A Blooper from “The World’s Best Retailer”

The website for the Girls Scouts of the USA clearly states:

Q: Can I buy Girl Scout Cookies online?

A: Girl Scouts of the USA does not currently allow online sales, but its cookie site GirlScoutCookies.org can help you locate girls selling in your community. Simply visit www.GirlScoutCookies.org

So perhaps one can forgive Amazon.com, “the world’s best retailer“, for not having any in stock. Still, it’s hard to forgive the results they return when you search for girl scout cookies on their site. It’s safe for work, but not for the faint of heart. Via window office.

I hope that Amazon resolves this issue quickly, and perhaps offers an explanation of this unsual relevance ranking result. In any case, I have saved a screen shot for posterity here.
