After reading this all I can say is was it really necessary to take THREE cookies? Greedy! No wonder bad things happened...


This is a really short short story, and really disturbing. Chock full of cruel girls that I imagine look just like Bratz dolls, massive amounts of product placement for a 3 page story, sacrifice and disillusionment, this story cuts deep for being so little.

Definitely read this one - Ponies can be found here.

Trudi Ack! Gruesome! Almost gave me the same feeling I had after reading "The Lottery". Thanks for the link!

KristenR Definitely disturbing...I was so surprised by the turn the story took.

Kelly (and the Book Boar) Ha! TheOtherGirls wouldn't want to be friends with Barbara once she starts porking up from all those cookies!
