This is a cookie.
Well, technically it WAS a cheap, no-frills cookie, but now it’s a stealthy dental weapon…. because the creamy vanilla filling was meticulously scraped out of two of these cookies & replaced by the 8 year old, an evil genius*.
*or avid YouTube-watcher, since apparently this prank has been making the rounds on there. Hey, at least it beats the Tide pod-eating challenge…*
8 then offered the cookie to the 4 year old, who being 4, didn’t think to question the motive behind a sibling randomly sharing a delicious baked good with him voluntarily.
Now, there are obviously some design flaws here:
Let’s overlook the glaringly obvious fact that I’d be immediately suspicious that this cookie would be any good simply because it’s a black and… yellow cookie, put together, attempting to masquerade as some weak member of the Oreo genus.
Does that alone make it a prank? No, but I’d steer clear anyway on principle. I’m also responsible for buying these for the rest of my family, so that makes me both a scrupulous cookie eater AND a hypocrite.
But beyond that, any experienced cookie eater would spot the sloppy handiwork, no?
Yes, “double stuff” Oreos exist, but not to the point that the filling spills outward. Poor naive little 4…
Let’s also take into account the fact that HIS SISTER BEGGED HIM TO TAKE IT, which would arouse my immediate suspicion in this house. Just saying.
But he took a bite and -as you may have guessed- was unprepared for the overpowering burst of fresh mintiness.
He promptly spit it out, bewildered (and promptly punched 8), and will never trust an Oreo again.
(I’m kidding about him never trusting Oreos. We’re a huge family on a tiny budget. The kid’s eaten bargain store-brand “No-More-Eos” his entire life. He’ll never trust cheap, psudeo-Oreos again, though.)
Now as a good mom does, I consoled 4, and reprimanded 8 loudly for pulling a mean prank on an unsuspecting little guy.
Then, as a bad mom does, I DIED laughing.
Because it was still pretty damn funny & clever, and I wish 8 had pulled the prank on the 12y.o. since he & minty toothpaste aren’t acquainted nearly enough, in my opinion.
And, as a stupid mom does, I took a tiny bite to test it out. Sort of like when someone says, “Don’t touch that; it’s hot.” and you have to touch it to find out for yourself that, yes, it’s indeed hot. Burning hot.
It was minty.
But brilliant nonetheless.
Never trust a sibling willingly offering free dessert treats.
Never sample a toothpaste cookie after it’s been revealed to be a toothpaste cookie. You might be curious, but YOU’VE BEEN WARNED (But like me, you probably will anyway.)
Always brush your teeth daily, or you’ll be eating cookies for breakfast -minty fresh cookies. Yes, 12, I mean YOU.© Copyright 2018 Six Pack Mom, All rights Reserved. Written For: Six Pack Mom
