QANTAS cycles through a range of Kellog's breakfast cereals, dished up in single serve bowls. On Friday's early flight from Townsville to Brisbane it was the turn of Special K. Milk doesn't sit well with me, maybe lactose intolerance (?), so I only use it sparingly which allows me to fully savour the texture and taste of the cereal of the moment. After much reflection, I'm prompted to ask exactly what is so special about Special K ? True to form, it tasted like sweetened, crisp cardboard, nothing more, nothing less. I conclude that there is absolutely nothing special about Special K. Just another marketing con job.
Not much different to the two-slice toaster we saw in Woolworths today - as if anyone would be stupid enough to buy a single slice toaster these days.
Last night on TV there was an advert for mattresses with gussetted pillowtops. What the hell is a gussetted pillowtop ?
