Why was the turkey the drummer in the band?

Because he had drumsticks!

Why did the Pilgrims want to sail to America in the spring?

Because April showers bring mayflowers!

What key has legs and can't open doors?


If April showers bring Mayflowers what do Mayflowers bring?                 Pilgrims!


The Stamp Collector

Connecticut Rivers Council

Billy, a nine year old, took up the hobby of collecting stamps. He was very enthusiastic about it until one day his neighbor’s kid saw his impressive collection and took up the hobby.

Billy complained to his Dad: "I don't want to collect stamps anymore! Andy has every stamp that I have!"

"Don't be stupid, son", his dad said. "Don't you know that imitation is the best form of philately."

Southern NJ Council

Cub enters Singing – “Soap.. . soap. . soap”

Baltimore Area Council

1st Cub:      I was going to get you a pocket calculator for your birthday.

2nd Cub:    How thoughtful of you.

1st Cub:     But I changed my mind. I thought you already knew how many pockets you had.

Stick Stunt

Southern NJ Council

Boy:            (Comes on stage with stick in his hand.  He puts the point of the stick down on the floor, picks it up, puts it down in another place.)

Ketchup to me if you can

Knock, knock

Who’s there’?


Thistle, who?

Thistle, be the last Knock, knock joke.


If Dr. Seuss Were In Technical Writing...

Connecticut Rivers Council

Try saying this aloud to those at your Pack Meeting –

Here's an easy game to play. 

Here's an easy thing to say:

If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port, And the bus is interrupted as a very last resort, And the address of the memory makes your floppy disk abort, Then the socket packet pocket has an error to report!

If your cursor finds a menu item followed by a dash,

And the double-clicking icon puts your window in the trash, And your data is corrupted 'cause the index doesn't hash, Then your situation's hopeless, and your system's gonna crash!

You can't say this? What a shame sir! We'll find you Another game sir.

If the label on the cable on the table at your house,

Says the network is connected to the button on your mouse, But your packets want to tunnel on another protocol,

That's repeatedly rejected by the printer down the hall,

And your screen is all distorted by the side effects of gauss, So your icons in the window are as wavy as a souse,

Then you may as well reboot and go out with a bang, 'Cause as sure as I'm a poet, the sucker's gonna hang!

When the copy of your floppy's getting sloppy on the disk, And the microcode instructions cause unnecessary risk, Then you have to flash your memory and you'll want to RAM your ROM. Quickly turn off the computer and be sure to tell your mom!!
