Those huge things they are holding up are panties huh? Look more like mosquito nets for a platoon of soldiers!

Anyway considering the weather in Kazakhstan perhaps fur-lined would be best .... fake fur of course.

Colorado Girl Scouts Not Allowed To Sell Cookies Outside Pot Shops

Danielle Lei, an enterprising Girl Scout, sold more than 100 boxes of cookies in just two hours outside of a San Francisco medical marijuana dispensary last week. But the Girl Scouts of Colorado leadership is killing the buzz for local members, saying that Colorado scouts cannot likewise sell cookies in front of pot shops, despite recreational marijuana being legal in the state.

"Our position is really pretty simple," Rachelle Trujillo, chief marketing officer for the Girl Scouts of Colorado, told The Huffington Post. "For years in our council, we've said it's not appropriate for Girl Scouts to sell cookies outside of adult-oriented businesses, and marijuana dispensaries fall right in line with this policy. There's a place for everything, and just like a liquor store or a gun show, a marijuana dispensary isn't a place for young girls to be selling cookies. There are plenty of other options for customers of adult businesses to purchase cookies at other locations."

A post on the official GSCO Facebook page noted Friday that cookie sales also aren't allowed outside of bars, strip clubs or casinos.
Reactions to the organization's policy were mixed, with some commenters applauding the move.

"The decision that GSCO has made is in line with Girl Scouts of America and was based on the overall [organization's] values," Kerry Garcia of Denver Garcia of Denver wrote on Facebook. "This decision however enables our organization to stay out of [the] political spotlight and instead continue to have the Girl [Scouts'] leaders and children focus on learning to be self sufficient and successful women."

Others on the GSCO page said it was hypocritical not to allow cookie sales in front of marijuana dispensaries.

"Grocery stores sell cigarettes and beer," wrote Kim Hartman O'Donaghue of Colorado. "Is it okay for [scouts] to sell the cookies outside of grocery stores?"

Regardless of the Colorado organization's decree, the association between Girl Scout cookies and recreational pot is already pretty well-established. A popular California strain of marijuana -- a blend of OG Kush, Durban Poison and Cherry Kush,according to Leafly -- is named "Girl Scout Cookies" in honor of the snacks. Last year, a version of the original GSC strain took first prize at the U.S. Cannabis Cup in Denver.

Give me a break!

Is it me or are rules and regulations taking the fun out of life? Another reason to love Thailand. Oh right and no snow. Mine you it is a tad cool here in Chiang Ma. :mrgreen: i

Children take note. As winter sets in, a growing number of US cities are banning sledging - or sledding, as Americans say - on public property.

Does that mean those children living in those States will not receive presents off Santa's sliegh? I was thinking of the elves handing Santa the prsents and thinking the police might think they are children.
I totally agree with the ban, children should not be allowed to have fun.... what about the billy carts? and then we'll move on to the football fields, gymnasiums, volleyball courts, tennis courts and ice skating. Lets put "No Entry" signs up at kids playgrounds too for that matter.....better still put up signs that say "All children will be shot on sight".
I think this one should go in "Only in America".
I can actually out-do your article, but I'll sleep on it first.

You have to love this part of the story, "Instead of doing the job they're paid for, these self-obsessed clowns think they're on a mission to save the world's burgeoning polar bear population,' writes Richard Littlejohn"

I wonder if they will collect the bin from Littlejohn's house next week
