I’m watching the Manbearpig episode of South Park and it just got me thinking of where it started up

first of its ‘Serial’ and im not sure, thats a good question. I’ve never heard him talk apart from in ‘an inconvenient truth’. It may just be something to mock him because its something a kid would say, ie its saying he’s a kid especially because in that episode when he says it he is always whining or having a tantrum. Have you ever heard him say it in realy life?

No that’s why I was wondering, when it first came out my friends and I thought that he slipped up while making a speech or something.

According to the closed captioning, it is, in fact, cereal. Not serial. And you still didn’t say where it came from.

Yeah, first comment knob, its “Cereal”, were you born on the Moon? Its as old as I am. It comes from kids eating cereal every morning, noticing the syntactical similarity with “Serious”, then going to school, and saying it. Don’t over think wizzo.

“Referencing a real-life appearance Al Gore made on The Oprah Winfrey Show before the episode aired, where he misunderstood a question regarding his favorite cereal”—from wikipedia.
