Yep sure was. Along with two glasses of milk.
Works for me !
A couple of days ago, I encountered the neologism “Snaccident” . It’s what happens when you open the package of snacks and accidentally eat it all.
I’d say Rosco was involved.
I hope Roscoe didn’t eat any.
That would really put the weight on!
It’s also very easy to “nibble” down a whole “sleeve” of Ritz Crackers.
My sentiments exactly…
Nice try Earl ! Caught with your hand in the cookie jar .
… or … “Here a nibble, there a nibble, everywhere (or every 15 minutes) a nibble nibble …”
You had Roscoe at “half package of Oreos”, Opal.
Oh, gawd, didja halfta mention oreos this early in the morning?!? What IS it about those damn things: they’re worse than potato chips for not being able to have just one. . .
Your “something to tide you over” is about to drown you, Earl!
Which half package we talking about? The 6 cookie pack or the tube? Just 3 would dull appetite but half a tube would destroy it for hours along with blood sugar levels. Earl apparently has no more self control than I do.
I cut back on dinner and eat part for lunch. Today will be a baked potato.
Today is just great again because the Precious Roscoe is in two for the frames again . The curious look in the first frame , but the look in the forth frame is just out of this world . His tongue out of his mouth tells me that he and Earl enjoyed the cookies together . Thanks to Brian for a great comic today .
Roscoe heard the word “nibbles” and licked his chops.
Oh Earl……… SHAME ON YOU.!
She asks that question like it’s a problem or something. Does she not understand Oreos?
No dear it was Hydrox cookies
Oreos are food for the soul
And here we see the perfect example of a pavlovian response. She said “Oreos” and the dog started salivating…
I agree with Earl.. lunch is a habit that can be eliminated as we get older.
I eat a very large breakfast and then might have a snack ( fruit ) around 3 pm. I have a light, balanced dinner around 7 pm. I might have a piece of chocolate/cacao about 11 pm.
That is more than sufficient for a man my age and weight.
Years ago, I heard a guest on a radio program talk about how some companies engineer foods so we want to eat more, regardless of how good or bad for our health the food is. Years before that, I read about research that said lab rats can find Oreos as addictive as a recreational drug.
I’ve eaten 1/2 a package or more of Oreos in one siting, when I intended to eat 3 or 4. For that reason, I don’t buy them anymore. I imagine I’m something like a recovering alcoholic, except my addiction is to Oreos and other cookies. When I’m in the grocery store, I try to avoid the cookies aisle.
She says that like it’s a bad thing!
While a half-package of junk food disappears in Pickles, we have someone in Doonesbury using junk food for meals.
Just do not let Roscoe have the crumbs. I wonder how many are like Earl?For me, I had to major reduce down on portion size for lunch time as a bite as peanut butter and cottage cheese, and turkey sandwich with lettuce. My dinner is size of a saucer plate. Working slow weight loss.
Not likely for this old geezer, unless it’s Double Stuff.
Quit licking your lips Roscoe, Oreo s are no good for dogs.
Dinner or supper?
Not a good sign that Roscoe is licking his chops. I hope Earl didn’t give him Oreos; chocolate isn’t good for dogs.
NUM NUM NUM!!!COOKIES!!!!!!guess who??
Earl, Oreos! A man after my own taste in cookies.
well played, Opal
It was 25 nibbles if there were 50 in a package
Given his expression in the third panel I’d say Roscoe definitely loves Oreos.
wow according to all these comments oreos can be terribly addictive! Glad I hate them lol! Actually my husband doesn’t like them either:)
