    Girl Scout sells 17,328 boxes of cookies

    Wow! A Girl Scout in Michigan sold 17,328 boxes of cookies!!!

    DETROIT - A Girl Scout sold 17,328 of the group's signature cookies this year by setting up shop on a street corner, shattering her troop's old mark and probably setting a national record.

    Jennifer Sharpe, a 15-year-old from Dearborn, plans to travel to Europe with her troop with the proceeds from her feat. "It's always been one of those goals I wanted to accomplish," Sharpe said Wednesday.

    The two bakeries that make the cookies said Sharpe sold more than anyone this year, according to Dianne Thomas, spokeswoman for the Girl Scouts of Metro Detroit.

    Michelle Tompkins, spokeswoman for the New York-based national organization, called the figure "amazing" but said there's no national record on the books. --cbc.ca
    Wow, again. Too bad they don't keep national records. I wonder if she could get into the Guiness Book of World Records.

    Kudos galore to Jennifer Sharpe!
    Why is everyone who drives slower than me an idiot, and everyone who drives faster a maniac?

    Wowza yowza, that's a lot!

    Well, I gotta give my full props to her! I was a Girl Scout once (from six-years-old to eleven), and I remember what it was like selling those cookies. It was hard!

    But mostly because I kept eating them before I could sell them. :P

    Whoa!
    That's an awful lot of cookies...
    My hat's off to her - she sounds like she might have a lucrative career in Sales or Marketing.
