In what is perhaps one of my more bizarre efforts at minimizing stress and frustrations at the day job, I have begun thinking of how including the phrase “with cookies” can improve various statements. Observe:
- Steel cage death match–with cookies!
- “And wuv, twue wuv–wif cookies–will fowwow you foevah . . .”*
- Handle with
*You thought the Impressive Clergyman couldn’t get any more impressive, didn’t you? Didn’t you?
**Granted, I imagine the inclusion of cookies is probably more pleasant for the handler than the recipient. Handling with cookies = happy funtime. Receiving item previously handled with cookies–which now probably includes only the sorry, stale crumbs as reminders of tasty deliciousness–is likely less enjoyable.
