Just look at it.
Banana dalek, Sylvia Toth's box of custom bitmap shortbread cookies, Chapel Hill, NC, USA
Why?! Dear god, why!?
“Bananas are good.”
Because Daleks and banana shortbread go together like peanut butter and jelly?
Is it secretly meat inside?
Course it is – Davros, the awesomest banana-dalek of all, is back.
But this one isn’t listed in the online store!!! WAAAAAHHHHH!
How on earth do you get a negative flip (the image is reversed) on what is almost certainly a digital photo? Do people do that on purpose for some reason?
Edit: In thinking about it, it is probably the image of the dalek printed on the cookie is the negative flip, not the picture of the cookie overall.
What we really need is a banana dalek cookie slicer.
http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3504, for those who have a 3D printer.
edit: Oh, I forgot about the infamous banana slicer. Anyway, for those who want a Dalek shaped cookie, there you go.
Why does it look like packing for something else?
Yeah. My first thought on seeing that picture was, “What kind of weird sex toy is this?”
New theory: Boing Boing is a front for that dastardly villain Mojo Jojo. The banana fetish, the “look at it” phrasing. It all adds up.
That he is partial to eggs doesn’t really matter, imho, it’s the manic obsession with food objects that is the clue here.
“ONE EGG LEFT?! For a nutritious breakfast, TWO eggs is the minimum requirement! And I have but ONE, which is ONE shy of TWO! And it is TWO that I need! Curses! I must immediately purchase some eggs, for I need to have breakfast, and without the eggs I cannot have the breakfast that I so require!”
It is simply amazing and it will be a delicious one. Cheers
The easiest banana cake to make, just right for using up those very ripe bananas in the fruit bowl! I make this one in a loaf tin then you can cut slices and butter them for an after school treat.
Ready in 45 mins :)
This one’s a bit of a stretch, Cory. Do we even know if it’s real banana flavor?
I think you mean (best Dalek voice): “JUST-LOOK-AT-IT!”
I am very disappointment in this thread. I was very much looking forward to some excellent Banana+Dalek hybrid jokes.
Bad thread, bad!
This, this… my friends, is why we can’t have nice things.
Awesome! cept it’s against my not religion to eat a cookie with a URL on it!
Hey, that’s my URL
doctor who Food happy mutants just look at it makers nc not food
