The Boy Scout Curse Continues

It’s not a good time to be a Boy Scout, is it?

God has apparently developed a recent hate-on for the Boy Scouts in particular and declared it Open Season on anyone wearing a green ascot and who may, or may not, be assisting old ladies across the street. In fact, I’d say that it’s much safer these days to be a crash test dummy than it is to be a member of the fucking Boy Scouts.

Just days after four men were electrocuted at the National Jamboree in Virginia, tragedy has fallen yet again befallen the Boy Scouts when another Scout Leader was killed by a bolt of lightning and a 13-year-old boy left brain dead (which is no major tragedy in itself considering the average intelligence levels displayed by other current Boy Scout members) after taking shelter from a storm in Sequoia National Park.

Doesn’t the all-haloed ‘Official Boy Scout Handbook’ advise against seeking shelter under trees during these kinds of storms? I thought that also was elementary. But I digress…

Who qualifies these Scout "leaders" exactly?

After this summer, if I were a Boy Scout I’d be turning in my merit badges immediately and running faster than Linford Christie with a firecracker up his ass to join something safer, like a Quitting Bee or something.


  • That's what they get for selling popcorn for $20! You never hear about girl scouts doing stupid stuff...they sell their cookies and earn their badges...and no one gets lost, hurt, struck by lightening, etc.
