  6. “Totes Amazeballs” Cereal Speaks for Itself, Exists

    Apparently it doesn't take much to get Kellogg to make you your own cereal, at least if you're famous. Tim Burgess, lead singer for Charlatans was able to make his dream, "Totes Amazeballs", a reality after merely tweeting a joke about its existence. When that existence of that tweet made itself apparent to Kellogg, the company responded by making the cereal actually exist, a surprisingly awesome way to react to a joke.

  9. Athlete’s Cereal Box Accidentally Directs People to Sex Hotline

    Bengals star Chad Ochocinco created OchocincO’s to help raise money for a worthy cause, the “Feed the Children” charity. There was one little problem, though – well-meaning people who called the 1-800 number on the box to donate funds were directed to a phone-sex line.

But those three little numbers connected people to something not-so-innocent. >>>Full story at SportsGrid.
