Woman sues EU claiming cookies made her pile on the pounds
A British woman is suing the European Union over a claim that accepting cookies from diet websites made her gain weight.
Sarah Jones, 24, says that she was trying to drop a few pounds before her wedding but being constantly asked if she wanted to accept cookies proved too much for her will power resulting in massive weight gain.
“I needed to drop a dress size quickly, so I was looking at a lot of diet websites and beauty blogs for tips,” she told us.
“But every time you go on a website it asks if you want a cookie, and that made me think of cookies, and before you know it I’m in the kitchen scoffing a pack of Tesco Finest White Chocolate and Honeycomb cookies.”
The Cookie Law which requires reputable internet properties, like The Post Truth Post, to inform users about the use of small data files known as cookies started as an EU Directive and was adopted in law by all EU countries in 2011.
Sarah, now housebound due to her weight, says she holds the EU responsible for ruining her life by making websites constantly remind her about delicious cookies and wants compensation.
“If it wasn’t for those meddling eurocrats and their cookie popups I’d be happily married and eight stone today.” she sobbed through a mouthful of double chocolate valentine cookie crumbs.
