NEW YORK (AP) _ The maker of Little Debbie cookies is suing a novelty store chain over a T- shirt that shows the company’s familiar logo - a little girl in a sun hat - pushing marijuana-spiked munchies.

A federal judge Monday banned Spencer Gifts from selling its ″Little Doobie″ T-shirts for 10 days. He told Spencer and McKee Foods Corp. to reach a settlement by April 13 or return for a hearing.

The shirts show the Little Debbie girl smoking a joint and offering to ″blow your mind ... not your waistline″ with a package of ″12 individually warped cakes.″

The little girl, featured on packages since 1960, was modeled on Debbie McKee, whose grandfather founded McKee Foods Corp. His name? O.D.
