Who is the Cookieman and why is he giving away money?
In the fall of 2008 some guy brought 526 fresh baked chocolate chip cookies
to the Playa del Fuego festival in Odessa, Delaware. He proceeded to make
LOTS of friends giving them away all weekend. He earned himself the name
“Cookieman.” In the spring of 2009 he and his minions baked up 777 CCCs and
gave them away at PDF. More friends were made. This got Cookieman thinking.
“Maybe I should sell these cookies at my pizza shop” he said to himself. But
Cookieman just couldn’t bring himself to charge people for the cookies…even
at his pizza shop in far away NH. “The cookies have been a gift and should
remain a gift.” Somewhere in the summer of 2009 while planning his Burning
Man trip Cookieman got the idea to sell the cookies for $1.25 each and save
the $1 profit to go into a scholarship fund to send one lucky east coast
burner to Burning Man 2010! Thus making each cookie sold a most fantastic
The average cost of a burning man trip from the east coast is about $1000.
With ticket cost, flight, food, &supplies...it’s easy to spend that and
more… trust us! So 1000cookies gets you $1000! So why not 1000 questions on
the application for this scholarship?
Yup…1000 questions! These questions were collected mostly at Burning Man
2009 and at PDF Fall 2009 and some collected from friends and relatives and
anyone else that would pay attention. You can imagine the ‘interesting’
nature of some of these questions. Basically the only requirement for a
questions was that it end with a ? so yeah.. good luck!
