Re: Blistering blue barnacles

I will admit to not knowing enough about the internal structure of the Girl Scouts to say one way or the other, but... it seems weird to me that, if they're exploiting their labor to push cookies, wouldn't they have cookie drives more than once a year? Quarterly maybe? Given the demand for them, it ...

While I know that Intent Isn't Magic, I'd honestly say that Intention can be helpful here.

And less Religion. At least for the Boy Scouts. Not sure if the Girl Scouts give a shit about faith, wouldn't be surprised if they don't. With Boy Scouts, your mileage varies by the troop, but they all officially have it in the US.
