> allow all individuals to receive an amateur radio license 
> without having to demonstrate any skills with the exception 
> of being able to use a pair of scissors to cut out their 
> operating permit from the breakfast cereal box.
> Kellogg's spokesperson commented that they were proud 
> to have been selected by the government to be the issuer 
> of licenses for amateur radio in the US and hope to soon 
> make an agreement with other cereal loving countries. 
> They also expect that will be issuing certificates of 
> achievement for DXCF for confirmed contacts with 100 corn 
> flakers.
