More Girl Scouts show they're bad at spotting fake cash3/15/2012
Another Girl Scout troop has been cheated during a cookie sale, which has to mean there's an underground economy that uses Thin Mints as currency. That has to be the reason why people have been ripping off middle school scout troops. The latest victims were New Hampshire Troop 60916, who learned that some card-carrying Jerkface paid for an $80 cookie order using fake $20 bills. "If there's young kids that are going to be handling the money ... it's usually too late by the time they do realize it is fake," Captain Bill Avery told WHDH-TV. Sadly, that $80 will come out of the troop's own uniform pockets. Maybe it's time to introduce a counterfeit-spotting badge?
