The Wheaties Fuel Curse, Part III: Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

SoSG Eric Karros mocked the Wheaties Fuel Curse yesterday. He thought the whole thing was just a joke, perhaps just a crazy coincidence.

Well, look at the facts now:

Sock Monkey

Muno (from Yo Gabba Gabba)


Teddy Bear

(EDIT 8:20a--whoops; this shot is of Teddy Bear's friend, Rabbit. Try these--)

Mr. X

That's right, every one of the beings associated with Wheaties Fuel is damned to a life of misery and misanthropic mayhem. Just look at this last wave of once-happy childrens toys, turned into mangled animal chewtoys, broken shells of their former selves, crazed dismembering maniacs, or punted pigskin proxies. I wouldn't wish any of these fates on our dear readers.

The curse of Wheaties Fuel is real. Beware the Wheaties Fuel Curse!

I'm pretty sure that's a rabbit. Maybe the curse turned the bear into a rabbit?

Eric Karros said...

...and the rabbit seems to be winning. It seems to have taken the deer's antlers as a prize.

can somebody confirm that the Rockies pitching staff are promoters of Wheaties Fuel?

@Josh S: Oh shit, you're right. In my efforts to get in Luke Chueh, it appears I didn't Chuehs wisely. Let me edit this later.

Steve Sax said...

Edited. Thanks for the catch; I thought those ears looked a little large.

Josh S. said...

Damn. I almost wish I hadn't caught it. The new images are going to haunt my dreams.
