A Girl Scout sold over 17,000 of the group’s signature cookies this year, shattering her troop’s old mark and probably setting a national record. But how did she do it, that is the question. Her father Fabio Gunazzenti is a local mafia don and it is thought that his reputation might have had something to do with the incredibly high sales.
A neighbour was interviewed (refusing to give her name) and was quoted as saying, “I saw people, lots of people leaving that house at all hours of the night with lots of boxes of cookies.” “Sometimes they would make two or three trips out to their cars they were taking so many boxes”.
A spokeswoman for the New York-based national organization, called the figure “amazing” but said there’s no national record on the books. “We’re thrilled for the girls who take it to such a great level, but so far, we don’t track it at the national level,” she said.
Now I have heard of the mafia getting it’s hands into a lot of different businesses, but girl guide cookies? Come on, what would Tony Soprano think.
