By now you should be attuned to American comedian, actor, director, writer, producer, voice artist, and Academy Awards host Chris Rock's Girl Scout Cookie bit at last night's Oscars. If you aren't, here's what you need to know: Chris Rock called upon the legions of mad-rich celebs in the audience to buy hundreds of dollars worth of cookies from his daughter's Girl Scout troop. He teased Leo, John Legend waved around a $100 bill, and Matt Damon made out with a Thin Mint. It was cute and fun, for sure, but also confused us deeply.
Here are some things we're left wondering about:
1. Was this fake?
2. Did these girls really sell $65,243 worth of cookies?
3. At $5 a box, why isn't the final total a multiple of five?
By these numbers it appears they sold 13,048.6 boxes.
4. Thirteen thousand boxes? Really?
Even if people were shelling out $10 a box on average, that's still 1,300 boxes. No way.
5. Was all that money from direct sales or did celebs just end up donating?
If so, does overpaying violate any Girls Scout policies, provided there was any legitimacy to this at all?
