civilians, the FDA and the EPA and generally everyone else are divided on whether or not this constitutes a problem. If only the Surgeon General would issue a report on these matters to settle the issue. It’s not just oats and groats that are tainted: much of the corn in the U.S. is “RoundUp Ready Corn“. So watch out for those fish flakes–even though on 11-21-2018, the day before everyone’s Thanksgiving meal, the Public Broadcasting Station released this news hour showwhich may or may not be propaganda–revealing the Kellogg Corn F(l)ake story to be one of an “unlikely invention” which “birthed a multi-million dollar company” which “transformed the America breakfast” around the ideas of “health and wellness”. Since the opening line of that news special is It is said that roughly 350 million people ate a bowl of Kellogg’s® Corn Flakes® today”, obviously more people than the population of the United States on that day know that convenient desiccated corn products = your toasted golden Willy Wonka ticket to health. Why not skip the grinder and eat potato chips for breakfast (I do sometimes)? Why not go out on a limb with a leap of faith and eat raw (or to get fancy, buttered with syrup!) corn on the cob? Oh, whoops–that would obliterate the need for “industry” and thus also the funding for eugenics programs. I can’t help but wonder: are Chinese CRISPR babies going to be as crispy and fresh as a Kellogg’s® Corn Flakes® package?

Not exactly shredded wheat…Since cardboard is a great diet food, and since most of the $4.29 I paid for that box of Kellogg’s® Corn Flakes® is for the packaging with complimentary BHT, I might as well think outside the box and eat it too!
Since I’m not a fish and don’t have an appetite for flakes, I decided to feed it all to my volunteer potato plants (which are growing all by themselves!) Corn flakes also make great compost to grow ®eal corn!

According to a PBS “digital short” which is a part of a media series called “The Eugenics Crusade“, John Harvey Kellogg (co-inventor of the “Corn Flake”) is dubbed a “health reformer”. To really round it up (as if your head is not already spinning): in this article I personally pieced together how following the yellow brick (greenbacked) road of RoundUp brings you around to fascist beginnings with a eugenics twist. Is it really all about killing weeds? The most ironic thing of all: I have seen–with mine own two eyes–what happens months after a plot of land is sprayed lethally with RoundUp. Believe it or not…here it comes again: the weeds (i.e. plants) resistantly return, as if resurrected–not as advertised of course! Depending on your point of view, this may or may not be a good sign.

The Kellogg’s rooster isn’t a sickly green color for no reason

Jesus said to him, “Truly I say to you that this very night, before a rooster crows, you will deny Me three times.” —Matthew 26:34 NASB

Immediately a rooster crowed a second time. And Peter remembered how Jesus had made the remark to him, “Before a rooster crows twice, you will deny Me three times.” And he began to weep —Mark 14:72 NASB

Is this giant blue rooster in Washington D.C. as cocky as the giant blue horse Blucifer at the Denver airport? That horse is not unlike the one in The Temptation of Saint Anthony which came before it. Image: holycity.org

Therefore, be on the alert–for you do not know when the master of the house is coming, whether in the evening, at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or in the morning–in case he should come suddenly and find you asleep. What I say to you I say to all, ‘Be on the alert!’ Mark 13:35-7 NASB

Peter Pan crows like a rooster because he is “cocky” about his beliefs and also to alert a victory. He sits on a rock as he tells mermaids the classic tale of castrating Hook’s hand which he subsequently threw away into the mouth of Hades
