At first glance, Rice Krispies aren’t the most obviously Discordian cereal. While each individual grain differs from its little grain buddy next to it, they aren’t all that different. A bowl of Rice Krispies is very uniform, boring, and beige. Worse yet, they don’t taste all that exciting unless you add stuff to them. They’re not bad, exactly, but without sugar, fruit, or the promise of a (mercury-)Free Toy Inside you’d never really bother to eat the stuff.
Don’t be fooled! There’s a lot of really interesting, and chillingly ominous, things going on here. Rice Krispies are the Trickster cereal, a cereal we Discordians can learn a lot from. Simply looking at them, dry and naked in a bowl, subjects us to their first trick. Do you think you’re looking at individual grains of rice that have been somehow inflated into a little krispie? HA! They’re nothing of the sort.
