Save the date, and don’t forget to honor the everlasting joy of chocolate biscuits and cream

Break out your party hats and grab a cake, because today is the one hundredth anniversary of the Oreo Cookie.  The biscuit-and-cream concoction originated in a small bakery in New York and has evolved into a cultural mainstay.  More than 95 million Oreo Cookies are now sold to consumers in more than 100 countries every day. These sales account for around $1.5 billion in annual global revenue.

In other breaking news, scientists are still trying to determine the underlying cause of the increasing obesity epidemic.
