Dangerous Weed Killer Ingredient Found in Cheerios, Quaker Oats and Other Breakfast Cereals - Newsweek

If I buy a box of a certain Kellogg cereal and find out it’s recalled because one of the ingredients also happens to be used in weed killing and a plaintiff claims the cereal gave him cancer,

1) Can we then accuse Kellogg of being a Cereal Killer

2) If I want to know if my cereal brand of choice is affected, why don’t they just list the bad cereal brands with a unique number and then print the number on each box? It could be called a Cereal Number. I can check the cereal number to identify my box.

3) Pot killing...I mean Weed killing cereal ingredients’ defendants should prove victorious in court because they reduce # of deaths due to being stoned to death.
This is a true statement. What I mean by this is...a death due to cause “cancer” reduces the conditional probability of death due to the being casted a stone in a capital punishment jurisdiction.

Why do Norwegian warships have a bar code painted on the hull?

The sole criterion for the List is whether I have a reflexive reaction of wanting the punch the person doing whatever. This relates not only to tortured puns in contexts I wasn't expecting, but also unexpected Zardozen and similar affronts (RAND()). When I expect the behavior, I generally don't have a reflexive reaction.


I saw this joke in a joke thread on facebook, and thought it amusing. I don't mind puns when they're safely containerized from civilization.

Like, I really like Pearls Before Swine, and almost all its humor comes from extremely obvious pun setups.

(there's also humor from Pig and Rat having different worldviews, but that's a different level)

so you only like puns that are porcine themed? That seems rather boaring
