Thank you Fred


1. Two vultures board an airplane, each carrying two dead raccoons.  The stewardess looks at them and says, "I'm sorry, gentlemen, only one carrion allowed per passenger."

2.  Did you hear that NASA recently put a bunch of Holsteins into low earth orbit?  They called it the herd shot 'round the world. 

3.  Two boll weevils grew up in South Carolina.  One went to Hollywood and became a famous actor.  The other stayed behind in the cotton fields and never amounted to much.  The second one, naturally, became known as the lesser of two weevils.

4.  Two Eskimos sitting in a kayak were chilly, but when they lit a fire in the craft, it sank proving once again that you can't have your kayak and heat it, too.

5.  A three legged dog walks into a saloon in the Old West.  He slides up to the bar and announces: "I'm looking for the man who shot my paw."

6.  Did you hear about the Buddhist who refused Novocain during a root canal?  He wanted to transcend dental medication. 

7.  A group of chess enthusiasts checked into a hotel and were standing in the lobby discussing their recent tournament victories.  After about an hour, the manager came out of the office and asked them to disperse.   "But why?" they asked, as they moved off.  "Because," he said, "I can't stand chess nuts boasting in an open foyer."

8.  A woman has twins, and gives them up for adoption.  One of them goes to a family in Egypt and is named "Amal."  The other goes to a family in Spain; they name him "Juan."  Years later, Juan sends a picture of himself to his birth mother.  Upon receiving the picture, she tells her husband that she wishes she also had a picture of Amal.  Her husband responds, "They're twins!  If you've seen Juan, you've seen Amal."

9.  These friars were behind on their belfry payments, so they opened up a small florist shop to raise funds.  Since everyone liked to buy flowers from the men of God, a rival florist across town thought the competition was unfair.  He asked the good fathers to close down, but they would not.  He went back and begged the friars to close.  They ignored him.  So, the rival florist hired Hugh MacTaggart, the roughest and most vicious thug in town to "persuade" them to close.  Hugh beat up the friars and trashed their store, saying he'd be back if they didn't close up shop.  Terrified, they did so, thereby proving that: Hugh, and only Hugh, can prevent florist friars.

10.  And finally, there was a man who sent ten different puns to friends, in the hope that at least one of the puns would make them laugh.  Unfortunately, no pun in ten did.


Harvest Celebration
Simon Kenton Council


Boys are standing around talking.  They can be attired in Colonial costumes.

1st Boy: We sure had a great time at the Harvest Celebration.  When my Dad said we would have a big party I didn't know it would last for 3 days.

2nd Boy :Yea!  We invited 92 Indians, plus all our families.  We helped our Moms cook for days.  It was fun to play games, have shooting contests and relays during the celebration.

3rd Boy: I liked the food we cooked, boiled eel, lobster, roasted pigeon, stuffed cod, journey cakes, corn meal bread with nuts and succotash.

4th Boy: The Indians brought food too, turkeys, pumpkins, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce.  And, they brought deer meat, too.

5th Boy:  I liked the popcorn the best...I never ate popcorn before.   I heard my Dad say Governor Bradford has decided to have a celebration again next year, in 1622.  He wants to call it Thanksgiving Celebration!
