So, gourmet, organic, etc. cookies -seems- like a good idea, right?
...and they come in flavors like chocolate chip, and chocolate mint fudge, and everything you supposedly want.
So why is it that they inevitably taste like ass? And I find myself going back to terrible shit like Mallomars and Hostess Cupcakes?
ETA: and while we're on the general subject.
I propose a moratorium on all use of the term "cookie" for derisively signaling that so -and-so is a Crap Ally or just plain asshole who's made some entirely inadequate gesture nominally toward erasing oppression and is now wondering, whinily, why effusive thanks and praise are not coming hir way from the oppressed/annoyed persons in question.
a) as overused and often misused poli-blog cliches go, it's getting even worse than "straw__"
b) cookies are a GOOD thing. we should not be minging in doling out COOKIES.
EVERBODY HAVE COOKIE!!!
