Lame cereal box promotions live on!

Witness the giveaway on the back of the family-sized package of Honey Bunches of Oats that came into our house this week. Is that quaint or what? Would you want this crew showing up at your door? Can you think of 99 people you’d call up to come over and have breakfast with the cast of the “One Spoonful Tour,” a traveling freak show that pushes the stuff for a living? What Madison Avenue psycho came up with this campaign?

(Full disclosure: Honey Bunches of Oats is among my favorite foods.)
