The Great Gingersnap Deception

Pete Brown - 08 June 2006

I like to find patterns in things. I especially like to find duplications, such as when a package of cereal only has one cocoa puff or biscuit or bit photoshopped and duplicated to create a pile of them on the front of the package. Take a close look next time you or your kids have breakfast.

This box of ginger snaps is especially rich. The front of the package has just a couple snaps, duplicated and rotated to create all the cookies you see. More interestingly, though, each of the snaps has had the "cracks" in the cookies stamped in. Look at the middle of the cookies and you can see the same pattern on all.
