New York Magazine’s Grub Street blog has a great idea for New Yorkers planning to watch the Vice Presidential debate between Sen. Joseph Biden and Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
It seems that this week, Zaro’s in Grand Central Station has been selling black-and-white cookies bearing the faces of the presidential and the vice-presidential candidates — take a look at the picture. According to Grub Street, the photos are printed on rice paper using inkjet printer cartridges that have been loaded with food coloring. Is that possible?
Anyway, the Veep cookies sell for $3.25 each, in case you want to spend your tax dollars on a cookie bearing an uncanny likeness to Sarah Palin. Grub Street says some people have been buying the cookies just to spit on them and then trash them. Now there’s an idea.
This country never fails to amaze me.
