Since 1918, the General Mills company has put champions of the sporting world on boxes of its Wheaties brand cereal. This year, the space was reserved for Megan Rapinoe, who was expected to come home from Sweden with yet another World Cup win.
Instead, she came home a loser, with her tail between her legs, after missing an easy kick on an open net. The game wasn’t all she lost, however.
“We had to re-evaluate our position on using Ms. Rapinoe this year,” said General Mills Chairman Joe Barron, “We only put champions on the box.”
Rapinoe wasn’t happy at the news, threatening to sue the company over “loss of image.” She seems to forget that she did that, not a cereal company.
General Mills may instead go with Riley Gaines, who just won a medal in Texas for unfettered bigotry. She sat next to one of the Dunning Kruger Times’ favorite people, Governor Greg Abbott, and made sure other young women like her never have to tie for fifth again.
“Thanks to this landmark legislation,” said Gaines, “I should be able to increase my following enough to be the next Tomi Lahren. Only Tomi doesn’t have the ass I do.” Lahren fired back something about Riley’s eyes being too close together before being solidly put in her place with a single mention of her fivehead.
It’s a great day when someone like Rapinoe gets punished for having political views the right disagrees with. God Bless America.
