Breakfast Time 1977 All Over Again.

Off course growing up in the Catholic Ghetto of Ardoyne at the height of The Troubles me and my mates would have considered the Wheatie goodness of Weetabix little more than a bourgeois indulgence. We would have breakfasted on a bowl of history washed down with a steaming mug of nationalism. This was such an exciting ad though glimpsed in an issue of 2000AD Weekly(the greatest British comic ever produced) in the April/May of the year 1977 whilst Doctor Who(the greatest British television show ever produced) was at the height of its powers. An ad so powerful it would have tempted me to eat Corn-Flakes(the most boring British cereal ever produced.)
