Yoko Ono goes loco for Cocoa Puffs.

... well, not Cocoa Puffs, but rather for a new cereal by Kellogg's organic division, Kashi, called Strawberry Fields. Seems she feels it's a bit too close to one of John Lennon's immortal ditties.

Never mind that John found inspiration for one of Sgt. Pepper's songs by listening to a Kellogg's Corn Flakes commercial. Go here for the story, and "...imagine all the berries..."

    If that scared you a bit, you should see the promo for General Mills' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Bran!

    I'll leave it to you to guess which song from the album they used in the commercial.

    Verizon monkey mp3 files? Yoko? Is that you?

    It's easy. Just take your mouse, lift it up and place in on the monitor over the following line of text...

    OOP. OOP. EEP. OOK. OOK.

    Got it there? Good. Now recite the following into the microphone that's installed under your keyboard spacebar...

    "I am a meat popsicle."

    And there ya go.

    I followed the instructions but nothing happened. Do I need to download a special driver for the spacebar?
