I'm not crying, it's just been raining on my face.

I'm almost clothes-rentingly upset, dudes. As of today Mother's Circus Animal Cookies are no more. This is one of the first effects of the economic breakdown that has touched me personally. Goodbye, Mother's Circus Animal Cookies. I will mourn your loss, little pink and white sprinkled buddies.

UPDATE!
No news is apparently not good news. No takers for the failed cookie company as of right now. Excuse me, I'll be publicly weeping for the next few weeks.

THAT IS INCREDIBLY DEVASTATING!!! I have to purposely avoid them at the supermarket because otherwise I would eat the whole bag single-handedly, all the while hiding them from my children... How did you hear this terrible news?!?

Boo-hoo! I love these cookies. Maybe we can buy a ton, put them in food storage cans and gobble them up when we really crave them. OR sell them at a remarkable profit! Hey, I'm just trying to find the silver lining. So sad.
It was good to see you at LOB!
