I Weep for the Youth of America. . .

It seems some brilliant men have found a new way to fleece the unwitting college students of America by opening cafes that serve nothing but. . .wait for it. . .cereal.

Behind glass-door kitchen-style cabinets at Cereality are 30 varieties of brand-name cold cereal. Customers order from "cereologists," whose most popular mix is two 8-ounce scoops with one of 36 toppings, plus regular, flavored or soy milk for $2.95.

Also offered are cereal bars and made-to-order cereal smoothies and yogurt blends.

"This is great because you can try all different kinds and not have to buy the whole box," said Penn freshman Erica Denhoff, 18, as she munched on a healthy concoction of Quaker Oat Squares, Corn Chex and yogurt flax bark with skim milk. "I'm on the track team. ... I eat cereal for breakfast and for a snack if I need energy."


A mere $2.95 for a bowl. . .how can you beat that bargain? To quote David Cross, "The terrorists hate us for our freedom?. . .I hate us for our freedom."
