Psst. Cookie Monster.
I read theyâ€™re cutting back your cookie consumption. Thatâ€™s too bad, after all, youâ€™re THE Cookie Monster.
I donâ€™t understand why theyâ€™re doing this to you, itâ€™s not your fault kids are getting fat. You should go on TV and point fingers at the fast food industry, the lack of physical education in schools, or SpongeBob SquarePants. People are blaming SpongeBob for other things, so you should just peg this one on him as well.
Anyway, so are you having withdrawals? It must be hard on you to not be able to eat cookies all the time. Addictions can be hard to break. Look at Charlie Sheen. He couldnâ€™t stop his hooker addiction for that hottie Denise Richards.
To be honest, you eating cookies all the time wasnâ€™t so bad. Youâ€™ve eaten them for decades and youâ€™re not obese, youâ€™ve never had a heart attack, and you donâ€™t have diabetes. So I donâ€™t understand why you NOW need to eat a balanced diet. Youâ€™re like those old men who eat bacon for every meal, smoke cigars everyday, and live until theyâ€™re 90 years old.
Well, because you and I have a lot in common, like loving cookies, having googly eyes, and hairy chests, especially around the nipple area, Iâ€™m going to help you out.
I just baked some Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip & Caramel Cookies, and if you want some, I could send a dozen of them to you…for a price.
I know youâ€™ve got money, because youâ€™ve been on television for decades. You must be raking in, at least, a hundred thousand dollars an episode.
And donâ€™t give me that non-profit PBS excuse, Iâ€™m sure you also get residuals from all the 120 foreign markets Sesame Street is in. Oh, and letâ€™s not forget the money youâ€™re making from all the merchandising.
I know you donâ€™t make as much as Big Bird or that annoying Elmo, but youâ€™re probably making more than Grover, Mr. Snuffleupagus, and those two lovebirds, Bert and Ernie.
If youâ€™re interested, Iâ€™ve got a plan to get these cookies to you without your fellow Sesame Street neighbors finding out.
Iâ€™ll give the cookies to those hippies down in Fraggle Rock and they could dig a tunnel to your place and deliver the cookies to you. Theyâ€™re not doing anything, except getting high, because their show ended in 1987.
Wait, on second thought, that might be a bad idea. Some of them might have a bad case of the munchies and eat your cookies before they deliver them to you.
Maybe Iâ€™ll just mail them, wrapped in coffee beans so no one can smell the cookies.
So youâ€™re probably wondering howâ€™s the product?
These Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip & Caramel Cookies are good. Theyâ€™re definitely better than those Chips Ahoy cookies, but they arenâ€™t as good or as big as the Pillsbury Chocolate Chip Big Deluxe Classics I tried last month.
I know you like the traditional crunchy chocolate chip cookies, so I donâ€™t know if youâ€™ll really like these because the caramel filling in each cookie makes them a lot chewier and sweeter. To be honest, the caramel made them a little too sweet for me, but I donâ€™t think youâ€™ll notice it because you donâ€™t ever chew your cookies anyway, you just inhale them.
Or, if you like, I can just send you the cookie dough for you to bake. These cookies are quick and easy. Just break off the globs of cookie dough, place them on a baking pan, and bake them at 350 degrees for 13 minutes.
However, if you decide to go the cookie dough route, the aroma from baking them could tip people off to what youâ€™re up to and you might get into trouble. If you like, I could throw in a little incense, for an extra fee, to cover the baking smell.
Anyway, if you want this deal done, you know how to contact me.
Just to let you know, I expect half the payment up front, and the other half after delivery.
