Monday Morsel: Not My Gumdrop Buttons!

Q. How did gingerbread become so gender-specific? 

A. Gingerly of course.


"Of course, when gingerbread cookies are shaped like everything from popular politicians to baby animals, polite consumption can be tricky. Is it barbaric to bite off the head first? Or worse to start by amputating an extremity? If you nibble on decorations first, does the plaintive voice of that character from Shrek echo in your imagination ('Not my gumdrop buttons!')?"
