A call to arms.

Ok here it is folks. We enjoy entertaining you on a daily basis, we have made you laugh, cry, poop, hate students, love students and so many other things and we do it all for free. I guess you have always been thinking “What’s the catch”…but there is no catch. I, Steve, am just asking for a personal favour.

You see this evening I was in Tesco (A supermarket for our overseas pals) to do my weekly grocery shopping. I loaded up my basket with all the manly stuff for my cook, George Foreman, to weave his culinary magic upon. I stocked up on sausages, burgers, bread etc and after a quick stop at the yogurt aisle to laugh at people buying said non-food I moved to my favourite section of the store…the cereal aisle.

I work close to a 50 hour week including this blog and the rest of my free time is split between boozing watching football and hanging in the cereal aisle. I love spending a long time choosing which cereal will grace my cupboard for the week. There are just so many choices and I regularly break down in tears trying to decide.

My feeble mind was not ready for what I saw in Tesco this evening. I ran around in circles screaming Yes! Yes! Yes! After 36 members of staff tackled me to the ground I composed my self and picked up this box. Ladies and Gentlemen I gave you the greatest breakfast invention since some guy burned bread and proclaimed it as Toast. I give you The Lion Bar Cereal.

Look at that! Look at that! I knew one day a company would invent a cereal whose customer base would be solely myself, it was only a matter of time before my cereal obsession payed off. Today is that day. Now, this is where I need you… “Steves People”.

I understand that the demand for this cereal will be fairly low and this worries me. I have already had two bowls of this and I feel warm and fuzzy inside. It is amazing and I never want it to end. I work in a similar style store and I know how these places work. If it doesn’t sell it will be put on an end and sold off for nothing and will never come back into stock…THIS CANNOT HAPPEN! I can only buy so many boxes myself with the crappy wages the blog pays me. I am sick of giving sexual favours to the secretary for cereal money so I need your help. I don’t care how hot she is, it’s demeaning!

If all of you simply buy a box each week for a month Tesco will spring into action. More sales equal more stock. More stock equals more space. More space equals more Lion Bar cereal for me! Come on, I need this. Please?

So rise up and give back to the City Fathers…well just me but still, come on.
