Boo Who?

We all know Boo Berry as the lovable spokes ghost for General Mills' Boo Berry cereal.

Since he is a ghost, I can't help but think about the fact that he's dead...or more specifically, that he is the ghost of a dead man.

This raises a very curious question:

Who was the person that died to become the ghost of Boo Berry?

No one would argue that Boo has lived a rich after-life as a corporate shill, but who was he before that and for that matter, how did he die?

Was he crushed by an unusually large blueberry bush?

Did he slip on a blueberry and take a fatal fall down a flight of stairs?

A candy mishap while on a visit to Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory?

Emphysema?

Unfortunately, the world may never know.

Maybe he's just the ghost of healthy breakfasts everywhere.

It also makes me wonder what happened to Casper the friendly kid.

Hmmm.

I've always thought Boo Berry®™©™ had great style. Not everyone can pull off bow ties.

And here's a helpful hint: Don't ever spend an entire night drinking Stoli Blueberi®™©™ on the rocks, exclusively.

You wake up the next morning all hungover, feeling like you've eaten a whole box of that breakfast cereal.

I speak from experience.

Maybe the mysterious circumstances surrounding Jimmy Hoffa's unexplained disappearance and presumed death can finally be put to rest.

He could possibly be the ghost of Winston Churchill or maybe Pee Wee Herman.

With the droopy eye lids, bowler hat and bow tie it could be the spirit of Stan Laurel from the comedy team of Laurel and Hardy.

I think he is the ghost of General Mills - a Revolutionary War hero.

And Casper is the ghost of Richie Rich.

I think Frankenberry killed him on Count Chocula's orders.
