“The internet is too pc. Disabled cookies? In my day, they were called broken biscuits”

An “HTTP cookie” is not something that’s eaten, but there have been several jokes. “The internet has become too politically correct. What’s all this nonsense about disabled cookies? In my day they were called broken biscuits” was posted on Twitter on August 30, 2009.

There is a jocular drawing of “disabled cookies.”

“Have you tried disabling cookies?"/"Well, I once bit the legs off a gingerbread man!” is a related joke.


Wikipedia: HTTP cookie
An HTTP cookie (also called web cookie, Internet cookie, browser cookie, or simply cookie) is a small piece of data sent from a website and stored on the user’s computer by the user’s web browser while the user is browsing. Cookies were designed to be a reliable mechanism for websites to remember stateful information (such as items added in the shopping cart in an online store) or to record the user’s browsing activity (including clicking particular buttons, logging in, or recording which pages were visited in the past). They can also be used to remember arbitrary pieces of information that the user previously entered into form fields such as names, addresses, passwords, and credit card numbers.

I tried to find a picture of broken biscuits on the internet but apparently I need disabled cookies.
