I'm pretty sure you can still buy Cap'n Crunch.

But keep being butthurt by fake news.

Rumor has it that MO-CHELL is hoarding the last of the supply!

This is about the fifth time I've seen Michelle Obama referred to this way lately in wingnut blog comments. Anyone know why it's supposed to be an insult?

Or is it just one of those "Algore" things that only makes sense to people who move their lips when they read?

Woah, woah, woah! I was about to take leave and go buy a box, they aren't discontinuing the brand, just putting distance between the company and the brand because of crazy childhood obesity rates.

This brings up an some interesting questions.

Is the writer too dumb to find the Cap'n Crunch website with the google?

Is the writer naive enough to believe that Quaker would stop selling a highly profitable product due to some nebulous food police?

Is the writer aware of all these things, but just bullshiatting?

Indeed. It's been a while since I've been able to make so little sense of an article.

Well, you're dealing with people who think that calling a guy with an actual Kenyan name by his Americanized first name, and his Indonesian stepfather's last name, somehow implies he was secretly born in Kenya.

While I do find it kind of odd that the Quaker website pretty much makes no mention whatsoever of Cap'n Crunch (especially considering it mentions Life, which has a significant amount of sugar in it as well.. hell, its the second ingredient right after oat flour), the leaps this 'article' is making are pretty out there.

Cap'n Crunch is still made. Kellogg isn't getting rid of their popular cereals.

I'm confused about the Frankenberry comment... My local grocery store still sells Frankenberry, BooBerry and Count Chocula.

....no yummy mummy, though :(

As someone who walked down the cereal aisle a scant two days ago, with the Cap'n's mug gracing three different boxes (in two styles each - regular and "vintage packaging" box)...

WTFox?

Are you upset because the store ran out of Cap'n Crunch, so the stoners who come up with the "actual" news stories you "report" didn't get munchies? Is that what the biatching is all about?

Sheesh, they'll restock on Tuesday. Meantime, Funyuns are aisle 8.

Look, I'm only mildly fluent in Derp- I can make myself understood, but nuances can be tricky. However, I THINK that they are making a joke about how "Michelle" is a white name, and therefore they are making her name what they consider to be "Black names".

I am personally SHOCKED that I've never heard them make fun of the oldest daughter's name. Or maybe I haven't looked hard, because I really don't WANT to pass my Derp equivalency exam.

I think "Mo" = there is "more" of her = she's fat. Calling Michelle Obama fat is the new trendy insult from the derpier members of the Republican party.

Now I get the Malt-o-meal knockoff on occasion. Because I'm a masochist. I like having band-aids on my tonsils.

I was addicted to the peanut butter crunch growing up, though.

If this upsets you, then you are going to be really pissed when you hear all the stories on The Onion about the terrible things the democrats have done.

So, how does it feel to be the most ignorant and gullible farker ever?

It's a racist play on negro dialect by someone that will swear up and down that they're not racist.

How does the Cap'n manage to eat so much cereal, given that he has no teeth?

See? No teeth.

/Quisp is better. The exact same ingredients (though Quisp has more Yellow #5), and the saucer shapes don't give you crunch mouth so bad, so you can eat more of it. Plus Quisp the alien is much cooler.
