Lessons learned as a Boy Scout never to be forgotten


Great moments in Scouting in which Scoutmasters teach the youth lessons which will be remembered:

Scout asks the Scoutmaster: “Is that snake poisonous?”

So, Scoutmaster replies “That snake’s not poisonous at all.” Then the boy picks up the snake, which bites him and the boy starts to spasm and foam at the mouth as the other kids look on in horror…

The scout leader says, “But that snake is venomous. Poison is ingested or absorbed, while venom is injected. Let’s get it right next time, boys!”
