This story has been floating around the internet as a chain letter and has unfortunately worked it's way into my hands. I'm pretty sick of hearing about it so I decided to enhance the story. The first half I copied verbatim. The conclusion was improved and may soon include an animated (or real life) re-enactment of what might have happened.) Click here to see the original story.

My daughter & I had just finished a salad at Neiman-Marcus Cafe in Dallas & decided to have a small dessert. Because our family are such cookie lovers, we decided to try the "Neiman-Marcus Cookie". It was so excellent that I asked if they would give me the recipe and they said with a small frown, "I'm afraid not." Well, I said, would you let me buy the recipe? With a cute smile, she said, "Yes." I asked how much, and she responded, "Two fifty." I said with approval, just add it to my tab.

Thirty days later, I received my VISA statement from Neiman-Marcus and it was $285.00. I looked again and I remembered I had only spent $9.95 for two salads and about $20.00 for a scarf. As I glanced at the bottom of the statement, it said, "Cookie Recipe - $250.00." Boy, was I upset!! I called Neiman's Accounting Dept. and told them the waitress said it was "two fifty," and I did not realize she meant $250.00 for a cookie recipe.

I asked them to take back the recipe and reduce my bill and they said they were sorry, but because all the recipes were this expensive so not just everyone could duplicate any of our bakery recipes....the bill would stand.

I waited, thinking of how I could get even or even try and get any of my money back.

I just said, "Okay, you folks got my $250.00 and now I'm going to rip your nuts off. So I had a plan. Seven of my goon friends and I waited for the unsuspecting waiter to get off his shift one night. As he exited his job we captured him and proceeded to shove a cookie press filled with this delicious recipe up his butt. Revenge is sweet, cookies are sweet, getting cookie dough shoved up your ass sucks.

(Recipe may be halved.):

       2  cups butter,                     4  cups flower,
       2  tsp. soda,                       2  cups sugar,
       5  cups blended oatmeal**,         24 oz. chocolate chips,
       2  cups brown sugar,                1  tsp. salt,
       1  8 oz. Hershey Bar (grated),      4  eggs,
       2  tsp. baking powder,              3 cups chopped nuts (your choice),
