It is difficult to make a man miserable while he feels he is worthy of himself and claims kindred to the great God who has made him. ~Abraham Lincoln

Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,
Is it safe to cool cookies on newspaper instead of cooling racks? And then eat them without warry of ink contamination?
- The Cookie Monster

A: Dear Cookie Monster,

You need not worry about ink contamination. I used to eat newspaper all the time when I was a little kid and I turned out fine. The ink is non-toxic. It may cause black hands and toungue, but it won't cause you to get sick.

A: Dear Mewannacookie!

In lieu of newspaper, you can a ripped-open use paper grocery bag.
