Did we mention Honey Boo Boo isn't even a Girl Scout?

(Newser) – Honey Boo Boo is in hot water with the Girl Scouts ... even though she's not a Girl Scout. The tiny reality star started hawking Girl Scout cookies—on behalf of a friend who actually is a scout—on her Facebook page, until the organization shut the whole thing down, TMZ reports. You see, much to the consternation of many a Thin Mint addict, Girl Scout cookies aren't allowed to be sold online because the whole point is to teach scouts people skills, among other lessons.

It's a bummer not just for cookie fans but for Honey Boo Boo fans, because the treats came complete with autographed boxes, signed photos, and "extremely detailed Facebook updates about how the shipping process was sporadically affected by the health problems experienced by the family’s patriarch, 'Sugarbear,'" Vanity Fair reports. Silver lining: The troop will get credit for the sales Honey Boo Boo (real name Alana Thompson) already made. Her mother, known as Mama June, previously told TMZ they had sold more than 400 boxes.
