Twitter Is Freaking Out After Realizing Viral Shrimp Cereal Guy Is Married To The Actress Who Played Topanga On Boy Meets World
You didn’t think the Cinnamon Toast Crunch shrimp tails story could get any wilder, did you?
In case you’re not caught up and “Cinnamon Toast Crunch shrimp tails” sounds like crazy word salad generated by an AI, here’s the deal. Comedian Jensen Karp went viral on Twitter this week after sharing a photo of some shrimp tails he found in a new box of the cereal. Those actually weren’t the worst thing he found in there, but they were definitely the strangest. Karp then ended up in a baffling back-and-forth with the company, which tried to suggest that the tails were actually “accumulations of sugar.” Needless to say, the internet was hanging on every word as it all played out in public for all of us to see.
As the shrimp tails tale gained traction — and seemed to get weirder at every turn — fans following the saga uncovered another detail that was sort of the straw that broke the camel’s back. Specifically, that Karp is married to Danielle Fishel, AKA Topanga Lawrence of Boy Meets World.
OK, this Cinnamon Toast Crunch/shrimp tails story is wild, but we’re burying the lede here…

This little nugget of information wasn’t a secret, but it did almost get lost in the insanity of the shellfish discovery. So yes, Shrimp Cereal Guy is married to Topanga and they have a baby together.
And yes, that means she was the iron-stomached wife who discovered the floss in bag #2 (below).
UPDATE: my wife has a stronger stomach than me and checked the OTHER bag in the family pack. This one seems taped up (?) and also appears to include…(I don’t even want to say it)…dental floss. pic.twitter.com/yKPkpx7PWq

“Cory Matthews would absolutely have found shrimp tails in his cereal and had no idea what to do until Topanga showed up”
“‘Cinnamon Toast Shrimp guy is married to Topanga.’ Is 10000% a russian asset activation code. Somewhere Black Widow just woke the f**k up”
And then there’s this mind-boggling summary:
