Bathroom Monologue: Show of Hands?

Raise your hand if when you were a kid you didn't realize "fig" was the flavor of the cookie, and so thought Fig Newton was the name of the product. So when they were raspberry-flavored, they were Raspberry Fig Newtons. Apple? Apple Fig Newtons. And how surprised were you when you found out that figs were a fruit? There's nothing profound here. Just thought I'd ask for a show of hands.


  1. It's not a cookie, it's fruit and cake!
    Man was I confused when I found out about real figs.
