Where have you been all my life, Golden Oreos?

Today in the cookie aisle of the Safeway on Shattuck I discovered New! Golden Oreos Original.

I did a double take -- could this be, at last, the white Girl Guide/Scout cookies of my youth, available through channels that don't require me to speak to a real live girl?


Now that's a good cookie, and with zero grams of trans fats per serving!

Tomorrow I will try some more of them in combination with decaffeinated green tea. Take that, free radicals!

Yes, decaffeinated. Take that, insomnia!

You'll do anything to avoid talking to live women. Isn't Faye Valentine cute? I also find myself wondering how Golden Oreos Original can also be New! And lastly, beware of clever accounting devices; 0 grams of trans fat doesn't mean it's trans fat-free, but rather that it contains as much as they can round to zero per whatever serving size they're able to get away with.

I'm not the one with the huge ridiculous Faye Valentine wall scroll in my living room.

I figured as much re: trans fats, otherwise they'd just have said "trans fat free".

The Fed Ex of Funk said...

There's a difference between not knowing any women and being unwilling to talk to them.


Dickolas Wang said...

I'm not clear on which of those refers to you and which refers to me.

Well, let's see. I am a woman. Considering that I waved to you twice on Friday [once on Shattuck before the X-men movie and another time while you were exiting the theater] and you didn't wave back, we know which one you are.

Dickolas Wang said...

Oops, sorry.

Having said that, I'm still not seeing how not knowing any girls and having a ridiculous Faye Valentine wall scroll in the living room are related at all.

The Fed Ex of Funk said...

Um, "Asswipe" referred to you in that instance. And I took down that wall scroll days ago. It was only ever up because it was ridiculous, and the effect was wearing off.
