Summary: The secret is out about where Clark gets his powers!

AUTHOR'S NOTE: This is just a little fluff piece just for a laugh. I'm writing this joke at 1:30 in the morning so please cut me some slack here okay? Enjoy! =)


It was a calm, quiet Saturday afternoon in Metropolis, and Clark Kent was very much enjoying this golden opportunity to relax with his fiancee, Lois Lane. She had found out about his big secret about a month ago and started speaking to him again about three weeks ago. Her anger had finally subsided about two weeks ago, and had just recently pretty much returned back to the land of sanity where Clark was concerned, much to his relief.

"You know, Clark, I've always wondered about something. Where do your powers come from?"

He cocked an eyebrow at her and asked, "Do you really wanna know?"

"Well, sure I do! I wouldn't have asked if I didn't want to know, lunkhead!"

"Okay, then come with me and I'll show you." He opened his cabinet and Lois burst into a fit of giggles.

"Clark Kent, you never cease to amaze me. Now tell me the truth. Where do your powers come from?"

"Lois, I am telling you the truth. I promised you no more lying, remember? I meant it."

"You're serious? You mean to tell me that THIS is the source of your powers?"

"Yep, sure is."

"Man, can you imagine what would happen if the world found out that the only reason Superman is so strong and as fast is because he eats his (Super)Wheaties?"
