The dangers of excessive abbreviation

…just waiting for a render to finish and, while looking around, my eyes fell upon the label on a box of cookies I’m taking to my party for the last day of my wonderful AP Psych class:

INDULGENT ASST PACK
COOKIE 24CT CC, TC, PB

After some long and careful consideration, I have finally come to an assessment of what the label actually MEANS, but for a moment, consider the implications of being FAR TOO SUCCINCT:

INDULGENT ASSISTANT PACK
COOKIE 24 COURT CARBON COPY, TIME CODE, PACKARD-BELL

or:

INDULGENT ARYLSULFATE SULFOTRANSFERASE PACK
COOKIE 24 CONNECTICUT CREATIVE COMMONS, TOXIC CHEMICALS, LEAD

Let this be a lesson to you… somehow.
