Brooklyn Cookie Takedown 2016 – Escape From Planet Cookie!

There is only one sure-fire way to stay sane and cheery this particular holiday season- eat your height in cookies. Eat cookies until the word “Election” loses its meaning, and just becomes a crazy nonsensical sound in space.  That’s my plan, and I’m stickin to it ho ho ho!
