Maybe the Girl Scouts should adopt a pay-as-you-go policy when selling cookies.

    1. C'mon — what's not to like?

      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

The Girls Scouts are pursuing 12 court claims in Akron, Ohio, for uncollected cookie money ranging from $54 to $3,500. The claims total $9,000.

The Scouts say the deadbeats, all adults, picked up cookies and signed for them.

One alleged deadbeat says most of the $3,500 debt involves cookies she gave to others to sell. She agreed to pay the debt in $100 monthly installments.

The other alleged deadbeats could face judgments or have their wages seized.
