I'm Really No Better Than The Illegal Mexicans...or Look For Me On Youtube.

How did it happen?
I have no idea.
Being distracted?
That’s my guess.
Trying to multi-task?
I should have known better, being a man.
It all started when I was asked to MC the Cub Scouts Blue & Gold Ceremony.
I’ve been a Scout leader for 5 years now.
I’m a veteran of the US Navy.
I work for the Federal Government.
My mom was even born on the FOURTH OF FREAKING JULY!
Patriotism is in my BLOOD, people!
So what went wrong?
I did the Welcome…
The Announcements…
 Lead them in the Pledge of Allegiance…
Had the minister say grace…..
Then I began dismissing them by group, to go get their food at the buffet tables, before we started the Awards portion of the program.
Only to have my wife….come up to me….and say, “Hey you big dork. You realize you were facing and saluting the wrong flag during the pledge, don’t you?”
FML
I, a Scout Leader in UNIFORM, lead the Scouts and their families, a crowd of approximately 100 people, in the Pledge of Allegiance TO, AND while SALUTING, the wrong flag.
FAIL
Thank God no one filmed it.
I think.

Which was on the complete opposite side of the stage from Old Glory.

Did you accidentally salute the Jolly Roger? Because that makes sense, knowing you. Or some commmie flag that would get you excommunicated from Uncle Sam? Is community service involved? :)

It's easy to confuse the RED, WHITE and BLUE for the Cup Scout's flag. Blind people do it all the time.

Well geez. I can't believe your wife didn't film that! *sigh*

Momma Fargo said...

Still funny! Perhaps you could blame it on dementia? Nah...just own it. It's still makes me laugh.

Pat said...

Does this mean you will be striped of some badges or something? And what flag, exactly were you facing? What are you trying to top Christina Aguilera?

How could you? HOW COULD YOU?

Well, it makes for a hilarious story, at least.

Um, oops!

What flag did you salute then?

Krissy said...

I can't believe the wife didn't at least snap a picture of that! You realize they all think you are a communist now. :)

I suspected you were a Commie what with the red background and all...

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Except you will burn in hell, Commie!!!

Matty said...

At least you can laugh at yourself. Heaven knows the goofs and gaffes I've pulled. Chalk it up to being human.

Was it the Rainbow flag?

I knew it.
