Francis Farmers of the world: unite and take over.
Two girl scouts have raised a stink by refusing to sell the Thin Mint cookies because they are made with palm oil and the palm oil industry is endangering orangutans. Why is it that the smugness of morally superior PC pre-teens is even more annoying to me than the grown-up version?
Maybe they could do a union field trip to "help" intinerant farmers and earn their Che badges, hmm?
Or, do some crappy public wall art and earn their Diego Rivera badges?
Let's think of more forward thinking badges Girl Scouts might earn in the perfect world of their imagining...
Sorry, I was tired and not feeling well when I posted this last night, and I maybe didn't fully flesh out my thoughts here. What I want to know is did palm oil production only begin AFTER deforestation of rain forests? Is Indonesia the only place in the world which produces palm oil, and if not, have they verified that the palm oil in those particular cookies came from orangutan habitat?
I have nothing against orangutans. If not for their magnificent hair color alone, I have high regard for any creature like myself which can chew its own toenails. I hope they're around for many moons to come.
