For those people who refuse to accept that black and white icing can peacefully co-exist, we give you Segregated Cookies. Can't we all just get along? This display case sets cookies back at least 40 years. After all the picketing by the Lorna Doones and the Fig Newtons, marching all the way to Pepperidge Farm. What do we want? Dual icing! When do we want it? Now!

Had this bakery NOT seen the famous Seinfeld exchange?

When asked for an explanation, Pick-a-Bagel said, "Sor-ray."

Just seeing those "separate-but-equal" cookies sickens me. Although to be honest, I would most likely take an all-chocolate frosted cookie over an all-vanilla one.

I saw the same thing happening in the laundry room the other day. A neighbor was segregating the whites from the "colors". Apparently she was afraid of what would happen if the two races of garments mixed.

But I have a dream that one day, little white socks and little red socks will be able to join together and that their pink offspring will be accepted, not for the color of their fabric, but for the good that they are for our sweaty damn feet.

@ Soce: I see what you're saying. Ho boy. I see EXACTLY what you're saying!

@ Chris: Standing ovation. I think you mean "not for the color of their fabric but for the cotton of their character".

H. Alan Scott! Are you trying to butter me up? I wish this post were about shortbread so that question would count as a pun.
