What do you see when you look at this picture?

I came across it at Ten Reasons, and at first glance I thought it was a plate of miniature Oreo cookies!

Ummm, maybe you were fasting when you saw it? :-)

Rachel Gray said...

Alas, no. That would have been a reasonable excuse. :)

I couldn't stop laughing because I can see the oreos , too! After I read the comments I laughed even harder!

Mary333 said...

Ha! My husband saw oreos, too! He was wondering why I was laughing so much and took a peek. Linda better put on her glasses!

Rachel Gray said...

Thank goodness I'm not the only one with such a disordered attachment to Oreos that I see them in a Rosary! ;)

Vincenzo said...

Oh now I see them!

Thomas Aquinas said...

You understand that theologically the white filling represents the action of sanctifying grace in our souls. The black outer crust represents our fallen human nature on one side and the temptations of the world on the other. Sanctifying Grace both purifies us and provides a barrier between those two sources of evil.

Thomas Aquinas said...

And by the way, pass the cookies, Albert, they're Great.

Rachel Gray said...

Now I feel so edified. :)

Gary Keith Chesterton said...

Mmmmm...Catholic Oreos.....

Albertus Magnus said...

You can be so pompous, Thomas, you dumb ox. No wonder none of my other students liked you.

You have forgotten the 1st principle of philosophy in your analysis.

As Aristotle often said:
"Sometimes a cookie .............
is just a cookie"

NC Sue said...

DARN.
Now I'm craving Oreos.

Rachel Gray said...

And sometimes a Rosary is just a Rosary, but not when the beads are black and reflecting white light. :)

Sue, you could satisfy your craving with some Oreo pops.
