Sucks to be a boyscout

So when you think about it, the boyscouts really get the fuzzy end of the fund-raising lollipop. Girlscouts sell cookies. Boyscouts sell trashbags and popcorn. Seriously? When was the last time you heard someone say "Oh my god, your son is selling trash bags? Hey, get me thre-- no, NO four boxes. I just love those things so much!" Um, no? Haven't recently heard that?
Actually, the other day when discussing this very topic with a friend, she said... "What? boyscouts sell trashbags?" Case in point. Worst fundraiser ever.
And lets be honest, a six year old girl could sell you anything-- she doesn't need one of the top selling brands of cookies becuase she is so stinking adorable, you aren't gonna say no. But little boys-- much easier to say no to. Little boys selling trashbags??? Yes, they are practical, but who is going to buy four boxes?
Sorry boyscouts. You got the bad end of that deal... better luck next time.
