Christmas Cookie Rules

This has been around the 'net since the 'net was invented.   Read it one more time  ;-)


Christmas Cookie Rules
1. If you eat a Christmas cookie fresh out of the oven, it has no
calories because everyone knows that the first cookie is the test and thus calorie free.

2.
If you drink a diet soda after eating your second cookie, it also has no calories because the diet soda cancels out the cookie calories.

3.
If a friend comes over while you're making your Christmas cookies and needs to sample, you must sample with your friend. Because your friend's first cookie is calories free (rule #1), yours is also. It would be rude to let your friend sample alone and, being the friend that you are, that makes your cookie calorie free.

4.
Any cookie calories consumed while walking around will fall to your feet and eventually fall off as you move. This is due to gravity and the density of the caloric mass.

5.
Any calories consumed during the frosting of the Christmas cookies will be used up because it takes many calories to lick excess frosting from a knife without cutting your tongue.

6.
Cookies colored red or green have very few calories. Red ones have three and green ones have five - one calorie for each letter. Make more red ones!

7.
Cookies eaten while watching Miracle on 34th Street have no
calories because they are part of the entertainment package and not part of one's personal fuel.

8.
As always, cookie pieces contain no calories because the process of breaking causes calorie leakage.

9.
Any cookies consumed from someone else's plate have no calories because the calories rightfully belong to the other person and will cling to their plate. We all know how calories like to CLING!

10.
Any cookies consumed while feeling stressed have no calories because cookies used for medicinal purposes NEVER have calories. It's a rule! So, go out and enjoy those Christmas Cookies - we get them only this time of year!

Nancy you forgot the last rule.

Rule # 11
A cookie in each hand is a balanced diet.

Thank you for sharing.  This time of year..and year round these rules will come in handy.  We do how ever have to change the title of the movie to make it appropriate for each season. I would guess that the more one cries during the movie the more calories expended resulting in a caloric deficit allowing you to consume more cookies.

Not 100% sure on this but cookies in gift bags are exempt from calories because they are a gift.  All calories remain in the bag. But just to be sure gently shake the bag before opening to make sure the calories have dropped to the bottom.Innocent

Rule # 14 .... Never take any sweets to a school.  Mass hysteria sets in and you can be injured.

Nancy, you can take them to school under 2 conditions.
1. They are to be consumed in the parents car on the way home.
2. They are not your kids!

I think the condition is that the person handing out sweets must wear armor and have a pocket full of asprin.
