What I’m Hooked On

Earlier this week, a study conducted at Connecticut College shocked absolutely no one by showing that Oreos can be as addictive as cocaine. From a neurological standpoint, of course. In rats. Regardless, those are some highly amusing, but none too surprising, results that probably led some parents to try and calculate just how much of the tuition they pay for their kids to go to that school went to feeding cookies to rodents.

How much of your $58,780 went into this?

Why pick Oreos to test this out? The study (for those of you too lazy to read the actual study, but somehow capable of reading this bullshit) says it’s because they are “America’s favorite cookie.” Now, I certainly enjoy Oreos from time to time, but they are by no means my favorite cookie. I’m more of a chocolate and peanut butter man.

Lee Powers said he prefers these, but they don't exist anymore. Bummer, dude.

So while this study is interesting, I find it in no way inclusive or indicative of how addictive certain other delicious and wonderful things may be. So, to any researchers out there, here’s a list of things I consider way more likely to get me jonesing for a fix than Oreos:

  • Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
  • The feeling of putting on brand new underpants
  • Law & Order: SVU marathons on USA
  • Pad Thai
  • Throwing a swarm of bees at somebody’s face in Bioshock or Bioshock 2

    Eat stinger, you slicer bitch!

    Eat stinger, butthole!

  • Throwing a murder of crows at somebody’s face and then throwing a fireball so they’re getting attacked by flaming crows in Bioshock Infinite
  • A sense of superiority
  • Pirate treasure
  • Singing “Is This the Way to Amarillo” in the street while drunk
  • Alison Brie



  • Complaining
  • Fantasizing about people who almost hit me on bikes being hit by a truck that’s carrying a load of bikes
  • Marauding
  • Watching Netflix on the toilet
  • Stubb’s Smokey Mesquite BBQ sauce

Sucks to be you, bra!)
  • California-bashing
  • The comedy of Patton Oswalt
  • Also Jim Gaffigan

  1. Tell you what, I’d like to rocket a sleeve or two of Oreos right up my nose section.
