The One Where The Two Freelance Writers Spend Way Too Much Time Emailing About A Milkshake

Mark: I don't think I could ever ingest something called The Cookie Chumper. Sounds too much like gonzo porn to be any kind of edible item.

Me: The Cookie Chumper is fabulous. They really understand the importance of the cookie per cream ratio, which is key.

Mark: But why "chumper" and not "chomper"?

Me: I think chomping is what your teeth do with heartier food that's difficult to tear through -- like a well-done steak sandwich -- whereas chumping Oreo cookie crumbs amid milky surroundings calls for a lighter touch. Are you really asking me to decipher the semantics behind the naming of a milkshake?

Mark: I guess I'm confused because I think of "chumping" as "to make a chump of." So in this case, you'd be trying to make a chump of a cookie milkshake. I.e., "You're my bitch, shake."

Maybe that does make sense.

Me: If I'm paying $7.04 for it, that shake had better be my bitch.
