And now for something completely different: Cap'n (Horatio Magellan) Crunch

Capn When I was younger, I used to eat Cap'n Crunch cereal. That is, until it made me sick, and then I stopped eating it in favour of Count Chocula cereal.

Cap'n Crunch, the character, was created by Jay Ward, the same animator responsible for the Rocky & Bullwinkle show.

Well here's a little known fact: The full name of Cap'n Crunch is Cap'n Horatio Magellan Crunch. Captain H.M. Crunch.

Now you know. And knowing is half the battle. (Know where those lines come from? You'll get some Whuffie bucks if you guess it in the comment section.)

Yes, that is correct. 200 Whuffie bucks for you, Matt. Please spend them wisely.

Peter, you are definitely working too hard!

That is not true, Gerry. This is important news for those of us who ate plenty of Cap'n Crunch in our lives. Also, Cap'n Crunch is in favour of tax cuts and eliminating the pay-per-vote welfare scheme. That's a well-known fact.

"Also, Cap'n Crunch is in favour of tax cuts and eliminating the pay-per-vote welfare scheme. That's a well-known fact."

Let's find him an open Senate seat for him in 2010 and plan to run him for the GOP presidential nominee in 2016.

I think he'll do very well; the Republican base are suckers for a military man.

"Indeed, the name of Cap'n Crunch Crunch Berries cereal was called Horatio Magellan until 2007."

Use-mention distinction! Use-mention distinction!

I think that Ted Byfield knew him when he was just Able Seaman Crunch.
