Friday Funny: Stuck in the Desert

Posted on 20 February 2009 by Editor

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!”

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?
