My Twitter Experiment ~ Inspiration Via Tweet yields "Pissing in Cheerios" Post


I have been rather uninspired lately. My wit has been stifled by an invisible shield of goop. In an effort to keep my blog afloat I sent out a tweet.





I actually got a few good responses....





but the most inspiring tweet of the day came from Kadi Prescott @TheRealKadi...



So, "Pissing in Cheerios" is a rather inspiring topic for several reasons.  One, because it is naughty and two, because I love the saying "Who pissed in your Cheerios this morning?" or "Who pissed in her Cheerios this morning?".  It is a colloquialism adopted by many people to express a lack of understanding for someone's crappy ass mood.

The person using the phrase does not really think that the someone's Cheerios were actually pissed in, rather that their attitude and behavior reflects an experience similar to having had someone piss in their Cheerios.

While, I wouldn't personally want to eat Cheerios that had been pissed in, there is actually a term for those that consume urine.  Urophagia is the consumption of urine.  While there are no actual case studies using Cheerios, there is record of ancient cultures using urine for different healing purposes that are still practiced today.  I wonder if those still using these methods combine Cheerios with urine?  If they don't they should because Cheerios are quite yummy and I've heard they are great for reducing cholesterol.

    I'm Canadian and we say " who pissed in your Corn Flakes"... Maybe Corn Flakes are more popular than Cheerios here

    You are one bizarre blond for posting this! LOL! Thanks for clearing it up though, because I have never heard anyone ask, "who pissed in your cheerios?" And thanks for adding a new word to my vocab: urophagia. I thinks that's what my baby is doing in my belly right now.
