October 29 is National Oatmeal Day.

Here are “7 Fun Oatmeal Facts for National Oatmeal Day” from Health.com. For example, did you know that oatmeal is a whole grain? Or that oatmeal is good for your heart? Yeah, those facts don’t sound all that fun to me.

You know what I think is fun? Watching old geezers talk about oatmeal. So here’s Wilford Brimley in a commercial for Quaker Extra Instant Oatmeal. Even though he’s only 54 here, he’s already perfected his cranky old man persona.
