Top Tips: Christmas Post

Top Tips: Christmas Post

Get your own back on the Scout movement!

Write out a number of Christmas cards to our brave troops battling the Taliban in Afghanistan's Helmand province, and put them in the Scout Mail box ("15p - We'll deliver ANYWHERE") these fine young men have set up in your local village hall.

What the little twerps don't realise is that they are contractually obliged by the Postal Services Act to deliver these items, personally, to some poor squaddie up to his neck in it somewhere near Musa Qala.

Luckily, all this running around the arse end of the Earth will go some way to developing their wood-whittling and old lady-crossing-the-road skills, sadly lacking in today's Scout movement. Baden-Powell would have been proud.
