What kind of cookie? PSA: The cookie reward was first presented in 2002 on "Ballot Box"; a defunct Slate board, by a leftist negro named Mookie from the windswept S.Dakota plains. The concept of "translation" also came from that board from a computer programmer named White Rat. It was stolen by a total asshole from Texas by the name of Stan Hill and picked up by national media types. White Rat was furious his claim to fame wasn't recognized and would launch 3 and 4 hour spam attacks on the board. Because their security was hilariously easy to defeat, he could paralyze the site on a whim and his whims were usually to talk about his enormous wealth and coy fish. Mookie and White Rat fancied themselves rivals but they never had an open competition because Mookie was a creature of the night while the Rat was an early-riser. But back to your cookie, Mr. Votto....you need some new material and please don't try to translate this message....it's all been done before.
