Westbor-O's get their name not from their shape (they are shaped like squares, not little 'o's) but from the sound people make when they place them in their mouths .
Westbor-O's are marketed as "The cereal that are for TRUE Christians- buy it or you're a fag and deserve to go to hell" because the cereal is marketed by the Westboro Baptist Church, which is a major hate group that hates everyone.
When Fred Phelps, the founder of the Westboro Baptist Church, decided to promote his ideals of homophobia and hatred by selling cereals made by wheat and corn grown by his family after discovering that the cereals they buy are American, and because God hates everyone in the world and every country except them, produced Westbor-Os. The cereal was a success. However, it was sold only in Kansas, and only under the WBC. The cereals were shaped like squares because the 'O'-shaped ones "are for faggot companies like General Mills whose employees should go to hell for faggotry, and the 'O's are the sign of anal sex and therefore a symbol of homosexuality".
Since it was first introduced by GiraMills in 1983, the cereal has converted thousands of people into the Westboro Baptist Church and was the major cause of homophobia and hatred. GiraMills Corporation was later found to be a Somalia -based company, and thousands of WBC people protested outside the USA division of GiraMills, carrying slogans such as "God Hates Somalia" and "God Hates Breakfast". But in 1995, Somalia suffered from a famine in which there was a shortage of wheat and corn, so GiraMills switched to a 50% mixture of wheat with wood pulp, as the corn supplies dwindled to zero. In 2001, the WBC made a competition in which children have to cut out the picket signs on the side of the box and send it to GiraMills in order to win a prize- to be a visitor to the WBC.
The winner was a 12 year old kid from Chicago, but declined the offer and gave that to a homophobic friend instead. The Westboro Baptist Church, furious, protested.
