Get a little file, a small propane torch and make your own.

OR go in the cornflake shaping business and make them for others.

Cornflake prospector? (panning boxes of cornflakes)

about paying $12 more for gas to take his kids to a Farm Show to show their 4H project.

The people that bought the cornflake are going from Texas to Virginia "to pick up a cornflake"

...especially the north and east state lines. I don't think the flake in the story came from the box.

this could be your way to make me a fortune before the cereal craze loses momentum.

I have an entire box of cheerios that look like powdered doughnuts!!!


I need a little start up cash. from recent reports you may make over $1000. that's right: ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS !!!!!

I currently am willing to share my fortune by taking yours.

I am offering wise investors the opportunity, if they act NOW, to purchase individual cheerios for only $5. that's right: five dollars.

the potential IS possible and the rewards ARE justifiable.

the first LUCKY twenty-five wise investors will receive an additional cheerio for only $4.99 if you only buy fifty.

this ASTONISHING RARE OPPORTUNITY will only last as long as I stay ahead of the lynch mob that is forming from my last UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY;

wheaties that are identical to corn flakes.

TIME'S A WASTING, DON'T SAY LATER WHAT YOU COULD BEING SAYING TOMORROW.

LET'S GO !!!!!


Happy Easter!!!

Georgia Toast

One Saturday at the usual breakfast scene one of our crowd shaped the state of Georgia with a piece of toast he was eating. Someone else said, "Give it to me, I'll sell it on EBay." Sure enough he did and it went for about $25. The shape of the toast wasn't even caused by chance and yet someone was willing to pay far more than it was worth. EBay sure can bring out the kooks.

...in Atlantic City that buys crazy things like that on Ebay. It makes for good cheap advertising when the news media picks up the story.

Any private citizen willing to shell out cash for a piece of toast that looks like the Virgin Mary or whatever simply has too much money.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
