"C" is for "carb-counting.........."
re your statement "THIS BLOG ENTRY is brought to you by the letter T, which rhymes with P, and that stands for Puritanical" and later in the article: ..."puritanical meddling" Aw, come on , Ben--give the Puritans a break. They are forever getting an undeserved bad rap and they really were (are) on our side! "P" more correctly stands for the second word in "Food Police" -- or maybe "History Police" who prefer the caricature & willfully haven't figured out real Puritanism yet!
As for the rest of the story I couldn't agree with you more. 1 carb cookies indeed! Surely they jest (but probably not) :-/ Except for your [most likely]inadvertent mistake about the Puritans you've got it nailed! Carry the torch high, friend.
