It's a question that comes up often this time of year. What wines and beers should I pair with girl scout cookies?
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
interviewed experts to find the answer. Basically, you want sweet wines and beers, but they offer some more specific recommendations. For instance:

Police have ruled out any kind of artichoke-themed terrorism, theorizing instead that fertilizers on the vegetable may have caused an explosive chemical reaction.
