It certainly won't be a 'gobble-gobble' for General Mills Corp. products.
GM has issued an apology for inserting CD-ROMs of the Bible into 12 million boxes of Cheerios cereal (can you believe it folks?).
General Mills twitters nervously that they are really, really sorry, but they "didn't know" that the CD-ROM promotion included ramming a religious doctrine down their customers' throats. Greg Swann, founder of Rhinosoft Interactive of Wisconsin, which helped to create the CD's for the promotion, crows that GM's protestation of innocence is "a flat-out lie".
Since it was also announced this week that GM will purchase Pillsbury Products, we are looking forward to the day that the Pillsbury Doughboy giggles, "Well, Praise the Lord!" when poked in his chubby little belly. (Some could argue that Gerry Falwell has the schtick down already.) Then again, rather than just squawk (<--- Link for your comments to GM) about it, maybe we'll just choose to eat something a bit more easy to digest for breakfast from now on...
