Have y'all seen this one?
>A Boy Scout Story
>Three Boy Scouts (in uniform) were out fishing in a boat one day, when they
>heard cries for help.
They went around a point only to see another fishing boat capsized and a
man struggling to keep his head above water. Like true Boy Scouts, they
went to his aid and fished the man out.
>Lo and behold, the man turned out to be Bill Clinton. As he toweled
himself off and caught his breath, he thanked the three scouts profusely
and asked if there was anything he could do for each of them.
>"Why, I'd sure like a tour of the White House," the first scout said.
>"No problem," said Bill. "How's next week?"
>"I'd sure love to go for a ride in Air Force One," said the second scout.
>"We'll leave aboard her tonight," Bill replied.
>"For me, I'd like to be buried in Arlington National Cemetery," said the
third scout. "Well, I can sure arrange that," said Bill, "but you're pretty
gosh-darned young to be worrying about that, now aren't you sport?"
>"You don't know my Daddy," the scout replied. "When he finds out I helped
>save your life, he's gonna kill me!"
