What is more delicious than a bass?

Could it be whipped cream? Recently celebrated the ?? aniversary of my 21st birthday and it happened to coincide with a scout pack meeting. My lovely bride, unbeknownst to me, alerted the other leaders to this.

For the closing ceremony, the other leaders had the scouts line up, oldest to youngest to form a tunnel that I had to pass through, while they sang happy birthday to me.

At the end of the tunnel was my youngest son and a pie pan full of whipped cream.

Pie deflectors appear to have been at 30% power.

It's a delicious trap.

To pie you is to love, never forget that. Nobody pies someone they dislike. . . unless the pie has habanero sauce and chopped walnut shells in it.

Congratulations! I set up a pie in the face booth for a fundraiser at a local fair and after a lot of research found that nonmenthol shaving cream works best for repeated uses and that it's hard to find volunteers to be targets.

thanks. I was dumb enough to say yes everytime they asked me to volunteer. Pinewood Derby chief, to Asst. Cubmaster, to you guessed it, Cubmaster. Took five years to get me to this point. Got 4 more years at least,as my youngest son is a Tiger this year.

Whipped cream pie-throwing is a fine art. It's good your son is practicing his skills at an early age.

Did you ask for some chocolate syrup to go with the whipped cream?

His spy video watch, (he won't leave home without it), and his combo analog/digital watch to help him learn to tell time in a non digital format.

Luckily you cannot see the one on my ankle in any of the shots....
