They had GS troops peddling cookies inside the American Airlines Center. Troops selected by lottery, super lucky ones.

That should have the [sick] tag, taking advantage of people like that. If the weren't high, they'd realize how overpriced gs cookies are and just go to their local convenience or grocery store to get the same thing at half price.

Little biatch.

I first saw this about a year ago, at the local clinic in Venice, CA. They were set up in a van in the parking lot so that people coming out of the clinic were presented with a full display of Thin Mints and all those other ones I don't care about.

Funny.  A friend of mine here in Colorado wanted to do the same thing with her daughter.  The Scout Leader supposedly had a conniption and squashed her idea.  We all bought the hell out of her cookies anyway.

I don't eat them myself (I buy them for my dad) so I don't know store prices but, I don't think 4 bucks is too much for a box.  Even if it is going to a horrible organization like the Scouts.

The girl scouts are a different organization from the practically LDS controlled boy scouts.

I doubt that one scout in one location can create a "bump in sales".  I do know that a story on Slate can give the rightwing AM radio guys fodder for a full day about how America is in decline.

No - they sold girl scout cookies at the university on a weekend at midnight or smoething - for some reason many of the students had munchies.

I heard that they promote abortion. Study it out.

They're no where near as moral as the Boy Scouts.

... Boy Scouts still ban the homogays, right?

Considering Girl scouts can get downright brutal when peddling cookies, I am willing to bet GS HQ is seriously considering opening a pot shop or 5000.

"Buy three boxes of Thin Mints and get the dime-bag half off."  the US Mint would just install the printing presses in the back room to save on time and shipping costs.

It was a passive aggressive jab at the people who usually arrive and trash the Scouts of America.  I'm a Life Scout (not active anymore) and while I don't agree with a lot of their past leanings, I think they are getting better.  I am also very glad that I experienced all that I was able to in the organization.  If I had children I would support their wanting to be in.  I'd just make sure they weren't in a bigotted troup.

That comment made LOL.  I really hope it's not true.  However, if it is I would love to sales figures.  I can just picture all the women thinking "I've been good today.  I deserve this".

I laugh at people buying these cookies for 4 or 5 bucks when I can get the samoas at Big Lots for 1.50.  I'd be shocked if they are not made by the same company.  They taste exactly the same.

Seriously. Samoas are the last choice* after thin mints, tagalogs, and of course dosidos or whatever they're called now which are by far the best.

*- except for shortbread which are of course totally goddamned pointless.

If the National Council would lighten up and let troops sell them on ebay (some do, but it's not officially allowed), they'd really make money. The fatasses in any region wouldn't cut down, they'd just shift purchases to other parts of the country when the local troop isn't selling.
