I saw this label [left] on a colleague's jacket last week and took a quick a snap. It kinda reminded me of something. Then yesterday it came to me - it's a crude copy (minus the chicken) of a cornflakes box, right? Bizarre. And now I think about it, why do cornflake packets have a chicken on the front anyway? Where's the connection there? As ever, answers on a postcard...

I think the original was a cock crowing alluding to morning & breakfast? Also don’t chickens eat corn?

Possibly for the same reason that Frosties have a tiger on?

Chickens here eat rice, but yes, your hypotheses sound all too reasonable. I feel foolish now.
