The Girl Scout Cookie rant: ‘Sold through a weird child army’ (Video)

John Mulaney of “Saturday Night Live” has a bone to pick with the Girl Scouts. It’s not the taste of Thin Mints or Samoas . . . or the other cookie flavors.


The Samoa, sold soon by a Girl Scout troop near you.

In a rant during a “Weekend Update” segment in 2010, the SNL joke writer urges Scouts to have faith that their cookies are better than a once-a-year treat like candy canes — or worse, the McRib.

He also promotes the idea of selling them in stores rather than through “a weird child army.”

Although Mulaney is right (cookies aren’t for sale online), the Girl Scouts have released a new, handy iPhone app for finding the girls in green who sell ’em by the box.

Watch the video below.
