Midnight in the Garden of Thin Mints and Samoas

Via CNN, the Savannah Morning News reports that the city of Savannah has ordered the Girl Scouts to stop selling their cookies at the intersection of Oglethorpe Ave. and Bull Street — which incidentally is the site of the home of Juliette Low, founder of the Girl Scouts of America:

Meanwhile, elsewhere in Georgia, cops have rousted a frightening cabal of the green-clad cookiepushers from a strip mall. Some may see this as another example of the triumph of Leviathan legalism over common sense, but I for one am glad to see that our long national Tagalong nightmare may finally be drawing to a close.

However, I want to know when someone is finally going to bust the GSA for their insane claim that a mere four cookies comprise a serving of Thin Mints. Four sleeves, I could believe…
