If you haven’t checked your Oreos lately, be advised that the Double Stuf variety falls short of its denomination:
Math teacher Dan Anderson, who runs the blog A Recursive Process, did the math for us.
He weighed 10 regular Oreos, 10 Double Stuf Oreos, 10 Mega Stuf Oreos and 5 wafers, then performed some basic calculations to determine the creme content of the aforementioned cookies.
Anderson discovered that the Double Stuf contains, not 2.0 units of Stuf, but a mere 1.86. And you should not be surprised to hear that the Mega Stuf doesn’t even qualify as a Deka Stuf.
Says Walter Olson at Overlawyered:
[W]ho would like to predict whether some law firm will file an intended class action over this problem within the next twelve months, on a scale where zero indicates “completely confident that there will not be such a lawsuit” and 10 indicates “completely confident that there will be”?
Put me down for 8.14 (which, incidentally, is 10 minus 1.86).
You know, we never had these problems with Hydrox.
