A new addition to the Big Book of Bunkum:

cookie-cootie (n.) one who bite biscuits with ease but has some difficulty with dust bunnies and speeding bullets

e.g., A little miffed at the latest applicant to the pearly gates of heaven who demanded three wishes: (1) an apprenticeship with the Cookie-Monster (2) a date with a Hostess Twinkie and (3) a ton of S’mores Bars, ...St. Peter replied thoughtfully, "Hold on there cookie-cootie -- we've got cutbacks up here, so you'll just have to make do with reheated angel-food leftovers."
