Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt lit up Twitter early Thursday morning by digging into a highly controversial topic — breakfast cereals.
In honor of National Cereal Day, the former University of Wisconsin star opened Pandora' Box by tweeting, "Trying to rank the top 5 cereals is harder than trying to figure out the top 4 teams for the College Football Playoff. Been sitting here for 20 minutes having a full blown debate with myself."
Before you get to Watt's picks at the end, check out some of the better (safe for work) responses below:

A paradox of choice
What are some of your options? My husband and I decided to have cereal for dinner one night and stood in the aisle for 30 min trying to figure out what we wanted.— Linda Joyce (@linmarsh86) March 7, 2019

Asking the wrong question

Hold the mother-in-law jokes
My MIL used to keep a box of Cocoa Puffs in her pantry just for me when the hubs and I were dating. They’re both keepers, btw. Just sayin.— Cindy Connolly (@coffeeaddict71) March 7, 2019
Mom knows best
Totally. On the rare occasions we had it in the house I felt like I was getting away with something, getting to have chocolate milk for breakfast.— Essex Mortimer Dogg (@essdogg) March 7, 2019
I also had to keep an eye on it when we had it because my mom would have a bowl at night while I was sleeping.
What's the deal with cereal?
Don't @ me

Note: I don’t drink milk so my ranking is purely based on eating dry cereal as a snack.
I haven't had it in like 30 years. But I remember it basically being a bowl of cookies and I was totally fine with that.— Versh (@Vershered) March 7, 2019
Another bowl bites the dust
The amount of bowls in landfills as a result of post breakfast Grape Nuts is staggering. If you didn't rinse off the excess before putting in the dishwasher you had barnacles.— Lost Along the River Bend (@DerbyHibby) March 7, 2019

If it's good enough for Red...
