Indiana Jones: The breakfast cereal

  (+15, -1)(+15, -1)
(+15, -1)
  [vote for,

If it's possible to make a breakfast cereal that expands slightly in milk, it should be possible to attach two pieces of breakfast cereal compound with different milk-absorption rates to each other so that this composite cereal bends when milk is added and one side expands more than the other. Then, if you create long strands of breakfast cereal with the high-absorption material alternating from one side to the other, you'll have a cereal which, when milk is added, will resemble a writhing cereal bowl of snakes.

       Snakes. Why'd it have to be the snakes?

       Do you get a novelty whip to eat it with? [+]

       Right up until the writhing snakes I thought it was going to be some kind of construction that had a 'secret' operation when milk was added...
Jinbish, May 29 2008
  

       We could make hard candy crystal skulls and put them in the cereal, with backing from the american dental association. The cracked tooth and filling market would go ballistic!

       Served in a monkey skull bowl.

       Cutting open the empty box on the dotted lines should reveal a gauntlet to get at the prize in the bottom.   

       [4whom]! I think you have something there!

       {images, of carefully replacing the cereal box with a like-weighted bag of sand on the grocery store shelf, flit through the mind.}
MikeD, May 29 2008
  

       No, no, [sans deux pommes frites]. The cereal needs to be ripped from the centre of the box by hand, to the sounds of ritual drum beats.

       That shameless self-promotion didn't take long!

       All perfectly relevant my dear chap. All perfectly relevant.

       [quatre qui] I am amennable to the rythmic drum beats but ya gotta follow the dotted line to the X to find the treasure. Every kid knows that, tsh.
Wait, come to think of it, every kid knows haw to shred cardboard with their bare hands too.

       Thanks [MikeD], and my apologies for sustaining your unhealthy addiction to this site.

       In keeping with the theme, the boxes of cereal should only be put on supermaket shelves when they are twenty years past their "sell by" date.

Within two hours it should completely unravel, leaving you wondering why they bothered to make it.
