GK:.....brought to you by Mournful Oatmeal----the cereal of reality

Here we are in Ithaca where it's cloudy and rainy and it's humid in the auditorium and many people are wondering if their hair looks as bad as it feels,

 

And the answer is, yes, it does, this is not one of its better days.

 

We could say that Mournful Oatmeal will bring out the natural luster and youthfulness of your hair,

 

But you would know that we were lying and that's not why people go to college, now is it.
