Girl Scouts are Evil


Well...no...not really.  It's a fine organization, much better than the homophobic quasi-military group available to boys.  Still, I do wish the GSA would quit forcing me to buy their damn cookies every year.

Of course, Girl Scouts don't actually sell the cookies to me.  I get them from the mothers of Girl Scouts at my place of work.  They usually hit me up on my way to the vending machines or scouring the break room for some left over snack; when I'm so hungry that you could sell me gum scraped off the bottom of a chair.  The cookies seem good when I order but usually disappoint.  Dry, mostly tasteless, and expensive....about 15 cents per itty bitty cookie.

Yet, year after year, I buy a few boxes.  Absolutely not a good thing to be chomping on while trying to lose weight.

I do it for the girls.

For the next 80 days, stay away from GSA mothers. Or, perhaps wrap them up and give the cookies away as Christmas gifts.

Hey those thin mints are pretty damn good if you put them in the freezer!!!

I take that you don't like the BSA...

I never seem to run into those ladies/girls selling the cookies, so I seldom get to buy them.. And when I get to their normal hangs, Walmart, etc., they are not their either... Probably a good thing anyway, don't need the added weight they would give me...

I'm actually addicted to Samoa's and have been known to buy four boxes at once. That's why I always try to avoid girl scouts standing outside Walmart, too. I simply can't say no.
