Brownies or cookies?

My girlfriend (the Goddess!) just popped out 2 trays of brownies - one for us, one for her coworker's brithday!
My FOO question to all of you:
Brownies or cookies?
go ahead and feel free to add specifics to the 2 generalized treats.

I go Brownies and cold, cold milk everytime.

Definately brownies.

But then often cookies.


And as an aside, its "I couldn't care less" if you could care less, then why don't you. (just a minor pet peeve )

You can have your pet peeve; it is your right as someone who sees fit to correct people's grammar across Al Gore's internet. There is a reason for everything and my reasons are to stick splinters of thought under the skin of life or just piss grammarians off...depends on the day.

Just so you know Sailguy, I am starting a team, much like the Justice League. Our purpose is to foil proper grammar usage whenever we can. You have a certain talent for this, whether you know it or not. From this day forward, I will refer to you as "The Guy Who Starts Sentences with Conjunctions Man" (we can use "TGWSSC Man" if you prefer). The choice is up to you!

Touche'. One day, I will have to learn to let things just be. I think that my grammar always, without fail, goes to pot when I mention anything about someone else's.

Upon more thought overnight, I am sticking with brownies, and pushing the cookies farther down my list.

Sailguy,

As a further aside, it's "definitely" instead of "definately" and it's "it's" not "its".

SteveE

P.S. Brownies over cookies. Brownies with vanilla ice cream over plain brownies. Chewy brownies over soft brownies. Brownies with walnuts over brownies without 'em.

Random, but related thoughts on this topic:

The brownie: very possibly nature's most perfect food.

Definition of a cookie: a small, round, flat pastry with chocolate chips. (Anything else might be good, but it is not really a cookie).

Whaddaya want for nothing? A rubber biscuit?

And...

Whaddaya want? Good grammar or good taste?

Too much chocolate???? Phrase does not compute, no matter what the context!!!!

Brownies for me. So long as they're nice and moist, so the centre is a little bit chewy. Yummmm.......
