Friday Funnies: Oreo Cookies

Just like last fall, I've been on a baking kick. For the past several weeks, I have been making quick breads, cakes, bars, and cookies.

Poor Steve started exercising regularly in September, and since then he's gained five pounds. My fault. He counted up the goodies and it came to more than 16 recipes.

He started bringing them to work so his colleagues could enjoy them, and now they're wondering why his crazy wife can't seem to stop producing treats.


My most recent experiment was homemade oreo cookies. They weren't really that close to the store bought kind, but they still turned out pretty good:


If you're interested in trying them, you can find the recipe here. Whip up a batch, pass them out, and observe the results:

The Oreo Personality Test

Psychologists have discovered that the manner in which people eat Oreo cookies provides great insight into their personalities. Choose which method best describes your favorite method of eating Oreos:

1. The whole thing all at once.
2. One bite at a time
3. Slow and methodical nibbles, examining the results of each bite afterwards.
4. In little feverish nibbles.
5. Dunked in some liquid (milk, coffee, etc.).
6. Twisted apart, the inside first, and then the cookie.
7. Twisted apart, the inside, and toss the cookie.
8. Just the cookie, not the inside.
9. I just like to lick them, not eat them.
10. I don't have a favorite way because I don't like Oreos.

Made your choice? Here's your personality description:

1. The whole thing.
This means you consume life with abandon. You are fun to be with, exciting, and carefree with some hint of recklessness. You are totally irresponsible. No one should trust you with their children.

2. One bite at a time.
You are lucky to be one of the 5.4 billion other people who eat their Oreos this very same way. Just like them, you lack imagination, but that's okay, not to worry, you're normal.

3. Slow and Methodical.
You follow the rules. You're very tidy and orderly. You're meticulous in every detail with everything you do, to the point of being anal retentive and irritating to others. Stay out of the fast lane if you're only going to go the speed limit.

4. Feverish Nibbles.
Your boss likes you because you get your work done quickly. You always have a million things to do and never enough time to do them. Mental breakdowns run in your family. Valium and Ritalin would do you good.

5. Dunked.
Everyone likes you because you are always upbeat. You like to sugar coat unpleasant experiences and rationalize bad situations, turning them into good ones. You are in total denial about the shambles your life is in. You have a propensity towards narcotic addiction.

6. Twisted apart, the inside, and then the cookie.
You have a highly curious nature. You take pleasure in breaking things apart to find out how they work, though not always able to put them back together, so you destroy all the evidence of your activities. You deny your involvement when things go wrong. You are a compulsive liar and exhibit deviant, if not criminal, behavior.

7. Twisted apart, the inside, and then toss the cookie.
You are good at business and take risk that pay off. You take what you want and throw the rest away. You are greedy, selfish, mean, and lack feelings for others. You should be ashamed of yourself. But that's okay...you don't care, since you got yours.

8. Just the cookie, not the inside.
You enjoy pain.

9. I just like to lick them, not eat them.
Stay away from small furry animals and seek professional medical help immediately.

10. I don't have a favorite way, I don't like Oreo cookies.
You probably come from a rich family, like to wear nice things, and go to upscale restaurants. You are particular and fussy about the things you buy, own, and wear. Things have to be just right. You like to be pampered. You are a prima donna. There's just no pleasing you.

Sigh! Oreos. So good. Saw new interesting flavors in the grocery store this week, but nothing can beat the traditional flavor. Good luck with your binge!

Funny as usual--I like the removing of the cookies cartoon. I am not sure about the oreos--I don't eat them the same way every time--what does that say about my personality--ha ha!
