Reading Chuck B's post reminded me that I didn't send one of my favourites. Like
Chuck mine comes from the deep darkest depths of the memory. Re reading it now
may not seem funny to other but it _always_ brings a smile to my face.
Many, many, moons ago when I was a Scout the troop went on a camp to Honiton,
Devon (UK). We had about 5 patrols and 5 or 6 leaders. On the Sunday at dinner
each patrol had to cook dinner for one of the leaders. Mine (wolves) had Skip.
He was a rather portly chap of about 50 but looked about 80 nearly as round as
he was tall but he commanded absolute respect from all of the Scouts.(I digress)
Sunday dinner that day was roast turkey, corn, peas, spuds and stuffing_.
We had done a pretty good job on dinner and the PL and I (APL) were getting
everthing ready to dish out. Realising that Skip was in the Leaders tent talking
to the other leaders (good at talking was Skip) and we didn't know what he
wanted to be posioned with so we sent the youngest of the patrol to ask. Off he
gallops to the tent and shoves his head inside to ask..... he then backed off a
couple of paces, put his hands to his mouth and yells...
SKIP WANTS STUFFING!
I think the only person not laughing was him. Poor lad! He went on to be a damn
good Queen Scout.
Thats my contribution. Its true! Honest! It just sounds made up.
