A melting pot of cereals

Posted in Meals by Ulf on March 19, 2009

I realized that I have red cereals, whitish cereals, black cereals, yellow cereals and a variety of brown cereals:

Do you want to know what these colors reminded me of? ;-)

At some point my room mate came into the kitchen, that’s why there is a little cut in the video. He is Hispanic. When I talked to him afterwards, he told me that Hispanics in the US would sometimes say “Keep it brown” or “Stay brown”, so they refer to them selves as “brown”, too. To I should have used the light brown cereals for referring to the Hispanics while using the dark brown for the Indians.

For stories about other melting pot besides the US, look at Wikipedia.

    So ROFL LOL. Ulf you are the best. But when you talked about you Indian workmate (I think it was) you referred to the piece you hold on your hand. Was this a symbol for, you’ve eaten him? (I just had to think of the “Hamburger ist Berliner” :) )

    Oh, and you know what I always had to think of?
    You called it “The melting pot” so I thought the end would be, to put milk on the cereals and to leave it for a while… Then everything dissolves in the liquid and becomes the same colour…
    I think this is the next step of your story and it’s already going on…
    Mix it baby ;)

    Ulf dear,
    You’re fracking hilarious. You should have mentioned in the beginning of your little spiel that the white people gave the red people blankets contaminated with the small pox virus and killed off many, many, many of the red people (you could have used Frosted Flakes to demonstrate this =) ). The company responsible for this stupidity is known as the Hudson’s Bay Company (also known as “The Bay” or “HSBC”); funnily enough it grew to be (and still is) one of the biggest department stores in Canada! Ahhh Canadian history, like most national histories, its sickening!
