Not surprised that some rightwingers are offended - the Girl Scouts are totally hep to the step.

Unlike the Boy Scouts, they don't discriminate against gay people.

And the Thin Mints are seriously, dangerously addictive. Especially if you freeze them first!

I wonder what Mrs. Betty Bowers will have to say about this!

"Some Girl Scout mothers called it soft-core porn.

"It embarrassed me to look at it with my husband," said parent Shannon Donaldson."

Ok not to knock anyone's religious and moral beliefs but..bwahahahahaha! Oh my soft-core porn! (I hope this isn't terribly offensive Rob or Craig considering the content.) Odds are many of these boycotters look at much worse in their own homes. Embarrased at the pictures? Why should she be embarassed unless she has something to hide? What would she say if she saw a medical dictionary with visual aids? We need to label medical dictionaries as porn! Honestly! It says illustrations, so they are probably just drawings...if that is soft core porn well then those medical dictionaries are hard-core! I don't know what else to say.

Give me a dozen Thin Mints (I'm with you, Master...*frozen*). I can tank my diet for a week AND rationalize that it's for a good cause.

An openly gay male co-worker... a single father of two adopted daughters...is a leader in his daughter's troop in town. Philosophically, the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts are miles apart. When my son was at Cub Scout age, we bypassed the opportunity because it didn't sit well with us. An later, the legal brouhaha involving the Boy Scouts and their homophobic practices validated my initial instincts. I extrapolated that the Girl Scouts would be of like mind and never did anything about signing my daughter up for a Daisy Troop. This kinda makes me wish I'd have been a little more open-minded. Oh well, I'll soothe my conscience by ordering extra cookies this year. Works for me.

Sorry I was so busy ranting that I forgot to say the frozen thin mints are the best. After that I like the Samoas. re: re: re: Stock up on those Girl Scout Cookies, kids!

Well, here goes my diet. A case each of Somoas, thin mints and those lemon cookies.

I was also struck by the quote of the woman who was embarassed to look at the material with her husband. If you feel that way, honey, you have some serious problems that go beyond what your child may be learning in the Girl Scouts. If you are embarressed to look at educational materials with your spouse, how are you going to teach your children about sex? Sounds like Waco is raising another generation of ignorant children who at age 14 will become pregnant because they were told by little Brittany down the street that you can have sex and not get pregnant if you drink a 2 litre bottle of Coke right afterward and urinate it all out.

I already ordered my boxes of cookies 2 months ago. *mmmm Thin Mints* :) Now I just have to wait for them to arrive.

I used to be in the Girl Scouts (when I was 6 or 7 years old, lol but still). It was such a waste of time in my opinion. I never made it past being a Browny.

As far back as I can remember, the Girl Scouts have been a very socially progressive organization. In the 1970s, they supported the ill-fated Equal Rights Amendment (and there were several protest bonfires of Girl Scout Uniforms over that, too!).

Here's a fun link with Girl Scout Cookie facts.

Master! OH MY GOD - someone who knows about Betty Bowers - I must go see her today and see what's new on her site!
"I don't really get the ending,all i can go with is when after several months,Judith saw Pat sang,and later she kissed him on the toilet,after that the story back to where Pat went down from the stage after he'd sung,and he went to the italian lady.I just don't get it,what Judith exatcly meant when he kissed Pat that she had seen,and did Pat end up together with The Italian Lady?Please help me,thank u very much!" Quote from someone on IMDB in reference to a movie he/she didn't understand. Such grammar!

The cutest Girl Scouts ever sell their cookies in the plaza on campus here. Before I know it I've shelled out ten bucks and lord knows how many calories.

But the real question is, when will the Cookies become Atkins-friendly?

The thin mints are great frozen, followed by shots of Baileys!!!

I ordered four boxes, and they usually sell them from tables in the lobby of my office building!

(And me on a diet!)

VC, they now make sugar-free (probably taste-free) cookies now. Will that help!

WCA, I think you should suggest that to the Scouts as a fun-filled 'menu planning' idea. It sounds delish!

Now that the Christian far-right aren't going to get their thin mints, they will be even more bitter and deluded!

You're right that was entrapment. Nobody can resist the siren call of the Girlscout Cookies. I sometimes wonder if it was the smell of those cookies that lured Orpheus and not the song of the sirens
