I'd never heard of this until just today, 1984 day.

Re: Cheerios offer

Dear Big Brother,

I think you've mistaken me for someone else. I long ago boycotted all General Mills products, most packaged foods, and all large "food" suppliers.

However, if you have information on cheap or discounted EMP weapons (preferably large ones) or DIY blueprints with lists of cheap or used parts suppliers, I am definitely interested.

Also, if you would, I'd appreciate schematics on critical surveillance infrastructure and storage facilities. A buy one get one free would be fantastic there.

Thank you for your kind concern,

Renegade

...

(I wasn't going here originally, but you just gave me the punchline!)

"Dear Ren.
You DO eat Cheerios. Repeat after me. You DO eat Cheerios. Food privileges will be revoked until this assertion is validated"

Big Brother."

(See especially the "Four Lights" theme from Star Trek TNG!)

Dear Big Brother,

By "Cheerios" do you mean "Soma"? And are you having an identity crisis? Please forward the EMP and schematics on to me and I will assist you to the best of my Alpha ability in remedying your temporary condition.

Faithfully yours,

Renegade
