At least this explains why I gained weight. I was born the same year as KFC and Mickey D's. Perhaps I should take more advantage of those other 1955 babies, Special K and stewed tomatoes.

Kiwi fruit was invented?

Whoever invented puffed wheat should get their ass kicked. That stuff has no flavor and doesn't fill you up at all. What a waste of time eating that shit! Give me a big ol' Krispy Creme donut and some coffee and I'm good.
