Gingerbread Man Mania

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Dunkin Donuts survey finds a significant majority of people who eat gingerbread men like to start with the head and work down.

`If one chooses to bite the head first, it indicates an achievement-oriented individual, a natural leader, who won`t take no for an answer,` said Alan Hirsch, director of the Smell & Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago.

Hirsch said skeptics usually go for the right hand, the creative for the left arm and the sensitive for the legs." UPI

I like to dunk the head of the gingerbread man in my coffee, before I eat it. I guess that makes me an achievement-oriented sadist for waterboarding the poor thing before I decapitate it.

I wish Dunkin Donuts would make a gingerbread woman in the likeness of Sarah Palin. The Palin gingerbread cookie would be a bit hit; liberals would love to dunk her in coffee and eat her.

Only 16 percent go for either arm, proving that they are wimps who want to do as little damage as possible on the first bite.

I`m guessing that about 1 percent eat the gingerbread man in one bite. Hello Oprah Winfrey!
