And white (FARK told me so), American college students are preventing the infrastructure to bring these sweet, sweet oats from being built. Fark you, America. I'm done.

Damn I can't complete someone said this before I did.

Btw, I can totally get behind a Cheerios pipeline, as long as there is a milk pipeline right next to it.

You need to transport the Crackin' Oat Bran through the same pipe to prevent blockages.

Americans are too into alternative grains for that to work. People are convinced quinoa is the future.

I guess inserting a poo joke in here would be totally redundant.

That would generate lots of greenhouse gases.

Tell you what America, send us the peanut butter cheerios again, and we'll send the oats. Deal?

At first, when I read the headline, I thought it said "Cheetos" shortage and I was very concerned.  Now, not so much.

Pipeline will never happen, because if it goes to Texas to be refined, there will be no tax revenue.

The Progressive Conservative government cut the rail system to the bone, and the Conservative (REFORM!) party also cut the rail system.

You Americans should go have a stern talk to them about that.

Great. Now I have to buy my Cheerio prescriptions in Canada, too.  Thanks, Obama.

Gotta love the corn subsidies, where in we use tax payer money to pay for something to be so plentiful we don't grow enough OATS anymore.

Yes, but it's all part of the seasonal carbon cycle, so it's okay (no net increase in carbon emissions).

As long as it doesn't affect my Safeway Toasted Oats, I won't panic.
