Today's Random Thought

What was the reasoning behind making cookies look like elves? How did we become callous to this? They don't taste like elves, so why did we go down that road? The "Little People" of the world aren't offended that we are biting into their cookie likeness and that is just weird if you think about it. I would be if I learned that Africans were eating "Eric" shaped sugar cookies made to look like a Caucasian hillbilly from Tennessee. I don't know? Mr. Peanut freaks me out too. I don't know if we'd be so cavalier about eating peanuts if they all looked like Mr. Peanut. Anthropomorphism and food just don't seem to mix but we've accepted it somehow.
