Murphy's Scouts Laws; or are they Mr. Leonard's???

Murphy's Scouts Laws

  • the child with the fewest clean clothes will invariably be the first to get wet
  • The easier the rules of the game the fewer will want to play
  • If it can be lost, at some point it will be. This goes for hats, shoes, cups, tents, and the occasional kid
  • The leader everyone is depending on will always be the last to arrive at the meeting
  • The attention span of the group is inversely proportional to the importance of what is being taught
  • The higher the climbable object, the sooner someone will be dared to climb it
  • If you pack extra food, no one will be hungry. If you pack just enough they will be ravenous
  • The cleaner the uniform the more attractive it is to mustard/paint/mud/etc.
  • The more hours of sleep the leaders need, the earlier the kids will wake up
  • Whoever put their hand up first knows the least about it
    These ten laws were sent by
