The Rice Krispie Bar

It started with a needle pulling thread. Then a sea-monkey entered the conversation, followed by a priest, a rabbi, and a hooker.

Today's suggestion comes courtesy of Laura Hughes:

A bowl of Rice Krispies walks into a bar. She says to the bartender, "Cheerio!"

"Oh, Honey, not 'Cheerio.' You're toasted. Whenever you hit the white stuff, your bran turns to mush."

"I wish I were so lucky, Sam. Everyone knows I'm branless."

"I'm just saying you should be careful. It might feel good at first, but snap! Crack'll pop you in the head every time."

"Please, I'd never do crack."

"Marshmallow?"

"Now that'd be a treat. Anyway, I'll take two cans, Sam."

"Nope, no more. You have a problem."

"I'm fine, you silly rabbit. I'm only back so soon because I accidentally dropped the top to my last can. I stepped on the cap, 'n crunch!"

"No more. Here's what you should do, Honey: Comb your hair and get yourself a job."

Honey smacks the bar. "Quit toying with me. I said I'm fine. Now gimme some sugar. I can't bear to go on like this."

The bartender sighs. "Look, how long are we going to milk this joke? These puns are poor."

"Nonsense. They're gr-r-reat!"

Since this exercise has become a serial, more things will be slithering their way up to the bar. Next up: Jabba the Hutt. (And if you haven't done so yet, you can still make your own suggestion here.)

  1. Just give her the sugar! Before she goes fruit loops.
    Will be back for Jabba the Hutt.

    1. Oh, I'm sure she was fruity and loopy long before she entered the scene. But hey, everyone could use a little sugar now and again...

    1. Since I've taken four days to respond, perhaps you've already found the joke via the link in this post or by clicking on "Older Post" below. But just in case... it's here.

  3. This takes me back to Saturday morning cartoons.

    1. Hey, you're right. Those cartoons were interspersed with many a commercial sporting a cereal mascot. And often, they were filled with horrible puns (or maybe that was just Bullwinkle). Glad I could transport you back to your childhood (or, perhaps, just back to last Saturday).

  4. I'm really glad this idea went cereal. Uh, I mean serial. I figured talking cereal would have something to say for itself. Since you're raisin the bar, I'll have an Applejack and Quake in anticipation of your next Post. They are Pebbles of delight! *Chex in daily for updates* Such is Life.

    *Apologies for this... And thanks!

    1. Raisin... Chex... Life... Clearly, my mind (and my skills) are slipping; I could have easily included all of those in my joke as well. C'est la vie.

      Anyway, once again, Frankenberry much for the suggestion!
