UPDATE: Cap'n Ain't Goin' Nowhere

Children's cereal mascots everywhere are breathing a sigh of relief this morning.  On the heels of last night's unexpected news story that Cap'n Crunch would be forced into retirement by PepsiCo, the Cap'n took to his Twitter account this morning to squash the rumors of his demise.  From the man himself:

@realcapncrunch ."I'm hearing the rumors. I would never retire. I love being a captain too much!"

Well there you have it, Horatio Magellan Crunch gets to keep his job after all.  The WeightStaff was unable to to reach Cereal Mascot Union Chief Sonny the Cocoa Bird for comment.

Would it make you feel better if I'd mentioned the period in the early 70s where the Cap'n moved Woodstock, developed a drinking problem, and started hanging out with Van Morrison?
