Cookies!

This is one of my favourite shirts, given to me from a friend. Has anyone else noticed that English speakers seem to be obsessed with cookie inspired figures of speech?

  • tough cookie

  • smart cookie

  • that's the way the cookie crumbles

  • caught with the hand in the cookie jar

  • website cookies

  • what, do you want a cookie now? (as a sarcastic comment)

  • cookie-cutter houses or other things that all look alike.

  • come to the dark side: we have cookies.


The only German cookie related figure of speech i can think of is:
  • Du gehst mir auf den Keks! (You are stepping on my cookie = you are annoying me)

We Germans are so much fun...
