A new Wal-Mart opened in my hometown recently, and while there, my Mom and Dad bought this box of frozen cookie dough.

What startled me was that they were all ready formed for cookies. All you have to do is take them out of a box, put them on a cookie sheet and bake.

Have Americans become so lazy that they can't even be bothered to slice their cookie dough anymore?

There are actually several strange things that I have seen over the past couple weeks that have caught my attention. "Make your own hand lotion" kits. Would it not be easier to purchase something from your local mall? Another strange item was "Dancing Bon-Bons." Little chocolate covered raisins in a vibrating cup (operated by 2 AA batteries). What exactly is THAT supposed to be? *laugh*
