  •  Trans-fats! Yuk! (1+ / 0-)

    For years I have responded to girl scouts w/ cookies as follows:
    "I don't think this stuff's real good for people... tell ya what,  you figure out how much your troop would net from selling me 3 boxes, I'll give you that much, and you still have the cookies to sell to someone who's not so concerned about their health, OK?"
    Hopefully this gets the girls thinking about:
    1) Difference between gross and net income
    2) What's up with trans-fats, anyway?
    3) Moral choice between turning in the $3 or pocketing it.

    I end up giving them $3 and saying "Ask your troop leader why you're not getting cookies with healthy ingredients in them."
