A cereal imposter: Is Cap’n Crunch really a captain?

Another case of stolen valor?

After over 50 years of reported service, the U.S. Navy said Wednesday that Cap’n Crunch, one of the Navy’s most recognizable captains, has no record of service with the military branch.

    CNN calls this political news and wonders why their ratings continue to plummet?

    This should be presented to the car thief/illegal gun owner so that he can investigate. Now that he looks like the complete fool he is he needs something even more senseless to keep him from continuing to do nothing but waste tax payers money.

    And the dumbing-down of the American people continues. I see that CNN is doing their fair share...

    Nothing wrong with a little humor. Beats reporting about that loser Obama and his cronies that are messing this country up.

    Make up your mind, CNN: Drudge? Or post-AOL-merge Huffington Post? Or maybe just a boring version of Buzzed?

    Actually, I wonder if this story was a super-subtle form of "sponsored content".

    Anyway, wow.
