Care For Some Puffed Mice?: #AwfulCereal Meme on Twitter

By Laurel Sutton

January 27, 2011

Yesterday on Twitter someone started a meme called #AwfulCereal. The point was not,  as many people mistakenly thought, to post the name of the cereal you happen to dislike – because honestly, no one cares about that. Really. They don’t.

No, #AwfulCereal was a JOKE meme: you make up the name of a really horrible cereal and post it to make everyone laugh. Additionally, the name should be a play on a current cereal. There’s no laughter in coming up with, say, Dirt Clods for a cereal name, but Puffed Mice (courtesy of the amazing Michael McKean) is hilarious.

I spent 20 minutes scrolling through Twitter to bring you the best of this meme. Enjoy!
