Omar Little Loves Some Honey Nut Cheerios
Thursday, May 8, 2008
My colleague Trisha, a wise woman from Imperial Valley who loves The Wire , just informed me about an interview in Newsweek with Amy Poehler. & The following exchange takes place between interviewer and Amy Poehler:
Q: What cereal are you going to have?
A: Right now I'm down with Honey Nut Cheerios because that's what Omar eats on & ldquo;The Wire & rdquo;
Q: Do you base all your food choices on television shows?
A: I don't know if you're a & ldquo;Wire & rdquo; fan, but on the show Omar travels far and wide and risks getting killed just to get a box of Honey Nuts. So I like to think it keeps me connected to the streets.
I just went to the Honey Nut Cheerios website ... lots of white people, upper middle class blacks, and the honey nut bee. & Their marketing team needs to show some respect for Omar Little and let him endorse their product. & Mad money to be made... street cred AND lower cholesterol. & See Omar's quest for Honey Nut below...
