    Heh. I’m looking at the poor kid’s face on the “Potat O’s” and thinking: Priceless! Now I realize I’m looking at the wrong link. Not one of Worth1000′s better efforts. Oh, well…

    SNL spoiled cereal parody for me with the two masterpieces; Colon Blow (Phil Hartman, sigh) and Quarry (“It’s not baked, it’s MINED!)

    A few of those need unicorn chasers. Blorp.

    I especially like Toxic Blobby, Kentucky Fried Cereal and Rabbit Droppings. See also “The 25 Most Horribly Ill-Conceived Breakfast Cereal Ideas” from Cracked (via Cold Mud):

    Funny, I think the image you choose for the preview was actually stolen from here and not original material:

    which was previous on BB here:

    Unless I’m mistaken and Pete Oswald happens to frequent Worth1000. Otherwise that’s quite a shameful theft. Good stuff in the original submission.

    That’s right Shard! And Cereal Killers also has Bunyan Bits, the original wooden cereal:

    Well spotted, Shard — image replaced!

    Every time I see one of these cereal box rounds, I hope to gaze upon the cheery disposition of a “Porn Cops” box. Said spoonerismesque thing hasn’t happened yet, but if *you* do it, let me know. I’d be delighted!

    Or your lips will start to peel,
    And your eyeballs will fall out,
    And your feet will smell like trout”

    I prefere Vegetal-rabbit :-)

    Worth1000 seems to be full of really good photoshoppers… who have a poor sense of humor.

    Something Awful, on the other hand, seems to have ‘shoppers that use cruder techniques, but are brilliantly funny.

    Is this an overgeneralization?

  11. wparsons says:

    Chairboy, that’s pretty accurate. Though I’d also say many of the people on Something Awful are better technically than the Worth1000 folks.

    There’s also the small point that most of the better ideas (regardless of how well they are(n’t) executed) you see on Worth1000, Fark and other places have their genesis in the SA forums.
