Partially eaten cookie from last year's sale

Its that time of year again when we all indulge our sweet tooth for a little bite of heaven : Girl Scout Cookies!

This year there are some new varieties to try out, Mini Me Shortbread, George Washington Carver Peanut Butter Squares, and of course, Chocolate Obama Thin Mints.

After last month's leveraged buy out of the Campfire Girls the scouts stand alone and unchallenged as the reigning queens of the door-to-door cookie empire.

Their hard scrabble start in the 1950's was given a boost when they won a large lawsuit against the American Forest Boys for discriminating against the girls right to wear scarves, just like the boys. Later their high-powered legal team was able to topple the Pillsbury Cookie Co. and absorb all but the name of Mother's (Old Fashioned) Cookies.

Floating a record breaking IPO in the 1980's during the junk bond heyday, the entrepreneurial club gained enough cash in share sales to buy out the rest of the Western world's cookie factories.

Congress was forced to break up the megolithic organization into "Baby Scouts" much like Ma Bell because of fears of market tampering and Anti-trust issues. Come on girls,America needs those cookies!

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
