Smart as a Cookie

Just a random thought: Why do people say, "He is smart as a cookie?" Someone has got to help me out on this one because I don't know any smart cookies. If cookies were really smart they would make themselves not taste so good to avoid getting eaten.

As I was writing this, I thought of another one I need help on: "She is cute as a button."

I'm so thankful that when I was a boy and was said to be as cute as a "button" that the "on" was added to the word.

Perhaps what the saying means is that the idea of the cookie is smart. Who can deny that the creation of the cookie was not a smart idea? Bu then, if that was the case, the saying would probably be "smart as the cookie". Sorry, I totally pulled that out of the air.

I've heard Tollhouse has a higher IQ than Oreo. That's probably the reason.
