Happy Birthday Cornflakes!

Today is the 101st anniversary of the Corn Flake. A humble breakfast cereal, oft ignored by Phunkidz unless frosted, but a mainstay at the breakfast table across the country. If you haven't had your bowl today, mark your calendar for tomorrow and revel in the crunchy goodness.

Dr. John Kellogg, believing that a strict diet (along with vigorous exercise, fresh air and plenty of rest) benefits the patients at his sanitarium in Battle Creek, Michigan, serves up the world's first corn flakes.
