    Brian - ober's talking about eating bowls of cereal really quickly. So quickly that the bowls actually smoke.

    Weed is not generally measured in bowls.

    Cheerios are measured in grams.

    No way - the American unit of measure for Cheerios is bowls. I've got a very reliable contact at General Mills that will back me up on this one. You ever hear anyone say "I just ate 150 grams of Cheerios"? No, they say "I ate 2 bowls of Cheerios".
