Farce officially became reality today: The New York Times reports this morning that nutrition zealots are actually using the so-called obesity epidemic to bash the Girl Scouts for selling their delectable cookies. We should have seen this coming. And in a way, we did: We’ve jokingly warned in a TV ad that scouts may be the next victims of greedy trial sharks looking to cash in on the obesity hype. And just yesterday, we emailed a CCF cartoon offering a glimpse of a world in which food cops controlled Girl Scout cookie drives. This just goes to show that in the world of the food police, there’s no merit badge for good taste.
