A Scoutmaster is walking down the street one day when he notices a very small
boy trying to press a doorbell on a house across the street. However, the boy
is very small and the doorbell is too high for him to reach.
After watching the boy's efforts for some time, the Scoutmaster moves closer to
the boy's position. He steps smartly across the street, walks up behind the
little fellow and, placing his hand kindly on the child's shoulder leans over
and gives the doorbell a ring.
Crouching down to the child's level, the Scoutmaster smiles benevolently and
asks, "And now what, young man?"
To which the boy turns and yells, "NOW WE RUN!"
