Default Girl Scouts and their evil cookies

I'm calling for a boycott of Girl Scout Cookies.

Summary:
Child Labor in America
Exploitation of children by the cookie-manufacturing corporation(s).
Unethical selling practices
Sub-standard cookies


I'm getting sick and tired of seeing little girls peddling the so-called
"Girl Scout" cookies all over the place.
These girls should be in school getting a proper education, not peddling
some corporation's cookies to make a buck for some organization to get a
small cut in return.
If this were going on in some other country, some American will be
crying "Child Labor!".


It may be child labor, but hardly any worse than the chocolate bars
schoolchildren are forced to peddle to pay for sports equipment, band
instruments, art supplies, etc.

While I normally don't buy Girl Scout cookies, I was pretty much forced
to several years ago. I was smoking a bowl on my front porch when a
fancy Jaguar pulled up and a snotty little rich girl got out and
approached me. I was pretty sure she could smell the weed, so I bought
three boxes just to make her happy so she wouldn't nark on me. Anyway,
Girl Scout cookies go great with pot and milk.

anything at all else - they're going to last you a number of winters, and will generally keep on being in style, as a result saving you the north face clothing how long they should wash will be to sing the "Happy Birthday" track twice.

Every girl scout I bought cookies from, seemed to really enjoy selling them, so I hardly see it as labor. Particularly after it gives them a sense of accomplishment and self-confidence.
