Penn State Has Strong Feelings Regarding New Oreo Thins

In what can only be described as the biggest story at Penn State since November 2011, the university’s official Facebook page revealed (then quickly deleted) its definitive stance on Thins, Oreo’s new, skinnier cookie:

Here at Penn State, we are passionate about three things: academics, sports, and store-bought cookies. Rest assured, we won’t find any skinny Oreos in Findlay commons come syllabus week. “Grrrrrrrrrrr” indeed.

UPDATE: In an unexpected twist, Penn State has publicly solidified its stance on Oreos while recanting its previous position that Oreo Thins are “sucky.”
