Four 10-11 year old girls were selling iced tea and cookies in town today. The iced tea was 25¢ and the cookies were 10¢ each or two for 25¢.

Not so fast, it could just be a clever marketing ploy.[:D]

I wish it could be that way. America has lost its innocence...

Maybe Americans wouldn't be so fat if all food businesses adopted their pricing scheme.

I'm confused, are you saying that 25 cents is a lot of money for tea? How much do you normally pay? What ever happened to kids opening a lemonade stand?

What he is talking about is the cookies for 10 cents and two for 25 cents. Cheaper to buy one at a time.

I think the second cookie is bigger.

Under "strict enforcement of existing laws" they should have been fined for selling without a business license, health code violations and also arrested for tax evasion.

Conspiring to violate liquor laws, an undercover agent from you know who goes up asks for tea with sugar, gets it and makes the arrest. Or waits and lets an entry team make the arrest, see with the sugar in the confiscated tea along with some of the organic compounds sitting in a locker until the time there is a trial (if the defendent is still alive) the sugar would have fermented into a bit of alcohol. Also the cookie pricing scheme was deigned to be unfair to the [b]educationally challenged[/b] and after 8 years of klinton I'm sure we have laws against that.

Are you sure that those cookies are not "special brownies?" Maybe you should call DEA?
