Here's a money-making idea for the Girl Scouts: How about Maui Wowie cookies?

Times are tough all over these days, even for the Girl Scouts. Apparently, sales of Girl Scout cookies have been down across the country, so the Girl Scouts announced this week that they are extending cookie sales until March 29.

But if the Girl Scouts really want to make more dough (or sell it), perhaps they should try a different strategy. Instead of trying to sell more cookies, maybe they should offer a little something extra with (or in) each box, like these three enterprising souls did. They could even use a special name for these special orders, like Maui Wowies.

And I have the perfect celebrity pitch man, Michael Phelps.

THIS JUST IN:
Requests for the new cookies are already pouring in from the State of Michigan! Apparently, not only do the new cookies taste yummy, they're medicinal.

LOL - I could use one of those Maui Wowie's right about now!

I believe the legalization of marijuana will occur during the current administration, as well as the associated tax upon the sale of it.

So should I put you down for one box or 10, Powa?

As for you, LMC, I bet you could whip up some mighty fine Maui Wowie cupcakes. ; )

Duuuuude! Speaking as someone who could eat an unhealthily enormous quantity of Thin Mints, wouldn't the addition of the munchies accelerate that to near perpetual motion?

The Grateful Dead Badge would be a cool addition to the scout uniform...

Exactly my point, Dave: Increased cookie sales! A win-win for everyone. So how many boxes should I put you down for? (Btw, I think Thin Mints would be an excellent choice for the base note.)
