Catholic Bishops Are Investigating the Girl Scouts Because They’d Rather Not Talk About What They Do With Boys

Because, apparently, there are no other world issues worth looking into that might actually be offensive to practicing Catholics (like, I don’t know, world hunger, children dying of starvation of disease here and abroad, things like that), the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops is conducting an “official” investigation into the Girl Scouts. They claim that since some Catholic churches sponsor Girl Scout troops, they have every right to question what is being done there, but mostly, they are concerned about affiliations with certain women’s health organizations that … yes, this is related to abortion. Abortion and Girl Scouts.

Rejoice, For the Girl Scout Cookie-Flavored Nestlé Crunch Bars Are Upon Us!

I might be able to top the Benedict Cumberbatch-Frankenstein thing I just posted, because there is another wonderful thing coming to America in the month of June. Remember the Girl Scout cookie-flavored Nestlé Crunch Bars we told you about a while ago? They are happening. They are real. They are coming to stores in June for a limited time. I’ll provide you information on the featured flavors after the jump, and you will be very pleased.


For great justice

Suspects Arrested in Girl Scout Cookie Money Robbery (No Visible Scars, Though)

In a glorious update of a previous story, two suspects have been arrested after allegedly robbing a troop of Girl Scouts of their cookie money in Texas. You may recall that the girl pictured above on the left, Iravia Cotton, punched one of the suspects in the face before he got away, and that the girl pictured on the right, Rachel Johnson, was dragged by the culprits as they drove away. The latter also wished that the thief “had a scar” following the face-punch. While there was no talk of scars, the cops believe they have identified the jerks who took hard-earned cookie money from Girl Scouts.


Oh My Stars and Garters

Are the Girl Scouts Really a Bunch of Radical Pinkos? Maybe Compared to the Boy Scouts…

There has been a lot of hullabaloo (as the kids call it) surrounding the Girl Scouts these days, and a lot of conservative politicians and citizens are boycotting them because they’re considered a “liberal” or even a “radicalized” organization. But you never hear this kind of protest over the good ol’ Boy Scouts. Why is that? Are the two youth-oriented groups really that different? The Atlantic has a closer look, and you might be surprised at what they found.

They Earn All the Badges: Girl Scouts Punch Thief in the FACE After Cookie Money Robbery

The headline speaks for itself: Two Texas Girl Scouts, Iravia Cotton and Rachel Johnson, chased down a horrible person who stole $200 of Girl Scout cookie money from their booth. Iravia punched the guy in the face. Rachel grabbed on to the guy’s car and was dragged as he drove away. You might be wondering if they’re okay, and I kind of think they’ve proven they can take care of themselves. Man, the things girls need to do to earn badges these days!

Thing That Might Have to Exist

The Girl Scout Cookie-Flavored Nestlé Crunch Bar

Someone posted this picture of a Nestlé Crunch Bar on Reddit that, according to the label, is flavored like a Girl Scout cookie known as the Thin Mint. And that on the aforementioned label, this is part of a series of “Limited Edition Cookie Flavors,” which is plural. Which means there might be a whole line of Nestlé Crunch Bars that are flavored like Girl Scout cookies. But for now, all we have is this mysterious sample candy, taunting us … playing with us … making us crave a minty, crunchy chocolate dream … Even the delusion is better than Girl Scout cookie lip balm.

What happens now? Petition? A march on Nestlé headquarters? I will go to Vevey, Switzerland if I have to, if that’s what it takes. I will go to Vevey, Switzerland.

Girls Scouts Not Allowed to Wear Their Uniforms to a Virginia Church for an Infuriating Reason

A Virginia church has banned local Girl Scout troops from wearing their uniforms to and meeting at their establishment. I’ll bet you’re wondering why. I’ll bet you’re thinking, “Gee, I hope this isn’t related to something about abortion rights, because Girl Scouts are in elementary and middle school, so seriously, what is this about?” It’s about abortion rights. The church says that the Girls Scouts of America’s “perceived connection” to Planned Parenthood goes against their “message.” Yup. This Chantilly, Virginia church is exercising its rights — to discriminate against young girls.
