The major cause of our winter bodies, Girl Scout Cookies, just got more expensive - a box of cookies now costs as much as a grande latte. The Girl Scouts say that "because inflation has increased the cost of doing business for troops, service unions, and the overall council, a price increase is necessary to keep up with the ever-increasing costs of running a nonprofit organization." I skipped enough Intro Econ classes to know that there's enough demand for those fucking cookies that a box could cost me my pinkie toe, and I'd still probably pay for it.
Apparently, a ton of the Girl Scout's profits go to support troops stationed overseas, so I guess $5 to binge eat 3000 calories while watching Scandal is fine. Because tis a far far better thing doing stuff for other people.
