It's not so Special, says that sultry babe at Angelweave:

WHERE'S THE FREAKING FIBER?

Less than 1 gram, they admit: if you need more fiber (and you probably do) you'd probably be better off eating the box and pouring the cereal into the bird feeder.

Come to think of it, when the musical Stomp played here, one of the participants, reports the Oklahoma Gazette, not only used a copy of the alt-weekly as a percussion instrument but actually stuffed pages from it into his mouth. From the Gazette's "Chicken Fried News" section:

[W]e have said for a long time that the Gazette offers food for thought, but we never looked at it as something you pour in a bowl and douse with milk.

I don't envision this idea catching on enough to expand Gazette circulation locally, let alone in St. Louis, but hey: it's fiber.

hey, from someone spending time in St Lo, let me say that I'd rather eat the editorial section than read it.

I finally figured out why you're supposed to eat fiber, and at the same time figured out why they don't exactly tell you how the fiber in your system works (what it does) on the commercials for food.

So the "Colon Blow" fake ads on SNL were, um, accurate?
