Pop Culture and Cookies

Butterscotch Chip Cookies

This blog challenge is turning out to be a true pop culture education for me!  I’m hip to most of the mainstream performers—Lady Gaga, Usher, etc.  But there are tons of musical performers that are totally new to me. 

As I was selecting the song for today, I had decided that I wanted to share a food-related selection.  In my search, I kept coming across songs by the group Shonen Knife.  Out of curiosity I checked them out on Wikipedia.  I learned that they’re an all-female Japanese pop-punk band formed in Osaka, Japan in 1981.  Hum. . .Interesting, right?  They seem to write a lot of songs about food.  Even more interesting!  So today we’re going a bit out of my comfort zone with the song Cookie Day by Shonen Knife.  Let me know if your students are familiar with this one, okay?

What kind of cookies do you think these are? LOL
