I spent the morning planning on telling you about how Teresa MacPherson tried to steal Larry away from me and then how much fun last night's camp with the troop was... but I just learned the most horrifying thing!
I was grabbing me a Twinkie, which I really wanted! but the box has been on our shelf for months! Well, it felt soft, I mean, Twinkies don't actually have a shelf-life, right? Everybody knows that! But I mean... gross! But it wasn't hard so I unwrapped it and tossed it to Butch.
BUTCH IS DANGEROUS! I watched him! He wolfed down that Twinkie like his life depended on it and then his eyes got HUGE and he started to hack or cough or maybe it sounded like he was gonna hurl a lung or something but he started to shiver and then he LOOKED AT ME! I mean you know, dogs look at you but he LOOKED AT ME like Tony Becker I mean ICK like he wanted to kiss me or eat me or SOMETHING.
Yes I screamed! and I ran for my room and slammed the door and moved my bed in front of it. Then I called Darcy and told her to warn the troop that the Twinkies were doing something to the dogs and she she didn't believe me and suddenly she screamed and the phone went dead and
BUTCH IS OUTSIDE MY WINDOW! I'm calling our troop leader now!
- Our timeline is present-day Earth.
- A young Girl Scout just discovered that eating Twinkies turns people into zombies.
- We're in a 15,000ish midwest city.
- The entire troop (
assuming Darcy hasn't been eatenYes, Darcy becomes a zombie, it's not just dogs....) is available to help, but the adult leaders initially don't believe them.
- The world is doomed if we can't get some adults with authority to realize the problem (mayor, city council, etc.).
Question: Other than waiting long enough for zombies to start walking the streets, what can the girl scout troop do to prove to their city leaders that twinkies are turning people (and dogs) into zombies?
Answers will be graded on the following:
How "teenager" the response is. Take off those adult glasses and remember what the world was like when you were 13.
How well you encorporate the policies, procedures, and culture of the Girl Scouts.
How plausible the response will be received by City management.
low the probable body countfast your solution could be implemented.
Attention VTCers! Questions about the "effects of events or world elements, including biology, technology and magic, on specific aspects of that world's societies, cultures, and environment" are on-topic. The existence of my narrative (considering 90%+ of all questions are for the purpose of furthing a story) does not automatically make the question "too story based."
What's funny is that there is no story. I created this entire question ad hoc because the idea of Girl Scouts trying to stop the Zombie Apocalypse tickled my fancy.
