Can we talk about Cheerios for a second?

Cheerios are important. Not only are they an important primary food group of toddlers, we wouldn't have donuts without them.

Cheerios might also be important to a lot of you bloggers who are amazing writers.

Many of you know Terra from Sitting on an Oak and she has a cool Cheerios giveaway going on, BUT more importantly she has information about a ridiculously cool writing contest from Cheerios as well.

If you could take a second and click here to go visit Terra and enter her giveaway that would be mighty sweet of you!

As for me, as soon as I finish writing my winning entry for this contest, I'm going to find someone to plow up my front yard. I'm thinking a doughnut farm could be a big money maker! I can envision the signs now..."Pick your own doughnuts...FREE coffee or cold milk with each 25 pound purchase!"


Please don't let my weird post scare you from visiting Terra and entering her giveaway.

She had absolutely no literary input into post and I'm sure she would just pretend she doesn't know me if she actually read this.

But even if she pretended she didn't know me, I would still like her...and because of that I really, really want you to visit her and leave her a comment.

To reward you for doing this, I am going to share a hilarious doughnut joke with you.


Knock, Knock!

Who's there?


Doughnut who?

Knock, Knock!

Who's there?


Doughnut who?

Knock, Knock!

Who's there?


Doughnut who?

Doughnut ask me that stupid question again.



Allrighty then!

Cute joke! Right? Right?

Oh, geez, quit sighing at me and go and visit Miss Terra.


Pretty please with a doughnut on top?

And just to encourage you to run over there a little bit faster, I leave you with this final joke...

But before I share it, I just have to tell you in advance that I'm sorry. This isn't meant to be offensive because, seriously, I have never met your mother and I'm sure she is really, really smart. It's just that my doughnut / cheerio joke repertoire was pretty limited...


Yo' Mama is so stupid, she poured a bowl of Cheerios and said, "Look, my alphabet soup spells 'Ooooo.

Okay. I'm slinking off now in shame. But please don't forget to visit Terra by clicking here.

My 7 year-old is going to LOVE that knock-knock joke!
My autistic 5 year-old can't say "cornflakes" (which is odd, because he can say "delicious", "hot dog", "let's go outside" etc etc...) so whenever he wants a bowl he takes a deep breath and belts out "CHEERIOS?" and I go running for the cornflakes. I'm like a trained monkey, and he knows it.

Jo said...

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

You are always good for a smile. I think that donut farm just might be a winner!

Holly said...

If you plant a doughnut farm, I will make you signs and banners! I am so using that joke on my kids in the am!

Amy said...

Should I be embarrassed that I laughed at not one, but both of those jokes?

I love Terra. she is wonderful, isn't she? I hope you win. We love the books in the Cheerios boxes, and how awesome would it be if I knew it was yours! I could send it to you for an autograph and everything. That would make up for me laughing at both jokes, right?
