I have won CC84, CC90, CC105, WW29, WW32, ICC22, OPC20, CC328, CC389, and CC440. I enjoy lampoon and parody. I have especially enjoyed the first 23 issues of Mad which I have as large hardcover reprints. I regularly read Sinfest, Non Sequitur, Dilbert, Pearls Before Swine, Monty (formerly Robotman), Lio, Diesel Sweeties, We the Robots, Boy on a Stick and Slither, Basic Instructions and some others. I'm also a fan of such discontinued strips as Calvin & Hobbes, The Far Side, Bloom County, Outland, Opus, Pogo, and Krazy Kat.

♫ Apple Max, Apple Max, sinfully tasty Apple Max ♫
Are you nuts? I've had Apple Max for years, and this doesn't taste like it. It tastes like 'Nix, the Sunfoods cereal that's beta-tested and coder-approved.
'Nix? I've heard my old man mention it. I thought it was dead like Amiga-Bits and Commodorios.
'Nix may not be the hippest cereal among kids, but it has long been the cereal of choice among people who serve cereal.
So you're saying the new Apple Max is based on 'Nix?
It wouldn't surprise me. The folks behind Tux Flakes have been trying to imitate 'Nix for years. I guess when you want to be the best, you copy the best.

I hate it when people confuse Apple Max with one of that company's older products, Apple Too! -- Apple Too! was simple and only contained a little nutrition, but we liked it! we loved it!

I didn't understand the relevance of your comment when I first read it. Then it occurred to me that you may think the man is confusing Apple Max with his memories of Apple Too. He is not. This strip is about Mac OS X being based on Unix, for which the cereal 'Nix is a metaphor.
