girl scout cookies kill things

Okay, everyone loves girl scout cookies, right? Nothing "nova" about them, right? I just finished off the three boxes I ordered back in February. Good stuff. Those Do-Si-Dos are amazing.
But wait! I may just have helped kill an orangutan. Crap!

Two middle school girl scout students "were doing research to earn a Girl Scout Bronze Award when they discovered the habitat of orangutans in Indonesia is being threatened by the production of palm oil." Palm oil is a central ingredient of the group's cookies. Since their research the two Michigan girls have stopped selling cookies and sold magazines instead. (fox news)

Who wants magazines. I want cookies. Girl scouts of america cookie manufacturers please heed this advice: find a new ingredient so I can enjoy your tasty, tasty cookies again next spring.
