So bronxbee sends me a link and is all:
And I clicked through and was all meh:
Neat. But I did gingerbread TARDISes last year. Don’t wanna repeat myself too much.
And that was that.
But then in the course of my regular surfing, I came across another link at Sideshow. And then I got right back to bronxbee:
I take it back. Those cookies are very cool and worthy of being a Thing. I just didn’t realize how cool and worthy until I saw this:
I can’t believe Geeks Are Sexy skipped right over the coolest aspect of it!
Geeks Are Sexy is the link that bronxbee sent and that I just glanced at. It’s the first link above.
Here is the pic Geeks Are Sexy posted:
What Geeks Are Sexy utterly failed to mention is what begins with Boing Boing’s headline:
3D printed TARDIS gingerbread cookies
and then continues at Mad Art Lab:
A couple days ago, Maggie sent me a box of stuff she’d printed on Mad Art Bot. One of the things was a cookie cutter.
I haven’t quite gotten my head around this whole 3D printing thing the cool kids are into, but I do concur with bronxbee, who, when alerted to the true Thing-ness of these cookies, said:
wow! just being able to design and make your own cookie cutters! how awesome is *that*?
Very very awesome.
One more from Steve D. at MadArtLab:
There’s a TARDIS-shaped hole in the fabric of the universe. Or at least in the fabric of the cookie dough.
