    It was a gathering of the ten tribes at the Lion & Crown Public House in Allen,
    last night. Newbies the Terrible Two's signed on board and joined nine other
    seasoned regulars for some really clever question sets. Kudos to our quiz
    writers out west who gave us a nice spread of literature, eighties trivia and...
    Cereal? Well, you heard it hear first, folks.

    Our round three theme round concentrated on breakfast cereals, "Cereal Killer"
    being the titular pun, while round seven focused on the various shapes of the
    bits one gets out of a box of Lucky Charms. (It was magically inventive!) Not
    only was it a trip down memory lane, recalling old commercials and cereal box
    advertising, but it brought to mind how American television (and now the internet)
    has shaped our public perception regarding that meal we call "breakfast".

    One question in particular made Quiz Master Lou think about a film from the
    nineties called The Road to Wellville. An interesting piece based on a novel
    by T. Coraghessan Boyle, it told the story of Dr. John Harvey Kellogg and his
    forays into human health through diet (and other things) at Battle Creek,
    Michigan. Alan Parker made it into a subtle comedy. And now, I want a bowl
    of cereal...

    The return of Stealth Texas signaled a homecoming victory as well while Bar
    Guy's team made an auspicious second place win. Ninja Turtles early lead got
    diminished to an ending third position despite the fact that it was International
    Turtle Day. (Go figure!)

    That's it! I'm out! Have a great Memorial Day weekend!
