    Top ten bad cereal shapes

    Letterman would call this Top 10 rejected cereal shapes but he'd just be playing because he wouldn't really know what was rejected and neither do we so lets just work on "bad" cereal shapes.

    10. Triangle
    9. horse head, because it's not even cute and I bet it would look like a penis

    That's all I have so far.

    8. One of those -gon shapes, with more sides than a square, because then it's like geometry and kids won't eat it.

    Icosahedrons. We could make 'em out of anything and still use the slogan "100% Natural!" as long as we got that tie-in with D&D.
    Most of time, when people ask why something terrible happened, they don't realize they are looking for someone to blame.

    5. Any traditional Chinese letter because you wouldn't be able to read it. And I'm only allowing simplified Chinese because I'm liberal but that sucks too.

    Not so much the shape of Cap'n Crunch, but the size. The pieces are too big to be rectangles. All the different corners hit the roof of my mouth all willy nilly and it hurts

    For optimal eating enjoyment, you've gotta let Captain Crunch rest in the milk until it achieves that perfect amount of sogginess, without becoming too soggy.

    ^On a related note: bear traps.

    Electrical outlets, carving knives, and chainsaws would all be horrible because kids are impressionable.

    No one is going to want to eat a bowl of humping hippos.

    I have mixed feelings about making them in the shapes of vegetables. Imagine a box of Lucky Charms but with pink radish, yellow corn, orange pumpkin, and green cabbage marshmallows, and kibble in the shape of garlic and, for irony, barley. It seems like a good thing to associate healthy veggies with breakfast--but you aren't having them for breakfast and you're really going to set people up for disappointment later on if they decide to branch out from processed foods to produce.

    Pots and pans. Those would just feel really weird in your mouth.

    I would personally feel very uncomfortable with a bowl of teeth facing me in the morning. Gaah, I can feel the teeth grinding just thinking about it.


    We got it Bar. Nailed it.

    Nails would be another bad shape.
