Giv'em a Hand

Did you know that palm oil, yes, palm oil is used in the making of Girl Scout Cookies?

Oh yeah, and I probably don't have to tell any of you that the harvesting and production of palm oil almost necessarily means upsetting the natural habitat of orangutans


The Girl Scouts of America's dirty little secret was finally revealed by a couple of their very own, two Michigan youngsters whose exposé began innocently enough: the simple pursuit of yet another merit badge.  But from that humble beginning, a national crusade has quickly developed against the future production and sale of the offensive cookies.

So, the next time some cute young girl in a brown or green uniform appears at your door and asks if you would like to buy a box or two, just before you slam the door in her face, feel free not only to scream, "No!", but also to deliver the little monkey killer a stern lecture about the importance of sensitivity to the environment.
