The Boy Scouts Sure Have Changed

I never made it past Webelos in the Cub Scouts, but I can see that the Boy Scouts of America have made changes in their merit badge system to reflect modern, useful skills. There's even one for blogging. (HT: Neatorama)

So, here are a few samples from the new merit badge list. Your task is to match each badge with the blogger that you think best deserves to be noted for a particular accomplishment.

A. Tent Burning

B. Snoring

C. Roadkill Grilling

D. Outhouse Tipping

E. Lawnmower Racing

F. Fart Lighting

G. Disorienteering

H. Cow Tipping. [My brother did this once when he was 16 and we were living in Pittsburgh. Except that in the dim light, he accidentally pushed over a bull. It's a very good thing that he was a track star.]

I. Cat Herding

J. Belching

My son Peace says that Belching is Eagle required.

John said...

Gavin? Come on, Theresa, you go to Chandler where fart lighting is a doctoral program.
