There is certainly no waste not, want not badge for Girl Scouts of America, at least not in Southern California where over 13,000 boxes of the organizations famous cookies were bulldozed to bits in a warehouse as bulldozer operators gleefully yelled Goodbye girl scout cookies!
After the May incident, when the cookies were sent off to a landfill, leaders of area food banks are up in arms about the so-called service organization's wastefulness.
Bruce Rankin, Executive Director of Santa Monicas West Side Food Bank, watched footage from CBS 2 in Los Angeles, and was shocked as two heavy-duty construction vehicles repeatedly trounce through huge mounds of bright purple cookie boxes
Rankins organization serves young children, the working poor, the disabled, and other needy groups in Sothern California. Theyre supplied through food donations, but must purchase around half their food to meet demand.
We would gladly accept the cookies, Rankin said, still awed by the video hed seen. They would probably disappear as fast as any product we have here. The cookies, which were well within their expiration dates, were traced to the San Gorgonio Council of the Girl Scouts in Redlands, California.

Not the thin mints! Nooooooo!
Those cookies must be made by a union.
If they bulldozed any Samoans they are in big trouble —
Ban cookie assault vehicles.
...think of all the people spared from type-2 diabetes...
Best target I found were the charitable groups who deal with women's prisons.
Cookies are far easier to reroute I am sure. There's no excuse unless these were contaminated in some manner.
People are killed all the time. Animals are abused all the time. People starve all the time. elections are stolen all the time. The msm lies all the time. What difference does it make?
Oh, the humanity! *SOB*
13,000 boxes? Heck, if they wre all Thin Mints, I could eat that many at one sitting, LOL!
The Dark Lord’s consort is pleased...can’t have these things falling into the hands of the obese serfs.
This really is an economic crime. If the objection is that people will wait until the cookies come up for sale at the lower price, then at least three answers are to tighten up the sales projection methodology to reduce the supply, do a better job on distribution, or cut prices to raise the demand.
I know people who only buy wrapping paper immediately after Christmas because it’s on sale, and the wrapping paper industry seems to be ok with that. Cookies well within their expiration date should be able to be marketed profitably without hurting regular sales.
You take an organization that represents values and morality, force them to accept everything that represents moral decay and then you get upset when they do not give you a handout?
Sounds about right for KKKalifornia.
Makes me wonder, did the girl scouts ever actually MAKE the girl scout cookies?
These days, I look at a Norman Rockwell painting and it looks like the Wizard of Oz...
The person sitting next to me went to a donut kiosk, put in a dollar bill that unlocked the door and retrieved a donut.
Two minutes later, the guy came that serviced the kiosk. He opened the locked door, took out the shelf holding the donuts and dumped them all in the trash. I would estimate there were about 25 donuts.
Then he refilled the kiosk with fresh ones.
The guy next to me that just finished his $1.00 donut looked at me and said. "This is not going to be a good day."
I know what you are thinking Freepers. No. Nobody retrieved a free donut from the trash can.
Obviously they buried it in a cookie-free zone.
“13,000 boxes? Heck, if they wre all Thin Mints, I could eat that many at one sitting, LOL!”
My problem, too.
Certainly the food nazis are applauding this. Nobody, and I mean NOBODY needs to be eating this much sugar. This was done for the good of the people.
Besides who wants to support an organization like the Girl Scouts?
