This cocaine tastes like Oreos

If it's Wednesday it must be Morford on corporate scientific engineering of addiction.

Then came a flawless little orgasm of a headline, a pitch-perfect, viral-ready soundbite of awesomeness packed with all the keywords Americans love most – Drugs! Cocaine! Oreo cookies! You! Rats! Addiction! Obamacare! Sex! – all about this cute little study that reveals how it lab rats, not all that surprisingly, love those famous, chocolatey discs of sugar and lard just as much as they love cocaine, and btw just kidding about the Obamacare and the sex. Sort of.

OMG, Oreos! Right? Tasty and barely digestible wheels of refined sugar, lard, chemicals and $20 billion/100 years of slightly evil marketing? And cocaine! Popular and cheaper-than-ever whiffs of refined coca plant, $1 trillion in completely failed drug war and absolutely zero marketing required, ever? Perfect.
You're on your own. I'm gettin' the munchies. Gotta go chop up an Oreo or ten and line 'em out...
