Cereal is a man’s food – no women allowed


By web gangsta | Published:

A good bowl of cereal and Saturday morning cartoons were a rite of passage for many growing up in the 70’s and 80’s. Today’s kids don’t know what quality kids-oriented TV programming was, since everything now has to be sanitized to ensure that nothing is directly marketed towards kids.

Yes, many people are afraid of clowns.  They call it “COULROPHOBIA”

Even mentioning the word “clown” can bring some people to tears, as if they’re being tortured by a clown.
