Oatmeal raisin Asians?! Scooby snacks?! Was this the best that the self-proclaimed lyrical genius McCoy could come up with?

It's the perfect example of a band with something to say transitioning into one with something to sell. The premise for "Cookie Jar" wasn't bad, per se, but it's sort of a missed opportunity. "I want to be faithful, but..." sets the stage for a potential conflict, the opportunity to explore the constant internal struggle with temptation that the character faces. Despite "wanting to be faithful," the rest of the song isn't consistent with that. Instead, it seems to embrace infidelity and becomes an exercise in rhyming nationalities and cookie flavors.

Besides, how strong of a metaphor is that anyway, especially when "cookie" is a common euphemism for a certain part of the female anatomy. It didn't require that big of a leap or stroke of genius to come up with the concept.
