Just don't show up at my door, Wal-Mart!

A woman whose daughter is a Girl Scout is claiming that Wal-Mart is introducing a new line of cookies that are direct knock offs of the Thin Mints and Tagalongs that are the most popular of the Girl Scout cookies. This article talks more about it. Brand knockoffs are one thing, and the original itself still generally exists (take Oreo and Hydrox, or generic store brands of everything) but going after Girl Scouts? If this is in fact true, Wal-Mart, it's also in fact lame. Furthermore if you start having in-store Pinewood Derbys, we'll know what you really think of the organizations for the children of America.
