If you give a mouse a cookie…

Did anyone else love If You Give a Mouse a Cookie when they were little?

I’m learning the story of “If you give a fiance pigs in a blanket”…

and it turns out the story goes a little like this:

If you give a fiance pigs in a blanket for dinner, he might do a little more drinking than he should that night.

He’s done that enough to know that coffee helps.  So the next day he’ll drink EIGHT cups of coffee with breakfast


And since he drank eight cups of coffee, he’ll be too full to eat a good snack with you later


(Fuji + peanut butter.  Nothin’ better)

And if he doesn’t eat a snack, and he’s had 8 cups of coffee, when you go out shopping he’s going to get HUNGRY

Because he’s hungry and you’re not at home, he’ll have some fast food

He might pout a little because Taco Bell doesn’t have the half pound beef and potato burrito.  You’ll internally say a little thank you prayer and hope he gets something healthier.


Being an economist, he’ll need a value meal, to maximize his utility.

And the value meal will come with a soda

Which he’ll finish at home, with a cookie


Since he’s got something to eat and a drink, he might as well turn the tv on…

When he turns the TV on, he’ll find football

And chances are, if he’s watching football, he’s going to want some lil smokies to eat while he watches.

The End.

    1/2 a pound of beef? That’s legal to serve?
