For some, it's the most wonderful time of year. For others? It's that time of year when going into the grocery store is like entering into battle. You hear them before you see them...
"Would you like to buy some Girl Scout cookies?"
You can't make eye contact or you're doomed. Before you know it, you're shoveling over $20 for cookies that you'll eat in one sitting. And Girl Scouts are evolving, y'all. You used to feel safe if you didn't have cash on you - there's no way you could be lured into buying boxes and boxes of those cookie perfections. But now? Now, Girl Scouts use Venmo and take cards! They'll stop at nothing to get us to turn into gluttonous monsters who devour Thin Mints like it's what we were put on this earth to do.
Girl Scouts know exactly what they're doing. They're master marketers, and they know how to get you to fall into their clutches. One Girl Scout took selling cookies to the next level, and turned "Samoa" cookies into Jason "Momoas."
This is Jason Momoa.You may know him from Game of Thrones as the fierce Khal Drogo. You do not want to mess with Khal Drogo.
Or perhaps you're familiar with his role as Aquaman in the DC Extended Universe.He appeared in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Justice League and his own film, Aquaman. Basically, Momoa pretty much only plays the coolest characters.
He's also gorgeous if you weren't already aware.

It's no surprise that the 39-year-old actor began his career as a model.
via: Getty ImagesHe even won Hawaii's "Model of the Year" award in 1999. It was much deserved. (Obviously.)
He's also a family man.
He's also cool with Lenny Kravitz, Zoë's dad, and Bonet's ex-husband.
He's even funny!
Well, one young Girl Scout decided on a new way to market her cookies.Charlotte Holmberg, a "Top Cookie CEO" for Girl Scout, came up with a new cookie...the "Momoas."
Yes, you're seeing that box of cookies correctly.
Momoas > Samoas9News reported that Charlotte's mom actually works in marketing. Charlotte and her mom printed out a bunch of pictures of Momoa and glued them onto the cookie boxes.
Listen, Charlotte knows her audience.
To nobody's surprise, Charlotte's Momoas went viral.
Who would ever eat plain old Samoas again?
Who needs Samoas when you can have Momoas? 💁 https://t.co/7rLS90kmi1— Des Moines Register (@Des Moines Register)1550593800.0
People are dying for Momoas.Usually, Thin Mints are the most talked-about cookie (have you ever tried them frozen? Do it. Now.) but something tells us these Momoas are going to blow the other cookies out of the water.
It's just too perfect of a match.
I just read about a Girl Scout putting pictures of Jason Momoa on boxes of Samoa cookies and calling them Momoas an… https://t.co/HtQRf0fepb— attk (@attk)1550619370.0
She may be young, but Charlotte is out there hustling.
Gotta admire her entrepreneurial hustle. A Girl Scout in Colorado has turned Samoas into "Momoas" with a picture o… https://t.co/XprBAbrGOe— Danielle Knox FOX 35 (@Danielle Knox FOX 35)1550660372.0
People have been making the connection between Jason Momoa and Samoas for awhile.
Talking to my friend about gurl scout cookies and she says “girl I love them Jason Momoas” https://t.co/1CPVIc7hSU— King Girth (@King Girth)1550600941.0
The internet is THIRSTY for some Momoas.Hey! Girl Scout corporation! Are you listening? Give the people what they want!
People cannot stop talking about Momoas.It feels like they're a real thing, even though they totally aren't.
How can we make this happen?
Ha ha ha. The only think that would make this greater is if he showed up and bought some Momoas from her 🤣🤣🤣🤣 https://t.co/A4aR8tZl1s— Paula Puffer (@Paula Puffer)1550419940.0
What would you do if you saw yourself on a box of Girl Scout cookies?
It's definitely attention-grabbing.?," one user commented on Facebook. The Girl Scouts of Colorado Facebook page made sure to update everyone about the situation.
"Thanks to everyone who reached out, asking to support this Colorado Girl Scout!" they wrote.
The anger seems to stem from the fact that the young girl was using someone's image (without their permission) to sell cookies."So [who's] running Jason that check for using his image???" another Facebook user commented.
People had real questions about the boxes."Is it legal to use someone else's image and sell it?" a Facebook user commented.
People took this issue very seriously.
The actor hasn't reacted or released a statement yet himself.
We wonder how Jason Momoa would feel about being a new Girl Scout cookie?
It kind of feels like we're in a Willy Wonka universe.Are the Girl Scout cookie boxes with Jason Momoa on the box the equivalent to a Golden Ticket? Sure feels like it.
Despite the blowback, Charlotte's idea is still getting a lot of love on the internet.
