Thing That Annoys Me #313

Cookie Crisp: It's cookies for breakfast.

I'm cool with giving kids milk and cookies as a breakfast. You want them to inherit your trailer and cinder blocks, after all.

No, my beef is with the advertising team. At some point it wasn't cool to have a Cookie Cop constantly catching a Cookie Crook and his canine compatriot Chip.

First they ditched the Crook and had Chip running solo, which I can dig. Its the Scooby Doo and Scrappy Adventures of the breakfast mascot world. Fine. But then they went and reformed Chip. Instead of a cookie-loving sneak thief in prison stripes, now he is a pantless wolf in an itchy red sweater. You can actually see it itch.

Old Chip and the Cocoa Crispy Bear must be rolling in their 5-grain graves.
