This month, tens of thousands of be-sashed young men gathered in Glen Jean, WV to participate in this year’s National Boy Scout Jamboree—an annual celebration of tying knots, starting fires, and, yup, badges, badges, badges!!
This year’s jamboree was no ordinary hootenanny, though. In fact, unlike years past, this scout get-together featured a very, very special event—The sort of thing that’s likely to stick in the hearts and minds of the young men who were there to witness it for years to come.
I’m talking, of course, about some MFing dreidles!! Over 800 of them, twirling in unison in a record setting spin-off, sponsored by the National Jewish Committee on Scouting, which is a thing that exists.
“Congratulations to all the Scouts who came together to break the world dreidel spinning record,” National Jewish Committee on Scouting Chairman Bruce Chudacoff said in a statement marking the Guinness record-setting event. “We look forward to continuing to challenge our brothers and sisters in Israel to more and more competitions like this, which will bring us closer together”
And that, my friends, is the only newsworthy thing that happened at this year’s Jamboree. The end.
