Chris, you don't have to post this comment but I find the line on the bottom of that box extremely offensive, "Toasted 'whole' minority flakes."!!

Viola,

I'm sorry about that. Frankly, I found it off the mark, too. However, I didn't feel I had the freedom to change it since it's not my intellectual property. And the "low-fact" gag was just too spot-on.

I am the author of Modern Counterculture and I'm glad that you appreciated the Wheaties box. The comment regarding the minority flakes is not meant to be offensive. We wanted to completely redo the box and leaving whole wheat flakes didn't fit in very well. Naturally its satirical and such things should always be taken with a grain of salt.
