Friday Funny: Stuck in the Desert

Posted on 20 February 2009 by admin

Welcome to Friday Funny! Every Friday, Scouting News will share a Scouting related joke with our readers. Hopefully you find it just as funny as we did! This week’s joke was seen over on Scouting Maniac

Akela was teaching his Cub Scouts about survival in the desert.

“What are the three most important things you should bring with you in case you get lost in the desert?” he asked.

Several hands went up, and many important things were suggested such as food, matches, etc. Then one little boy in the back eagerly raised his hand.

“Yes Timmy, what are the three most important things you would bring with you?” asked the Akela.

Timmy replied: “A compass, a canteen of water, and a deck of cards.”

“Why’s that Timmy?”

“Well,” answered Timmy, “the compass is to find the right direction, the water is to prevent dehydration…”

“And what about the deck of cards?” asked the Akela impatiently.

“Well, Sir, as soon as you start playing Solitaire, someone is bound to come up behind you and say, “Put that red nine on top of that black ten!”

Friday Funny: Pinewood Derby Laws

Posted on 06 February 2009 by Dan

Welcome to Friday Funny! Every Friday, Scouting News will share a Scouting related joke with our readers. Hopefully you find it just as funny as we did!

Today’s Friday Funny was overheard on Twitter, John (@JohnShepard) over at JohnScout 2.0 has been getting ready for a Pinewood Derby Race tomorrow. The last couple of days he has shared his thoughts abut preparing for the race in the theme of JohnScout’s Pinewood Derby Laws:

JohnScout’s First Law of the Pinewood Derby:

No matter how early one acquires the BSA Official Pinewood Derby kit blank, we will still be sanding the weekend before the big race.

JohnScout’s Second Law of the Pinewood Derby:

The less Akela touches the Pinewood Derby Kit, the better the Cub Scout does in the big race.

JohnScout’s Third Law of the Pinewood Derby:

Akela will ignore the Second Law of the Pinewood Derby.

What are your Pinewood Derby Laws?

Friday Funny: Scout Oath Coin Fail!

Posted on 23 January 2009 by Dan

Welcome to Friday Funny! Every Friday, Scouting News will share a Scouting related joke with our readers. Hopefully you find it just as funny as we did!

I finally figured out why some Scouts have a problem keeping the Scout Oath and Scout Law straight. I’m sure we have all seen a veteran Scout, possible even at their Eagle Scout Court of Honor stand up to recite the Scout Oath and instead say “A Scout is…” It always causes an awkward pause and then normally solicits some chuckles after the event.

**Breaking News**

Its not their fault! They are victims! I’m sure they were lead astray by the “Oval Scout Oath Coin” being sold by National Supply. See the coins description (see image in case they fix the website)
Scout Oath Coin Description Fail

FinePrint:
1. I understand that it was a mistake in the description.
2. I notified National Supply Group of the mistake.

Friday Funny: Christmas Edition

Posted on 26 December 2008 by Dan

Welcome to Friday Funny! Every Friday, Scouting News will share a Scouting related joke with our readers. Hopefully you find it just as funny as we did!

Sorry this one isn’t Scouting related, but it is Christmas related.

Rudolph and his wife, Hilga, were shopping in downtown Moscow one day. It started to snow, and Hilga delightedly said, “Oh Rudolph dear, we are going to have a white Christmas!”

Rudolph sternly replied, “It is NOT snowing, it is raining, dear!”

Hilga said, “Can’t you see the snowflakes? It is obviously snowing, dear!”

“No, Hilga dear, it is raining!”, replied Rudolph, somewhat annoyed.

“I am am sorry to disagree with you, dear, but it is snowing, Rudolph.” said Hilga.

In exasperation, Rudolph replied, “Listen, Hilga! Rudolph the Red knows rain, dear!”

Friday Funny: I Followed the Tracks!

Posted on 19 December 2008 by Dan

Welcome to Friday Funny! Every Friday, Scouting News will share a Scouting related joke with our readers. Hopefully you find it just as funny as we did!

An Eagle Scout, a Star Scout, and a Tenderfoot Scout get lost in the woods. The Eagle Scout tells the other two that they should make camp while he finds them something they can cook up for dinner.

About 30 minutes later the Eagle Scout comes back to their base camp dragging a small deer. The other two Scouts are in awe and wanted to know how he found it. The Eagle Scout said, “It was easy, I found some tracks and followed them.”

The next morning, the Star Scout decides to go find them breakfast. He takes off into the woods, finds some tracks and shows back up at their base camp dragging a rabbit. The Tenderfoot Scout is in awe and wanted to know how he found it. The Star Scout said, “It was easy, I found some tracks and followed them.”

That afternoon, it’s the Tenderfoot Scouts turn to go find dinner. He takes off into the woods, two hours latter he comes hobbling back to camp with a broken leg, bruises all over his body, and scratches on his arms.

The Eagle and Star Scout ask “What Happened?”

The Tenderfoot Scout replies, “Just like you said, I found some tracks and followed them, then I got hit by a train.”

Friday Funny: Be Prepared!

Posted on 12 December 2008 by Dan

Yesterday, Jerry over at The Scoutmaster Minute reminded us of the importance of Laughter! With that I would like to announce a new feature of Scouting News, the Friday Funny. Every Friday we will share a Scouting related joke with our readers.

A scoutmaster and his wife were driving along a rural highway when they found the road blocked by a herd of cows that had escaped through a broken fence. The scoutmaster tried beeping his horn to scare the cattle from the pavement, but to no avail. For some reason, no sound was heard. He got out of the car, lifted the hood, and saw the problem, a loose wire, which he quickly fixed.

As he got back into the car, his wife asked him if he’d had any luck. “Yep,” he replied, “beep repaired!”
