This Is How America Will Regain Its Technology Mojo

Spotted this trivia question on a packet of oatmeal: "What does the acronym CPU stand for?"

I applaud you, Mr. Manufacturer, for avoiding pop trivia questions. But I'm now afraid to go near that box of granola lest it spring a surprise test on microprocessor design on me.

No way. A brand exec who can spell "microprocessor"? In the US?

They'll probably find a cute animal mascot to represent the word?

JAP - of course they'll just say "chip". Who would understand what a microprocessor is, anyway?
