Gene Simmons took to Twitter late Wednesday to ask the Internet if he's the only person who puts ice cubes in their cereal in the morning.

Simmons' Tweet was accompanied by two photos. One depicts him in a bathrobe dipping a spoon into that extra cold cold cereal. The other is a closeup of what at first glance appears to be a bowl full of black olives, but upon closer inspection is just two kinds of cereal mixed together with milk and several ice cubes.

What Simmons' Tweet does not include is what purpose he believes those milk-soaked ice cubes serve.

KISS's Demon bassist must be the only person he knows who employs this method, otherwise he probably wouldn't be asking the Twitterverse.

The Internet's collective answer, by the way, was a resounding, "WHAT!?"

"This is a billion times worse than Ozzy biting the head off that bat," wrote one user.

"Absolutely, positively no one but you," answered another.

One user just cut the BS: "Why you doing that, Gene?"

Even Simmons' own son, Nick, wouldn't defend his old man.

"30 years," Nick wrote in a reply. "30 years watching him do this. This is my life."

Many more replies ignored Simmons' question and tried to determine why someone would ice cereal. The prevailing theory is that it's an attempt to keep the milk cold. And while it probably works for that purpose, if Simmons is taking so much time with his cereal that his milk is getting warm, wouldn't the ice just make his cereal extra soggy sooner?

Is Simmons not bothered by soggy cereal?

One suggested Simmons instead try freezing some cubes of milk, which seems like a pretty solid hack, though it might be hard to get frozen milk cubes from catering on the remainder of Kiss's 'End of the Road' Tour.
