jQuery: Exclude type of input from serialization

Using jQuery, I want to get and serialize all values from a form except for the value of checkbox inputs.
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<title>Demo</title>

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.7/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">

$(document).ready(function() {
 $('form').submit(function() {
   alert( 'I do not want "c=3" to be included because that input is a checkbox.\n\n' + $(this).serialize().replace(/\&/g,"\n") );
 });
});

</script>
</head>
<body>
 <form action="/" method="post"> 
  <input type="text" name="a" value="1" />
  <input type="text" name="b" value="2" />
  <input type="checkbox" name="c" value="3" checked="checked" />
  <input type="submit" value="submit"/>
 </form> 
</body>
</html>
