Usually, the Girl Scouts get a folding table near a door to sell cookies.

Today?

The Arsenal Mall gave them a kiosk. Right in front of Claire's.

And advertised. Big sign saying "Girl Scout Cookie Sale 2/6!" Yep. Someone figured out that you can get people into a mall in a recession using the promise of Thin Mints.

There were people queuing up as the girls were unpacking the cookies. They're gonna have a *good* day.

That's some pretty good real estate to give them! Warmer, room for customers to be warm while they think about cookies... Yeah, the girls will do an awesome sales day.

Better that than what was in front of Claire's last time I was there....it was Black Friday, and they had this couple who were singing christmas songs, and they were AWFUL. Like...chalk on a blackboard high Cs.

It was painful to listen to, and people *told* the poor girls working at Claire's they were sorry, but they were leaving because they couldn't browse while that was going on.

Thin Mints are ever so much better!

Niiiiice.

My chiropractor was selling girl scout cookies for his daughter, and said he would bring the cookies to his office for people that bought them. SOLD!!

here is the craziest thing I have seen about girl scout cookies in a long time -- this TV crew got an interview with two teenage sociopaths.

Holy crap -- as the title says, "white people wtf are you teaching your children?"
