Crispy Critters

Yesterday, I mentioned to Paul that every time I heard the word “indubitably,” I think of this commercial from the 1980s:

Never mind that “Crispy Critters” sounds like the name for deep-fried roadkill at a diner (or military slang for a burnt corpse), what’s most interesting about this cereal’s brief history is that it was debuted in 1987, 20+ years after it had initially failed (Wikipedia says so). It failed again the second time around.

At least it popularized Jimmy Durante for a whole new generation.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
