Strike Cookies!

I didn’t make these bad-ass WGA picket sign cookies, but I did eat them today on the picket line at NBC Burbank, and man, alive, what a treat! These sweet, buttery picket signs — which I just realized look a bit like WGA crucifixes — were positively union-tastic!

Donated by a crazy-nice WGA supporter, aspiring writer/actor/comedian, Michaela Meyers — that’s her in the photo by fellow striker, the Slackmistress below — these cookies rocked!

Sure, the frosting got a bit messy at times — it was like, Degobah damp out there today — but the buttery goodness of these cookies could not be denied. Not only were they the most original baked goods I’ve seen on the line so far, they were also the tastiest!

And when coupled with the delicious tuna salad sandwiches donated by a supportive Teamster’s wife — not pictured, but trust me, they were better than anybody’s momma ever made, and wrapped in wax paper to boot! — today’s picket line offerings could not be beat!

Thank you Mrs. Teamster & Ms. Meyers…your “food support” is appreciated by us all. But, um…maybe a little more by me, if you know what I mean…

  1. Thankfully (at least for Drew Carey’s pocketbook), you got some food from a few other people so Mr. Carey doesn’t have to keep shelling out big bucks to pay for your meals at Bob’s Big Boy.

  2. BTW, Ms. Meyers could take a lesson from farmer’s daughter Christine when it comes to decorating cookies. That penmanship has much to be desired. Makes my haphazard Day of the Dead cupcakes look like a blue ribbon prize winner! 🙂
