The basic goal of selling Girl Scout cookies might be to move as many boxes as possible, but apparently, the secondary goal is to learn how to deal with people and appreciate the value of hard work. Ordinarily, those first and secondary goals go hand-in-hand, but thanks to the magic of the Internet and a friendship with reality star Honey Boo Boo, one girl in Georgia was moving an insane number of boxes without ever leaving her house.

According to TMZ, the unidentified Girl Scout, a BFF of Honey Boo Boo, convinced the reality star and her family to set up a Facebook page to help move the cookies. It quickly attracted more than seven hundred thousand likes and was doing serious business when the powers that be decided to step in and shut down the operation.

Apparently, selling cookies online was banned by the organization some time ago. A certain percentage of girls probably get away with the practice, but once Honey Boo Boo got involved, it was only a matter of time before the big ugly axe came down on the operation. Fortunately for the troop, all the sales already made will still count, meaning these little girls will likely be able to go on as many special little excursions as they want.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to dive into my own box of Girl Scout cookies that I bought yesterday via the old fashioned way---outside a Panera Bread from an energetic nine-year-old.
