Cookie Do. Less Solution, More Problem
Maybe the only thing the fattest nation on the planet needs more than another McRib season: the perfect dessert to grab on the way home from another trip through the Taco Bell drive-thru.
Remember when eating cookie dough was something little kids did when there was some left in the bowl mom had used to mix it to....you know, make cookies? Remember when eating large amounts of raw cookie dough was something comedy show writers imagined that heartbroken young women and single young men did because they were damaged or just plain infantile?
Of course, those were the days when watching hour after hour of television was seen as the last refuge of the friendless loser. Today we buy cable packages which allow us to record thousands of hours so we never, never have to STOP watching tv, and gazing at it while sitting on buses or walking down the street is seen as perfectly normal, even desirable. So, overflowing waffle cones stuffed with cookie dough? Just par for the course.
I'm buying stock in pharmacutical companies that specialize in insulin tomorrow. My comfy retirement is assured.
