Where girls grow strong

When I was at the supermarket the other day, the Girl Scouts had their booth set up outside trying to fop off all the rejected boxes of cookies on the unsuspecting public. I didn't stop to browse, because they never have Samoas at the reject cookie booth and there's never a discount because the cookies are rejects and I have a problem paying $17 for a box which contains approximately 1.2 ounces of cookie and 14 ounces of packaging material.

But that's beside the point.

When I came out of the store, the girls were still there trying to hock their second-hand wares, but this time, this time... they were actually dressed as Girl Scout cookies. They were not just in the familiar brown and green uniform garb. They were actually wearing cookie costumes, flailing their little arms about with glee, doing their best to imitate the actual behavior of a Girl Scout cookie.

And now I could finally answer Wednesday Addams in all honesty, "Yes, dear they DO have real Girl Scouts in them."
