What's in a name?
Wheaties were created by an accidental wheat bran spill onto a hot stove in 1922.
It was named Washburn's Gold Medal Whole Wheat Flakes, it sold poorly and was going to
be discontinued, but at the suggestion of an employee in 1924 it was renamed Wheaties.

1924 Wheaties became the 1st mass marketed cold breakfast cereal in the world.
1926 Wheaties aired the world's 1st radio commercial jingle. (sung by a barbershop quartet)
1927 Wheaties sponsored radio broadcasts of the Minneapolis Millers baseball games in exchange
they were given a large billboard and on their first billboard was a box of Wheaties with their
new slogan to target sports fans...." Wheaties - The Breakfast Of Champions."

1934 - first athlete on a box of Wheaties - Lou Gehrig
1935 - first woman athlete on the box - Babe Didrikson Zaharias
1936 - first black athlete on the box - Jessie Owens
Most times on the box 18 - Michael Jordan

In the 1930s Ronald Reagan announced Chicago Cubs baseball games on the radio in Des Moines
Iowa using transcribed telegraph reports. In 1937 he was selected as the favorite Wheaties
radio sports announcer in the nation and Wheaties awarded him an all expenses paid trip to the
Cubs spring training camp in California. While there he did a screen test for Warner Brothers
leading to a film career...(leading to Bonzo)... leading to politics... to governor... to president.
All because a worker in Mpls, Mn. spilled a wheat bran mixture by accident onto a hot stove.

Washburn's Gold Medal Whole Wheat Flakes - a whole grain of wheat in every flake. :tiphat:

When an onion is cut, a chemical is released into the air. It irritates the lachrymal glands, causing them to excrete tears. Chewing gum while cutting onions prevents tears by forcing you to breathe through your mouth.Chewing gum before, during or after cutting onions promotes production of saliva. Saliva absorbs the vapors emitted by cut onions, preventing them from condensing on the eye and causing tears. It is best to start chewing gum before starting to cut onions, and to remember to breathe through the mouth while cutting the onion.
If you don't have any gum handy, pretend you are chewing some.

Why is pound spelled pound but abbreviated lb. There is no L or B in pound. Maybe the same spelling wizard who abbreviated ounce.

I’d rather walk the streets at night there than in Chicago or Baltimore.
