Urine in His Cheerios?
Holy hell! I just read the letter from that "Brook" guy at Berkeley. Who killed his dog today? What in the world did he hope to accomplish by sending an email such as that?
Your reaction to it was obviously the correct one, but I can't shake the suspicion that he's simply a Discordian out to fuck with people. It would be akin to writing to the Special Olympics and stating, "Hi, I'm a paraplegic basketball player, and I must say that you guys are all retards and gimps, and your box scores are weak!"

Maybe he thinks I'm the one who convinced him to quit smoking yesterday.
Discordians at least tend to have a sense of humor about it, and always have a point to make: this guy's just being gratuitous.
Besides, have you ever read the list of ingredients on a box of Cheerios? I mean, trisodium phosphate is what we used to swab the deck with -- until the EPA banned it as being bad for the environment! Maybe that's what makes them stay crunchy even after you pour on the milk! At least urine, according to my friends who are into kinky sex, is sterile. I still won't be indulging any time soon. I'll stick to my Cheerios.
