The way the cookie crumbles

Gazette staff February 1st, 2012

The Oklahoma 529 College Savings Plan has linked the piggy bank to the cookie jar by partnering with the Girl Scouts to get Oklahomans to save for college.

As part of the effort, a contest offers $1,529 in a college savings account for the top-hawking scout.

Competition should be pretty stiff; who can refuse a Girl Scout pedaling Samoas? Just think: Your stockpile of cookies could get a Brownie to Rice.

The partnership also includes an online contest at for folks to vote for their favorite Girl Scout cookie. This election year our money’s on the Thin Mint or Mint Romney.

Thanks to a recent viral video, which contained a "Girl Scout" (singular, not plural) protesting the Girl Scouts’ stance on Transgendered boys being permitted in Girl Scouts, I am a lot more inclined to blow a ludicrous amount of money on a miniscule amount of cookies.  

Protesting a protest never tasted so good!
