How About A Coolness Merit Badge?

In an effort to halt sliding enrollment, the Girl Scouts are making big changes in an attempt to appear cooler. Merit badges are out, blogs are in. Roasting hot dogs on a campfire and cutting down branches to stoke it are out, healthy eating and the environment are in. What next, send out Tweets to promote Thin Mint sales? Bag the cookies altogether and start selling web site hosting? The next thing you know they’ll be sitting around the computer screen roasting virtual S’mores while reading scary blog entries to each other and listening to Kumbaya on their iPods. On the plus side, they won’t have to sleep on the hard ground, get poison ivy while going to the bathroom in the middle of the night, and Mom won’t get another Popsicle stick bread basket for her birthday.
