my favorite thing about this article goes entirely unremarked upon throughout and it’s that the implementation of the isArray function in the example npm module is an absolutely batshit insane way to tell if something is an array or not and i think that’s a better illustration of his point than anything he says in the article
I’m not about to say that General Mills' JoJo Siwa Strawberry Bop! cereal is good. It's yet another one-note, sugary cereal with a flavor profile that bears little resemblance to what it’s supposed to be. I didn't taste any strawberries in this bowl; I would be shocked to learn if anyone, anywhere, did.
But it isn't bad either. If you eat it for what it is—a branded cereal designed specifically for children who love this particular teen pop star—then it’s fine. Unlike some previous cereals tasted for this column, it isn't life-ruining. The most I can say about this cereal is that it's completely inoffensive; you can’t get mad about it, nor can you be all that disappointed.
As a result I feel comfortable giving JoJo Siwa Strawberry Bop! three spoons out of five. Even if I find it kind of boring, it does what it's presumably supposed to do: make breakfast a little more fun for the tween set.
(Not that anyone should be eating any of these cereals for breakfast in the first place.)

“now listen to me brendan. when i was younger there was this place called coney island. they called coney island the playground of the world. there was no place like it, in the whole world, like coney island when i was a youngster. no place in the world like it, and it was so fabulous.”
“now it’s shrunk down to almost nothing… and, uh, i still remember in my mind how things used to be, and… uh, you know, i feel real bad.
“but people from all over the world came here…from all over the world… it was the playground, brendan. they called it the playground of the world.”
“anyways. i even got, when i was very small, i even got lost at coney island. you’ll never guess where they found me.”
“uh. on a ferris wheel?”
“on the beach, brendan. and we used to sleep on the beach there. sleep overnight.”
“on the… on the beach.”
“and we used to sleep on the beach there overnight. they don’t do that anymore, brendan. things changed.”
“they don’t do that. things changed. they don’t do it anymore.”
