Villa Rica, GA mayor narrowly avoids electoral DOOM.

Story goes like this:

  • Girl Scout troop sets up a cookie stand in Villa Rica, GA.
  • Cop hassles Girl Scouts for not having permit.
  • Cop brings Girl Scouts to police station.
  • What happened at this point was not explicitly stated in the article, but probably went along these lines: mayor is informed that one of his cops has volunteered the town of Villa Rica to have a blood feud with the Girl Scouts; mayor blanches and has a minor heart attack; mayor screams at cop in question for half an hour and threatens to consume cop’s liver if cop ever does that again.
  • Mayor gets permit for Girl Scouts; takes entire troop to Chuck E. Cheese.
  • Girl Scouts call off blood feud.

OK, that last part is an extrapolation, but a logical one.  Because you.  Do Not. F*ck With. The Girl Scouts.  Or the Boy Scouts, for that matter.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: the Scouts are immune to whatever pressure can normally be brought to bear on an organization, and they automatically win any dispute in which they find themselves.

Period.  End sentence.
