Own a Square Inch of the Yukon!
All Things Considered just did a piece on the 19 acres of land in the Yukon that the Quaker Oats Company bought, AFAI can recall, in the 1950s, and divided up into square-inch plots with deeds stuffed into cereal boxes as premiums. But i find no relevant G-hits in WP for
- Yukon cereal
and assume we don't cover it. Give it some thot.
The piece mentioned that Quaker lost title to the land by failing to pay $37 in taxes at some point, and that Yukon land is sold without mineral rights. The promotion required adding extra shifts to meet the demand. It was inspired by someone's less notable square-inch-of-Texas-land project. The ad guy who proposed or implemented it went on to name Cap'n Crunch.

Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page
Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessaryily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request it's removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.
