One-of-a-kind monthly wall calendar! Features the HOT Cereal Man of every American decade from the 1890s to today.

One-of-a-kind 13 month wall calendar for oatmeal lovers everywhere! The calendar measures 11" x 17" and will be professionally printed and saddle stitched by a local Chicago printer.

Now in its THIRD year there is no other calendar like it, check out our past calendars here.

My name is Bill Ehrlich and I'm a HOT . . . Cereal Man. Long story short, this calendar is a result of my conversion from being a Cold Cereal Schmuck to a HOT Cereal Man a few years ago.

It all started one chilly fall morning as the seasons began to change, I had a little bit of a sore throat and although it was not my usual routine at the time, I decided to make myself a bowl of hot oatmeal for breakfast. At this point everything changed.

The next morning I was in the kitchen with my pseudo-Mom Nancy (at the time I was living in my friend's parent's basement) and I couldn't help but confess, "Nancy, I'm a HOT . . . Cereal Man." Nancy looked at me like I had just come out of the closet and gathered herself before responding, "OH, well that's nice." My conversion was complete.

In the following couple of weeks I kept enjoying the idea of being a HOT Cereal Man and then had the seemingly outrageous idea for the calendar. About a month later while visiting a couple of friends I decided to share my idea, although I was not sure if it would translate at all. Turns our they loved it and said that if I made the calendar they would absolutely use it . . . the rest is history.

Speaking of history, in 2014 we are doing a Period Piece looking at every American decade from the 1890s up through today. This is definitely our best calendar yet!

The calendar is a standard sized wall calendar (11" x 17") that will be professionally printed and saddle stitched at a local printer. It makes a wonderful conversation piece at the office, but could also be a great Christmas gift/stocking stuffer for the oatmeal lover in your life or if you're just looking for that "WTF" reaction from your loved ones.
