    I guess the girl scouts set up on the wrong street corner. The scouts were competing against the drug dealer so she tried to buy all of the cookies. It was just a business move and the cookies would be a nice gratuity for the drug dealer’s patrons and herself.

    3 $20 bills for only 3 boxes of cookies? I knew the price had gone up over the years, but gosh.
