Boy Scout Limericks

Regarding recent headlines about the intent of the Boy Scout’s Jamboree to make condoms readily available (the hilarity of which was somewhat dampened by Snopes), a wise and clever friend of mine noted that the organization’s “be prepared” motto has taken on a rather unexpected connotation! To celebrate this quip, I’ve tried my hand at a few limericks–the perfect, irreverent form for this subject matter–and invite anyone to join me.

Boy Scouts should know how fires are made

And how a fish ought to be filleted

But since the genders were paired

Their motto “Be Prepared”

Chiefly concerns getting laid!

This Boy Scout’s Jamboree

Will go down in infamy

For they’ll find it hard to swallow

How quickly came their motto

“Be prepared” to mean, sexually!
