Every Man For Himself

Crying into our computer

When Insomnia Cookies was brought to Morningside Heights, many of us saw it as a sign of better times.  No longer would we have to walk out in the cold to Westside for some glorious snacking.  Instead, the cookies would come to us.  Just two days ago, apropos of nothing, we received the following tip:

“These are the best cookies and brownies I have ever tasted and I have lived all over the country and on several college campuses. Mrs. Fields cannot touch these. I wish they had as many Insomnia cookie stores as they do McDonald’s… I would enjoy it a lot more !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

Tonight, though, disaster struck.  After online orders did not go through, one Bwogger called Insomnia customer service, only to hear the following:

“That location is so swamped with orders that they’ve shut down their ordering services for the night.”

We are on our own, people.  Run for cover.  The night is dark and full of terrors.

        @BWOG COMMENT-TRON v9.0 OPTIMIZED Yeah, reading it again it’s not a very funny gimmick unless it’s in small doses that are far between. I think I’ll take your advice and retire it.

    @fogie OK guys. I will let you finish. But P&W’s demise was the real tragedy at that address.

    @Anonymous This is not health food! Eat some kale instead!

  • It's Monday Night! says:

    @It's Monday Night! Why are people going to 1020 and ordering Insomnia Cookies? Has the collective IDGAF level on campus skyrocketed recently, or is it just me?

    Fuck it. 10:42am on a Tuesday? I can’t deal with this shit. I’m going to get drunk.

  • OUtRAgE says:

    @OUtRAgE Look very carefully and you will find the calories for the cookies posted underneath in almost invisible, very dark green. They’re clearly trying to hide them!

    1. welp says:

      @welp I for one am not sorry that I can’t tell how many calories they have.
