Warning: Girl Scout Cookies Ahead!
posted by: Amber Johnson
It’s the most wonderful and dreaded time of the year: when the Girl Scouts start peddling their wares to the tune of Thin Mints, Caramel deLites, Samoas, Tagalongs and Do-si-dos. The Girl Scout’s cookie tradition began when an Oklahoma troop held a school bake sale in 1917 and it has evolved into one of the biggest non-holiday seasons of the year.
So, as you’re blowing your healthy-eating New Year’s resolution, here are a few items to keep you laughing.
Chad Prather. Girls marching. Enough said.
Eleven-year-old Charlotte McCourt’s efforts to sell her cookies are hilarious. When she heard that her dad’s friend from high school was “very rich,” she saw the perfect opportunity to unload 300 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies.
Transparency was the name of her game so she wrote a hilariously honest review of the cookies. Her most despised flavor? The dreaded Toffee-tastic.
“It is a bleak, flavorless gluten-free wasteland,” Charlotte wrote. “It is flavorless as dirt. I give it a 1.”
When her father discovered the email in his sent folder on his computer he sent it to actor and TV host Mike Rowe – with whom he works on his podcast – who was so amused that he shared a video of himself reading the letter on his Facebook page.
At last count, Charlotte has sold 7,000+ boxes and has provided us all with pure comedy gold.
