This broadcast was generously sponsored by the good folks at Mournful Oatmeal. Many people give up eating oatmeal when it’s warm and that’s why, in hot weather places, people tend to be dumber. They’re eating fruit loops, when oatmeal is what they need.
Mournful Oatmeal is nature’s way of reminding you that you are only passing through, and in the greater scheme of things, you are a temporary problem. You were more interesting five years ago than you are now and this trend is going to continue. You thought the song Long Black Veil was depressing? Just try our cereal.
Mournful Oatmeal. We put the real into cereal.
