I love cookies, especially when you dip em in milk and they get all soft and scrumptious. OMG I’m getting hungry.
Cookies are the feel-good food of my life. It is impossible to have a cookie and not feel totally happy and blissfully content. Or so I thought…
Apparently, Ted Kefalino, a baker in Greenwich Village created the treat to honor the newest addition to the U.S. line of presidents. However, many don’t entirely see how this cookie honors anything, let alone our President. In fact, people are deeming it offensive and the local community is now boycotting the bakery.
He calls the cookies “Drunken Negro Heads” and offers them as a suggestion to compliment the customers’ cup of coffee. Yes, because I always love my coffee with a side of racial slur.
“A shocked customer tells My Fox NY that Ted Kefalinos, proprietor of Lafayette French Pastry, asked her, ‘Would you like some drunken negro heads to go with your coffee? They’re in honor of our new president. He’s following in the same path of Abraham Lincoln; he will get his.'”
Some have even interpreted that last bit as an “insinuation of assassination,” which it most definitely seems like. I don’t know about you, but that doesn’t sound like honor to me.
Kefalino doesn’t seem to see the problem with his tasty treat and can’t quite comprehend why people deem it offensive, which makes me wonder if his cakes are as dense as he is.
I have never been on to turn down a cookie, but this is definitely one sweet treat I will be passing up. What about you? Would you have a “Drunken Negro Head” with your morning brew?
