2005_03_samoa.jpgHipsters, don't feel so bad about being maligned by the old neighborhood residents of Williamsburg for gentrifying the area: It seems that peewee entrepreneurship is also at risk. The NY Post reports that a police captain ticketed a Girl Scout's dad for selling cookies. Hoi Lewis and his 13 year-old daughter, Gracie, were delivering boxes of cookies and collecting money from relatives at 162 Bedford Avenue, when a police captain decided to strongarm the father (Gracie got into the car when they heard the police shouting) and issued a summons for being "observed offering for sale cookies w/o being properly licensed." The Post says that when the family complained, the police commissioner's office sounded shocked as well. Not only is this a crazy story and remind us of our days selling Girl Scout cookies to win a plastic mug, now Gothamist really wants some Girl Scout Samoa cookies. Find out which squads are selling by going to the Girl Scout Council Finder. But for the impatient, here are some Girl Scout Cookie recipes.

And Ben Lerman, whose iPoo shirts we've liked, was busted by the NYPD's art squad for selling his wares in SoHo. Yeah, the NYPD is all about the quality of life, all right.
