Because you find a show offensive does not make it correct. The thing
I have found about scouting and I have been in it 15 years now is
people take it way to serious.....its meant to be fun ....simple as
that. The Cub Scout pack I am cubmaster of has grown in the past 5
yeras to double its size when I took over, why, because I have put
the fun back into it. The last person who had it was by the book
strict, strict, strict, pack meetings were boring because of this. I
have lighten it up and require all my leaders to have a sense of
humor, if they don't they are not asked back.
