    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.

    It’s also very easy to “nibble” down a whole “sleeve” of Ritz Crackers.

    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.

    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.

    She asks that question like it’s a problem or something. Does she not understand Oreos?

    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.

    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 a good sign that Roscoe is licking his chops. I hope Earl didn’t give him Oreos; chocolate isn’t good for dogs.

    Given his expression in the third panel I’d say Roscoe definitely loves Oreos.
