Puny Earthlings Snack Crackers

Now featuring new title which will cause total confusion to anybody trying to understand what the comments are talking about.

Basically a snack cracker version of the horrified civilians running around at Godzilla's feet trying not to get eaten. Cops futilely shooting their pistols, guys pointing in horror, mothers protecting their babies but all to no avail. They were previously uptown cosmopolitan shoppers and business people, now they're just a crunchy treat baked to perfection for true snacking goodness.

This idea was "inspired" by the amazingly clever "Doomed Armada Cereal" idea which gets my vote for best idea of 2008.

       [marked-for-deletion] echo - unless you've got some genuinely plausible explanation for how this works as a breakfast cereal, and how the tiny figures modelled out of wheat and oats start "futilely shooting their pistols ... pointing in horror ... protecting their babies" when you add milk.
hippo, Nov 18 2008

       I envisage some kind of board with sugar-coated figures, model buildings and relatively giant, possibly plastic, Godzilla, which you put in the bowl and pour milk on, dissolving the sugar and creating some kind of disaster, though not terribly Godzilla-esque, which you then eat.
nineteenthly, Nov 18 2008

       [hippo], he never said they start doing those things when you add milk, it could just be a "still life". Besides, who needs whizz-bang gimmicks in their cereal? As long as its bright and tasty and comes in wacky shapes and is guaranteed to be bad for you, its good.
Spacecoyote, Nov 18 2008

       You know those plastic farmyard animals you can get for children, horses, cows, pigs etc? I'm sure I saw figures of the same type, only instead of a farmyard theme, they were all fleeing civilians, similar to those described here.

       //I stoically await the bone storm that plagiarism like this so richly deserves.//   

       For those about to be [m-f-d]'d, we salute you.   

       (I like the idea, by the way, but it is a bit of an echo.)
Jinbish, Nov 18 2008

       [marked-for-deletion] - //Just like the other guy's idea only stolen//!   

       You may borrow a bun for the brief day or so that this piece of blatant plagiarism is allowed to exist.
wagster, Nov 18 2008

       You've got to love zen_tom's link. I'm particularly keen on the Angry Mob playset.

+ for the idea but I have to second the m-f-d, sadly.
DrBob, Nov 18 2008

       As I hang my head in shame I offer only this defense: Everybody in Hollywood does it. I know that's a lame defense but it's all I could think up on my own.   

       As exhibit A, I offer the above linked list of movie ripoffs (I stole that too) and throw myself on the mercy of this august body.
doctorremulac3, Nov 18 2008

       Come to think of it, little snack crackers would be a lot more appropriate. Grab a handful and stick 'em in your mouth. That's the way monsters eat terrified earthlings, not by scooping them up with a spoon. Make them about the size of Goldfish snack crackers. Don't know if you guys have them in England but they're about centimeter long and shaped like little goldfish obviously. These would be the same thing only in terrified earthlings shapes.   

       Puny Earthlings Snack Crackers. Crunchy snacking goodness now fortified with 50% more originality.
doctorremulac3, Nov 19 2008

       Ah, now that's much better!
DrBob, Nov 19 2008

       Yes, I'd also like to see pepperoni (or maybe pork scratchings) shaped into the tiny forms of the damned, I could then smite them individually for their sins.   

       Works with jelly babies too...ahh this may be cause for an idea of my own.
zen_tom, Nov 19 2008

       Each box of snack crackers can be cut up to make a fearsome Godzilla mask ?

       //Can you change it to snack crackers and I'll do you a warm, toasty bun//   

doctorremulac3, Nov 20 2008

       //Each box of snack crackers can be cut up to make a fearsome Godzilla mask ?//   

       Absolutely! King Kong, the T-Rex from Jurassic Park, the Cloverfield Monster, Larry King.   

       Collect 'em all kids! And tell your parents you'll start taking drugs if they don't buy you the whole set!
