Cookies are better than greed


So Mr. RK came up with that title - and then coincidentally found this excellent picture!

He suggested I argue my statement, so here goes.

Cookies are better than greed because...

1. They don't sleep on Hermes sheets with your bailout money.
2. They don't charge you debit card fees to access your own money.
3. They have chocolate chips. Or peanut butter.
4. There are many different kinds of cookies, but only one kind of greed. (Mr. RK came up with that one.)
5. If you are selfish with greed, other people get hurt. If you are selfish with cookies, well, NOM!
6. Greed does not have frosting.
7. Greed does not have cute, furry blue monster to spoof the political issues of the day.
8. Cookies might make your ass bigger, but greed makes your heart smaller. (Mr. RK again.)
9. Cookies are made with love. Greed is made with ... well, not love.
10. Cookies are like sex: you can enjoy them by yourself or with other people. You can only enjoy greed by yourself! (Mr. RK.)

You know cookies are biscuits here in the UK don't you?

Is it okay to be greedy about cookies though?

Cookies are the foodification of greed. Cookies are not essential to human existence. Cookies are the extravegence.

Also, greed tastes like crap. Trust me, Ted Turner kebabs were a poor choice for my last BBQ.

Riot Kitty said...

H: Amen!
ABFTS: Eeeeew! But funny.

After this, I'm going to remember cookies for a long time, even after the taste has lingered and gone.

Super list.

Riot Kitty said...

A: Haha! Thanks.

Darth Weasel said...

consuming cookies is never greed, it is simply taking advantage of natural rights, which are inalienable






and I hate, hate, hate the "cookies are a sometimes thing" version of cookie monster

Riot Kitty said...

Darth: So do I! He is a cookie MONSTER.
