In a surprising turn of events, Wheaties, the cereal that’s adorned with champions since 1918, decided to rethink its choice of athlete for their iconic cereal box cover this year. Initially, Megan Rapinoe was the chosen one, expected to return from Sweden with another World Cup victory. But life has its curveballs, and this time, Rapinoe missed an open-net kick and found herself returning with a different kind of trophy – the “heartache of defeat.”
General Mills Chairman Joe Barron chimed in on the decision, stating, “We had to take a step back and reevaluate our selection of Ms. Rapinoe this year. After all, we have a strict policy of only featuring champions on our boxes.”
Rapinoe didn’t take the news lightly and even threatened to sue the company for “image loss.” It’s worth noting that she may have forgotten that she was the one who tarnished her own image, not a cereal company.
In a surprising twist, General Mills is now considering Riley Gaines, who recently won a medal in Texas for her “unfettered bigotry.” She proudly took a seat next to Governor Greg Abbott, and together, they championed a cause that ensured young women like her won’t have to settle for a fifth-place tie again.
Gaines herself commented, “Thanks to this groundbreaking legislation, I may just become the next Tomi Lahren. Although, let’s be honest, Tomi doesn’t have the… assets that I do.” Lahren attempted a comeback by mentioning something about Riley’s eye placement but was promptly shut down with a single reference to her “fivehead.”
It’s truly a remarkable day when someone like Rapinoe faces consequences for holding political views that the right disagrees with. Ah, the blessings of America’s diversity and differing perspectives! 🏆🥄🇺🇸
