Wait, Secretary of State John Kerry said what?

“I actually was having a wonderful dinner at one of the establishments in Faneuil Hall. I hope many of you have been there. And the friends I were with — and we did enjoy one bottle too many and we came out and — I don’t know if you’ve ever had that late-night chocolate chip cookie craving, for the right reasons.”

— Secretary of State John Kerry in a speech at the U.S. Export-Import Bank Annual Conference in Washington on Thursday about the origins of the cookie company he founded in 1978 . Knowing laughter apparently ensued when Kerry referenced late-night cravings, which we’re going to go out on a limb and assume is a thinly veiled reference to “the munchies.”
