National Cookie Day: 27 Delicious Zingers From Empire's First Lady

Pour a giant mug of milk, because you’re about to get a whole lotta Cookie.

The Internet tells us Dec. 4 is National Cookie Day, which means it’s our duty to take a moment and reflect on how empty (and way less zinger-y) our lives were before Empire‘s badass matriarch appeared on the scene.

As Mama Lyon, Taraji P. Henson has given us quite a few quotable moments — most of them at Anika’s expense. What better way to celebrate the day than by gathering a batch here for you to enjoy?

Click through the gallery below (or access the photos directly here) to re-live some of Cookie’s richest, most decadent put-downs — then hit the comments with any you felt should’ve made the list!

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!
