No. Not Thin Mints. Nooooo...

By May 20, 2011

Follow me on:

In the worst news to hit the Girl Scouts since, well, ever, a pair of scouts have discovered that Thin Mints ... the only Girl Scout cookies worth buying, IMHO ... are destroying rain forest habitat for endangered orangutans.

The two Michigan scouts took it upon themselves to research the primates, and found that their habitat was being cleared to make way for palm oil plantations. Palm oil is a key ingredient in Thin Mints (and many other junk foods), even though it's been linked to heart disease as well as environmental destruction.

You can have my Thin Mints when you pry them from my cold, dead ... oh, just take 'em. I'll find some other way to have a heart attack.
