Skip to comments.He's An Impostor, The Navy Says About Cap'n Crunch

We don't know how, but we missed a major scandal brewing in the Navy for decades. It's important, so even if we're a little late to the story we still wanted to point it out: Cap'n Crunch is an impostor.
The Cap'n was unmasked on June 14 by a food blogger, who noticed the uniform he wears on cereal boxes had the stripes of a commander, not a captain. That is: A captain has four stripes on his sleeve, while a commander has three.
As the story spread, the Navy confirmed what you might be fearing: Cap'n Crunch is a fraud, tricking innocent children since his introduction in 1963.

He was a dragon.
A Daryl Dragon to be precise.
I've infrequently wondered if there are some occasions when he should be Dr. Whom.
"Come taste these sweet wee morsels!"
[I know, I know, it's hard to keep track.]
It varies. Best information: ie not from the Doctor (Rule One: The Doctor lies) is that he gained a doctorate from the Prydonian Academy on Gallifrey Class of '92 (with a grade of 51% on his second attempt)
There are no “5 stripes” in the Military. An Admiral would have 1 two inch stripe (not sure of the width), then one, two or three stripes (same as a Captain) depending on the rank.
You mean to tell me, Captain Kangaroo is a FAKE?
OH the Humanity!
Relax! He’s not fake, he’s a fireman. See the insignia on his cap. I hope you can sleep tonight! lol :0
Yes..I noticed the insignia on his hat! LOL!
