A Scout Master was teaching his boy scouts about survival in the desert. “What are the three
most important things you should bring with you in case you get lost in the desert?”
he asked. Several hands went up, and many important things were suggested such
as food, matches, etc. Then one little boy in the back eagerly raised his hand.
“Yes Little Johnny, what are the three most important things you would bring with you?”
asked the Scout Master.
Little Johnny replied: “A compass, a canteen of water, and a deck of cards.”
“Why is that Little Johnny?”
“Well,” answered Little Johnny, “the compass is to find the right direction, the
water is to prevent dehydration.”
“And what about the deck of cards?” asked the Scout Master impatiently.
“Well, Sir, as soon as you start playing Solitaire, some dude is bound to come up
behind you and say, ‘Put that red nine on top of that black ten!’ ”
