Cornflake Girl redux: In case you haven't heard the old story about Dr. John Harvey Kellogg and his cornflakes of libido-trasking... wlel, now you have. True story! (Kellogg is also said to have advocated the use of athames to combat excessive Feanorism.) Graham crackers were invented to serve a similar purpose (that's a confirmed and well-documented urban legend, whereas the corn flake legend is "probably true, but not corroborated by published statements"). If you ever have too many of these, just cancel them oot with some potato crisps (chips, as we Merkians call them). Or call your fwendly neighborhood Jedi to come over and "turn on the teunce", as a belly-dancing Nazgul once put it.


A survey of Dr. John Harvey Kellogg's anti-sex crusade - Yes, Dr. Kellogg did advocate regular yoghurt enemas. Odd. Wlel, I suppose it goes to show how one can be full of cwap.

My name's Dr. Kellogg,
I used to work in banking,
But now I've got a cereal
That really stops you --
My name's Dr. Kellogg ....

You have to interrupt the last line with the beginning of the first.  There's a missing word in the last line which is British slang for the activity Dr. Kellogg hoped to prevent ....

Oh, I see.
TEUNC is a lille too busy depilating its palms (and fingers, and feet) at the moment, and so I didn't quite comprehend the -- on first reading.

Acksherly, J. H. Kellogg ran a sanitarium (which could be colloquially construed as farming, though I think banking is a bit of a stretch). Whether yoghurt enemas tend to alleviate or exacerbate mental illness is also open to debate. Kellogg was the only American clitoridectomist I've ever heard of, though.

I realize that this rhyme is somewhat factually inaccurate, of course, but I and some friends wrote it as schoolboys (and it shows).

Another one was about our mad chemistry / maths teacher Mr. Roberts, who could seem a little bloodthirsty:

My name's Mr. Roberts,
I'm making a new film;
I pick up lots of first-years
And bake them in a kiln ....

He used to set more lunchtime detentions than any other teacher, and set you to write essays on subjects such as "the inside of a ping-pong ball" ... the imaginative writer could, I suppose, have submitted a drawing instead ....

Oh, so the Kellogg story is that (in)famous?
Amazzling.
I don't think I'd ever heard it before 1999 or so.

LOL - have you read Uncle Tungsten: Memories of a Chemical Boyhood, the Oliver Sacks autobiography? My dad got it from a fellow recently-retired chemist.

For some reason, this reminded me of the ping-pong scene in Jack The Bodiless.
