Podcast of the Day: ‘Serial’ Gets a Cereal Parody

You knew this was coming.

"Serial," a true crime series from the creators of "This American Life," is bringing podcasts back into the spotlight.

Each week Sarah Koenig brings listeners deeper and deeper into her investigation of case from 1999 about a young woman in Baltimore who was found murdered, presumably by her ex-boyfriend.

It's extremely addictive, but because it's Thanksgiving, there is no new episode this week. So one fan decided to make his own version of the show, surrounding a much less violent case.

"Knowing that fans will be chomping at the bit for their Serial fix, I decided to make my own podcast. It's about a bowl of Fruity Pebbles that went missing from the Baltimore area in 1999."

A bloody farm fight to death obviously.

Remember their sacrifice as you're stuffing yourself with them this week.

Watch out "Jedi bitches." The Dark Side has never been sexier.

Nerdist is out with a new Star Wars parody of the hit song by Meghan Trainor, "All About That Bass" featuring Team Unicorn, Darth Vader cheerleading outfits and dancing storm troopers.

What more could you want, besides maybe a Jedi response via Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda?"
