I like milk and cookies. Everyone likes milk and cookies. But now we know it’s possible to like them TOO much.
A 43-year-old guy named Robert Smith from Lakeland, Florida carjacked a woman at a gas station last week. He told her, quote, “Have [an effing] good day” . . . and then he sped off at 100 miles an hour.
His first stop was another gas station, where he stole a bunch of milk and cookies. His next stop? Another gas station, to steal more milk and cookies. And after that, he kept hitting gas stations . . . but ONLY taking milk and cookies.
The cops eventually caught up to him, and he admitted to carjacking the woman and stealing all the milk and cookies. But it’s not clear if he ever ate or drank any of them.
He’s only been charged with carjacking so far.

The “Cake Cleanse” Diet
I’m pretty sure you can’t lose weight gorging on cake and cookies all day long. But it sure would be cool if this was true . . .
40-year-old Deborah Schipper of Sydney, Australia just published a book about a new diet she invented called the ‘Cake Cleanse.’ The big hook is that you get to eat three DESSERTS a day . . . WHILE you lose weight.
It’s because the desserts are made with strategically healthier recipes. That means you’ll be baking cakes and cookies with ingredients like almond milk, coconut flour, and Greek yogurt.
Deborah says she came up with the diet since she couldn’t lose weight. Quote, “because I love sweets and I knew I could never give them up.”
The Cake Cleanse is a four-week program, and it’s pretty expensive. The nutrition plan and the recipe e-books cost a total of $55.
But if you want to lose weight and you really believe it’s possible to make that happen eating three desserts a day, you can buy it at CakeCleanse.com.
56-year-old Lee Wright and her 52-year-old sister Leslie Roy were visiting family up in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula back on April 11th . . . and as they were driving home through a remote area, their SUV got stuck in some deep snow.
They were stuck . . . and they were SCREWED. There was no cell phone coverage, their car was almost out of gas, and the road was SO remote that no other cars were driving by.
So they went into survival mode. They put on all the clothes they had . . . they used the snow for water . . . and they rationed the GIRL SCOUT COOKIES they happened to have with them to try to stay alive.
Eventually their family reported them missing . . . and a police helicopter finally spotted their car on Friday . . . after they’d been stranded for TWO WEEKS.
Lee and Leslie were both in shockingly good health, all things considered . . . the medical report just says they were, quote, “a little weak.”
I saw a headline today that said, “Girl Scouts Add Three New Cookies to Iconic Lineup” . . . and obviously I was thrilled. “So long, New Year’s resolution . . . the Girl Scouts want to fatten me up and I’m gonna let ’em!”
Then I saw what the new flavors are . . . and frankly my diet will be just fine.
Two of the new flavors are gluten free, so, yeah . . . PASS. And the third is filled with ingredients that sound “healthy” enough to make the cookies taste bad, but not healthy enough to actually make cookies a sensible part of a good diet.
The three flavors are:
1. Gluten-Free Trios. These are gluten-free peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies made from whole grain oats.
2. Gluten-Free Toffee-tastic. These are butter cookies with little toffee bits.
3. Rah-Rah Raisins. These are basically oatmeal raisin cookies with a bad-sounding twist. They’re made with whole grain oats, raisins, and Greek yogurt-flavored chunks.
But the three flavors won’t be available everywhere . . . the Girl Scouts are rolling them out in test markets this year.
Do you like Girl Scout Cookies, but hate seeing the smile on a young girl’s face when you buy a box from her? Your day has arrived.
The Girl Scouts announced yesterday that they’ll be selling their cookies online for the first time ever this year.
They released a statement saying they resisted selling online because face-to-face sales were a good learning experience for girls . . . but they realized they were leaving a ton of money on the table.
No, wait . . . that’s not the reason they gave. They say they’re selling online because, quote, “[This] will also allow customers to help girls learn 21st-century skills grounded in technology.”
It looks like each local Girl Scouts region will handle the sales and distribution in their area, so your money will still go to your local Girl Scouts.
The cookies are set to go on sale on the 12th at GirlScouts.org.
