NOBODY WILL WANT THEM AFTER THEY’VE BEEN SAT ON

Metro Atlanta Girl Scouts are sitting on nearly $3 million worth of cookies that they cannot sell because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Just crush them and add them to the gelati before the feds start asking too many questions.

The French Prime Minister would pay a premium just to smell their cookies.

Same old problem.

Yeah, I knew a guy in high school who'd take the whole lot.

*Chortle* at cfjk.

Ralph - two kids set up a lemonade stand at a four way stop in an exclusive neighborhood I was driving through the other day. I couldn't get to their stand, too many cars had lined up to buy a drink! Made me think of long ago when it was safe to assume they wouldn't be robbed at gunpoint.

Not to worry. Bread develops mold after a few days. Ditto for cow milk. But fruitcakes, cookies, crackers are good for 30 years.

It's not because the scouts can't set up tables to sell the cookies. It's because most of their parents are working from home now and can't sell them to their co-workers. At least that's how I always did it. I can't tell you how many times I've had the pleasure of telling a patient they weren't having a heart attack and then asked them if they'd like to buy a box of Thin Mints. I sold a lot of cookies that way.

There are NO Girl Scouts selling cookies around here at all this year. This is very disappointing to some of us (i.e. me). I want my cookies!

I will be happy to do my part by buying all the Do-si-dos.

Cookie Monster to the rescue.
