Is ginger used in embalming? No. Is it an effective herbal ingredient in tinctures that increase longevity? Not really. Can you make a ginger tea that will make you look younger, reduce wrinkles, stem the effects of Alzheimers, macular degeneration, or arthritis? Sadly, no. Ginger is great for things like stomach aches and nausea, but will it lead to a longer life? Probably not.
So it is with this cookie cutter that we remind ourselves of our mortality. The inevitability of death. The haunting spectre of Thanatos as he creeps up behind you, scythe at the ready... but it's not all bad news! At least we can get some cookies out of the deal, and that will make the years we have left to us that much more delicious!
Gingerbread men are a delicious holiday cookie, but the ones we make have a twist. The cookie cutter we use, you see, cuts a wee little man shape out of your rolled gingerbread dough, while the other side presses a cutesy little skeleton into the surface. The finished cookie looks like a Gingerbread x-ray. A GingerDEAD man, if you will.
