We welcome our newest adult member, the retired Marine Corps drill sergeant turned sensitive therapist, popular from the Geico insurance commercials.
He has a very special heartfelt message just for you.
Man up and go to the Klondike!
Shootin' guns and throwing tomahawks!
Now that's a quality day in America!
ARE YOU LISTENING?
Don't hibernate, rise up and growl.
You da Bears, be powerful champions.
Be dominant carnivores, hungry for victory!
Don't slither away, rise up to fight.
Spread your hood for lightening fast attack.
Your venom will defeat any and all takers!
Don't hide in your cave, emerge into the light.
You're the only ones with wings. Fly high.
Firebuilding? Just breathe on a pile of wood!
Can't see the forest for the trees? Get seen.
Stand tall, be strong. Tower above the rest.
You are the forest, home of Scout adventure.
GO TO THE KLONDIKE
AND DO YOUR BEST!
...then maybe someday you too can become a former Marine Corps drill sergeant turned sensitive therapist just like me.
YOU GOT THAT?
ESCAPE MAMBY PAMBY LAND
GO TO THE KLONDIKE!
Before I throw a box of Kleenex...
