Since it's Girl Scout Cookie season, let me walk you through the solution to a hypothetical word problem.

Problem:
"Jill" purchased one box of Samoas from a coworker. There are 7 servings of cookies per box, with two cookies per serving, and each serving contains 150 calories. When her coworker delivered the box of Samoas, Jill ate 14 cookies with her morning coffee. How many bacon cheeseburgers could Jill have eaten instead?

Answer: One.

While I completely sympathize with the lack of control with Somoas, I think I'm going to be sick....

Seven servings per box?! Um, yeah...I only buy the varities that have two sleeves to a package--each sleeve, of course, being a single serving.

And now I understand why Luther Vandross had that stoke so young.

Have you heard about the new burger - with the "bun" as two glazed donuts? It's only 1,000 calories.
