so my son tells me the other day that his patrol wants to change their name to "Illuminati".... I'm scratching my head on that one.... where are they getting this stuff from???

Currently they are "Cyber Ducks" but that was not by consensus and the scout pushing that one dropped out.

 

They got it from The Davinci Code.

The Barenaked Ladles.  They actually found a patch with a ladle.

 

They can sing the theme to The Big Bang Theory.  Their patrol yell is BANG!

That is likely the source given the timing, but the story goes back many decades.  https://en.wikipedia...wiki/Illuminati

 

I remember magazine ads when I was a boy warning that the Illuminati were secretly at work in the background - up to no good. People worried over such things are still around.

The reason they call all these organizations secret societies is because they don't what people to know that they exist.... :eek:

The red berets provoke a wide variety of reactions.  I remember that during my time as a Boy Scout, the red beret was introduced as an option, along with the campaign hat and the baseball cap.  (I don't remember whether you could still choose the garrison cap, which had been the only option up to that time.)  Our troop voted for the campaign hat, but within a few years, voted to switch to the baseball cap.  And yet other troops did go for the red beret.  I have seen a couple that still do, even though some effort is involved in obtaining them, since the BSA no longer sells them.

There's a couple dozen of them for sale right now on Ebay. 

 

Between Google and Ebay, there's no longer any reason to come out of your parents basement anymore.

About 2 months after the 2015 BSA rule change on homosexual leaders, our new scout patrol finally got around to naming themselves.

 

I had to stifle a laugh when their patrol leader announced that they would henceforth be "The Flaming Patrol".

Two more.

 

Otherwise blank BSA patrol patch with black stitching forming a 1/4" irregular dot slightly off center.   "The Distant Birds."  Call: mouths open and close with no sound emerging.

 

Solid black patch.  "The Event Horizon"  Call: "Lights Out!"

We had a Rubber Duck patrol - not so weird name actually but the patrol yell was "Rubber Ducky, we're so fine" but the really cool thing was the patrol flag - the patrol had a Scout who was a really good artist and he drew a picture of Ernie driving a chartreuse microbus getting in not just one but two rubber duck references without actually drawing a rubber duck. 

 

 

As for the beret - my unit wore berets - the only ones that didn't like the berets were the new scouts whose parents bought them berets a size or so to big because "they'll grow in to them" and whose berets were not worn in yet.  Everyone with well-fit and worn in berets loved them.  Summer camp was a great place to get them worn in by the way (when you "accidentally" forget to take it off when swimming, or stuffing them in your sleeping bag while sleeping, etc.).  Of all of the BSA's hats, the beret was the most useful - hands down.  A beret could be used as a pot holder, a trivet (something to place a hot pot on), a water carrier (or for that matter a mulberry or raspberry or strawberry or blueberry or etc. carrier), a Frisbee, a kickball base, a bandage to clamp on to a gushing wound, a blindfold (with the aid of a neckerchief to hold it), a capture-the-flag flag - and on and on.  A garrison cap can do a number of those but make horrible Frisbees.  A smoky bear hat can do a number of those but would you really use one for a Frisbee or a base?  A baseball cap - well they're just useless except as a carrier.  Plus - the more abused and worn in they got, the sharper they looked because they could be worn correctly.  In a parade of Scouts, while the smoky bear hats looked sharp, the berets looked equally sharp and as a bonus, seemed to radiate active.

WE have a patrol that just renamed itself the Old Spice scented Leprechauns. I'm not sure the patrol yell yet.
