Does anyone read the entire article before composing their witty headlines?

The website also reports that Thompson isn't even selling them for herself - the Samos and Thin Mints she peddled were to help out a friend.

She's not even a Girl Scout.

The Girl Scouts cookie selling is a scam and should be shown as that. Local troops get very little money per box. Plus they have to go out in the cold, door to door to sell them. A few times I see them at entrances to stores. That needs to stop too. Why should I have to bothered and given dirty looks because I don't want a box of overpriced crap.

Is Honey Boo Boo going to be on the box as a warning label against overconsumption of GS cookies?

I find simply saying "no thanks" gets the dirty little beggers off my back.

This started off as pity for the troops and then turned into a pity party for you.  Pick a side and stick to it.

That's what I thought.  I'm no Boo Boo defender, but this little girl is using her fame as a way to boost cookie sales for that organization.  And Girl Scouts didn't even have to pay to have a celebrity endorsement.

Personally, I see absolutely nothing wrong with marketing the cookies like that.  I suspect it became a big deal when one of the other mothers started to biatch and whine that her precious little MahKaylah didn't have 700k followers and wasn't going to be top seller this year.  And that's just not fair...because, you know...life is always fair and we should take away any and all advantages everyone has.

Actually, it's an issue because girls aren't supposed to sell outside their service area (basically, their school district). The exception is they can sell to PEOPLE THEY ALREADY KNOW that live in other areas. So, Grandma, their mom's high school best friend who moved across the country after college, that kind of thing. They're explicitly forbidden to sell to strangers on the internet. From girlscouts.org (they actually bolded the statement below):

"Although Girl Scouts of the USA does not currently allow online sales of Girl Scout Cookies, we are presently researching how to make it possible for girls to engage consumers in online sales, while continuing to help them develop critical and relevant entrepreneurship skills in the process.

All that says is that the GS haven't found a way to do it and are pissed that she beat them to the punch.  It's not about whether she should, they say they're working on a way themselves.  What better way to show  entrepreneurship skills than by viral mass marketing?

Sounds more to me like "Waaaah, we didn't come up with this idea...so NO ONE can do it."

Exactly.  Which explains my confusion over why they're throwing a fit about it.  The GS move several hundred more boxes than they would without her and they get a nice chunk of change.  Seems like a winning situation to me.

A few times I see them at entrances to stores. That needs to stop too. Why should I have to bothered and given dirty looks because I don't want a box of overpriced crap.


You are absolutely correct: the Girls make very little for their efforts. Learned the truth from my eldest sister, a past Troop Mom. Never bought them since.

What pisses me off is every time I've tried to make a straight donations to Girl Scouts selling cookies outside the Wal-Mart the Moms act all offended and refuse a donation. Every time. So fark them, the coonts.

What used to piss me off is bosses and management in the work place who pressure the wage slaves into buying "for their daughter". Fark you, you arseholes. Those who do this are bad as cops and politicians. Learn some shame and pride, you dipshiats.

Last rant: the Girl Scouts should have bank rolled a loan and opened their own cookie factory years ago. they would make good money and the stores across Americas would sell them in quantity. Idiots.

They're not allowed to take straight up donations. If you want to help GS, you need to buy cookies.

Also, from girlscouts.org: "With every purchase, approximately 70% of the proceeds stays in the local Girl Scout council and with troops to provide a portion of the resources needed to support Girl Scouting in that area, including the portion that goes directly to the group selling the cookies. The balance goes to the baker to pay for the cookies." They get 70% of the money. The girls in each troop get either $0.55 or $0.70 per box sold, depending if they preregistered for GS the prior year. My sister is the "cookie mom" for her troop (she has no kids, just thinks GS is awesome) and she said they sold about 2500 boxes.So her troop earned [*does math*] over $1300 for her troop specifically; I think they got the $0.55 payout because they were a new troop. Her local council got $5700 of the total $10,000 in sales, and the bakery got the remainder. The council uses those funds to run and maintain camps and other Scouting events, pay for GS employees, and subsidize underprivileged girl scouts (who many not be able to join without financial support).

/I'm a math nerd, so I totally grilled my sis on how the math plays out.

A local troup in my area stopped it entirely and sold popcorn instead.  Got a much, MUCH higher return and managed to get in right before the Chirstmas holidays so they also got in on the chocolate pretzels as well.  Head office wasn't too happy with them over that.

While I can see the worry over taking away from other troops in other areas that are buying just due to the reality TV factor, I really have a problem with them getting up in arms over any help that can be gotten. And it's actually not unusual for their family to do charity work. It's shown a great deal on the show.
