...Including a robot made of cookies.

What, you're bringing me cookies? Hooray!
I could sit here and eat them all day.
Such a tasty delight,
I'm just ready to bite,
...But they're chock-full of eggs, did you say?

It's been a very cookie-full day today, which makes it truly shocking that I've eaten no cookies at all. First there was the giant platter of cookies brought by the stone rep who came to present at lunch, which have been sitting around on the layout table making my brain hurt from the effort of not eating any (see limerick for explanation). Then there's the matter of the holiday gift catalog which came today from Apple Cookie & Chocolate Company, which consists of cute gimmicky cookie gift baskets you can give out based on your field of work. I leafed through it, of course, because for pete's sake, it's COOKIES. In the Plumbing & Mechanical section I found a gallon bucket of cookies in a container marked HVAC: Heating Ventilation And Cookies.

It might only be hilarious if you deal with construction and know that HVAC stands for Heating/Ventilation/Air Conditioning, but I've been falling over myself laughing all afternoon. Cookies!

you don't have to deal with construction to know what HVAC stands for. Come on.

Come on, yourself. I didn't know what it meant until I started working for an architecture office, and I doubt I'm the only Cementhorizon reader whose hobbies don't involve air circulation systems.

HVAC also comes up if you hang around mechanical engineers a lot, since it is the only professional thing they're good for.

That's a little joke, there...I got nothin' but respect for the MechE's.

Every time I see the title I put on this post, I can't help thinking it would be much better if I'd scanned and posted the picture of the robot made of cookies. You know.... the robot made of cookies.
