{neiman marcus cookie myth}

I'm sure many of you out there in the blogosphere have heard the Neiman Marcus cookie myth of a very nice woman dining at Neiman Marcus, who enjoyed her chocolate chip cookie so much, she asked a manager for the recipe. The manager smiled and said, "Sure, the recipe is yours for two-fifty". Assuming that meant $2.50, the woman happily told the manager to put it on her account and went home with her new cookie recipe. Later she discovered her account had been charged $250! For the cookie recipe! As revenge she began sharing the recipe with as many people as possible. Neiman Marcus apparently got wind of this myth and decided to put all questions to rest posting the coveted recipe on their website - free of charge.
