The Trinity and Cereal

I was thinking a few days ago about The Trinity (The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost) and how some people have a difficult time explaining it and other people have a difficult time understanding, but after some pondering and breakfast, I think I figured it out. Rice Krispies has the answer. The Snap, Crackle, Pop is all coming from the exact same source, but in three distinct different sounds. One sound is not greater than the other and they all work together to create a beautiful symphony. As I remember when I was younger, and I would be eating my bowl of Rice Krispies, it was always said (in commercials and by other people) that the cereal was (anyone else remember that or is it just me) talking to me with those sounds (dramatic pause and waiting for it to sink in). That’s right I don’t sound so crazy now do I? So we don’t have to get into these big theological discussions and debates, and you don’t have to go get a degree to understand it; you just have to simply go to your cereal cabinet and take a look and or listen (which could lead to Schizophrenia so be careful). Rice Krispie Treats on the other hand are way out there in left field I haven’t worked them into my line of thinking yet. Does this make sense to anyone else or is it just blasphemy to compare the Trinity to a bowl of cereal.

Father, Son, Holy Ghost-Trinity
Snap, Crackle, Pop-Rice Krispies

We believe that there are three persons in the Godhead - the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, undivided in essence and co-equal in power and glory.
Maybe doctrine three could be explained a little better if it was worded this way:
We believe that there are three notes in the cereal bowl - the Snap, the Crackle, and the Pop, undivided in essence and co-equal in sound and taste.

This could be a genius idea or it could be the one thing that will forever keep me out of the College For Officers Training.
