I can quit any time. by jollyjack I can quit any time. by jollyjack
....just one more.

Edit: Etymology at work again. Biscuit/Cookie, both are the same thing, but the Brits get their name for it from Latin, by way of Middle French ("bescuit"), while the Americans get their name for it from the Dutch ("koekie").

Heck, if everyone became hooked on these instead of drugs, the world would be a better - if fatter - place.

Interesting tid-bit reg; the biscuit / cookie argument. You learn and laugh at the same time ;P

It's way funnier if you imagine the Heavy's voice for the "om nom nom"

I'm poor, I usually buy the off brand knock offs.  But occasionally, I like the real thing.  I bought some honest to god Oreo brand cookies the other week for the first time in a few years.  

They barely lasted an afternoon.   It was terrible.

Did you know that Hydrox cookies came before Oreos, yet they got branded as the knockoff? :D

Jeeze really? They must've been pushed under the carpet pretty fast, Oreo's have been around since 1912. Your right though, Hydrox has been around since 1908 and inspired Oreo.

I did not in fact.  It happens a lot though in branding wars I understand.

There is one generic brand that I like. I forget if it's Hotkiss ( sounds strange, I know. ) These don't taste like vegetable shortening. To be honest, I'd take them over Oreos any day. O_o

Whilst working at my local grocery store, I was stocking the shelves with, wait for it... Oreos! A small child and her mother walk behind me. The mother asks if Oreos would work for the party. The child responds by saying that she hates oreos now because they have cocaine in them. So I turn around, completely catching them by surprise, and engaging them in a lengthy discussion so as to educate the girl on what the article actually said, not what her ignorant little mind thought it said. I was just disappointed that that was the little girl's opinion and the mother didn't try to find out if it were true or not, but rather still offered to buy the Oreos even after hearing her daughter's argument against them (just before I jumped into the conversation). Clearly the mother was smart enough to see her daughter's belief as being false, but she didn't try to correct it. And this was all the fault of the misinterpreted data presented by "trustworthy" media sources. And this comment ran WAY longer than I thought it would.
