Cap'n Crunch

When I was a little kid, I thought I'd join the Burger King Kids Club. The application said to ZAP! it into the mailbox, which is exactly what I did. I filled out the application, put it in an envelope, drew a ZAP! lightning bolt on the front and mailed it. No address, no stamp. I figured the post office knew what ZAP! meant.

I was wrong.

My application was returned to me, undelivered, and I was so utterly crushed that I never applied for the Burger King Kids Club again. In fact, I never sent away for anything else because I was sure the post office would fail me every time.

Three months ago, I tried again. I sent four UPCs to Quaker Oats for a "vintage" Cap'n Crunch t-shirt. I was sure it would never work since those UPC deals always seem to be scams.

But today? Today there was a package in my mailbox. A package containing a friggin' t-shirt! My faith in the world has been restored!

I think I just blogged about a t-shirt advertising a kids' cereal. Excellent.
