[prMac.com] Miami, Florida - In this story, a small cigar-smoking pachyderm with attitude finds his way to a house in the suburbs. A nice young woman offers him a cookie.
That one act of kindness begins an unintended chain of events that tests the young woman's patience and resolve and, if she allows things to get out of hands, could alter her life permanently. If you give a conservative a cookie, he'll need something to wash it down with, so he's going to ask for a glass of scotch, and then another, and then another. After a brief nap on the kitchen counter, he wants to freshen up. While in the bathroom, he peeks into the young woman's medicine cabinet and finds a blister pack of pills. The little gray conservative is outraged, telling the young woman that if her insurance paid for the pills, she's going to have to post nasty videos of herself on YouTube.
After a full day, including accusations of anti-Americanism and even a marriage proposal, the hide-bound mini-mammoth finds he is thirsty once more. When he demands a glass and some ice for the contents of his hip flask, the young woman makes her a choice.
"If You Give a Conservative Cookie" incorporates 3D renders, the same type used in Disney/Pixar's "Toy Story" series, in telling the story of what happens when an unwanted guest shows up, tries to take over, and just won't leave.
