Halloween is over, but for many of us, this is just the start of the Monster Cereal eating season. My favorite is Boo Berry. I always thought that my love for it could be described as a Boo Berry Obsession. Now I am not so sure. In 2004 this segment about a true Boo Berry Obsession appeared on the Fred Willard hosted VH1 documentary series “Totally Obsessed.”
In the segment we meet Roger Barr. Roger takes his love for Boo Berry to levels that make my craving for it seem mild. Claiming to have had at least 1 bowl of Boo Berry every year since he was 7 years old.
I have shared this video with several people over the years. They all tell me that it seems made up. They think Roger is “faking it.” I do not. Maybe it is because I want to live in a world where someone loves Boo Berry this much. To me that means that there is still a spark of magic left out there (In Roger form). The segment is pretty short. So why not watch it yourself and accept the fact that there is still beauty left in this cold grey world.
