Boy Scout Taps

There was a time when I thought a lot about Boy Scouts. I was regularly coming up with scouting jokes that I hoped the New Era would publish. An if that magazine wouldn't print them, I could always post them onto this website. Out of this little practice came an almost unhealthy obsession to see a pinewood derby gag published in the New Era--which was finally realized in March, 2011.

Needless to say, this blog has seen a lot of Boy Scout gags published over the years. Today, you are looking at likely* the last scouting joke ever to be featured on the Ward Cartoonist website. So, please, if you've got one, put your bugle to your lips and play a rendition of taps.**

*There are still two scouting gags I sold to the New Era years ago. I suppose there's a chance that magazine could publish one or both of them before the end of the year (although I doubt it).

**Given the somberness that should exist for such an event, a kazoo would work too.

The Book of Mormons

Today's strip will always hold a special place in my heart because it was this strip that got a Facebook mention by Donny Osmond himself!

In all sincerity, that is one of the coolest things that has happened over the course of this blog.

Missionary Visions

I had this particularly dream all the time as a missionary. In fact, one time it felt so real that I was in a funk for most of a week worrying about how I was going to  get my grade point average up when I went back to school.

Today's gag comes from the fertile mind of faithful reader Elder V.

I Can See Clearly Now

I tell my kids that I went bald for the same reason.

Melchizedek Priesthood Interview

Believe me, if this were an actual requirement to receive the Melchizedek Priesthood, I'd still be a Priest. Thank heavens for spell checkers, my life as a complete non-speller is so much easier now that most communication takes place on a computer.

Thanks to the good folks at Cedar Fort, I'm very excited to announce my latest publication: Scripture Power Activity Book is 60 pages of puzzles covering the Bible, Book of Mormon, and the Doctrine and Covenants and Church history. It is a lot of fun and at $6.99, it's not going to break the bank. The official release date is Tuesday, September 10, but you can preorder now.

Poor Elder Blank. It is only a matter of time.

Conference Recap

Today's comic comes when giving the speaker too much latitude on a speaking assignment comes back to bite the bishopric. Although, I will say this: I'm sure this is a talk that won't soon be forgotten. Today's gag comes from faithful reader Cindy M. who claims to have done this very thing--I'm guessing to get out of future speaking invitations.
