          I agree with Trevorum--it tells Scouts that Scouting is fun, and not just a humorless activity. After all, a Scout is cheerful. I also agree that moderation is the key--don't keep the spoof patches on forever.

            I've got one of those that I wear once in a while. I've had some others given to me as well (potty trained, etc) I don't wear those. Not that I have anything against them in particular it just isn't the message I want to send. Spoof patches are fine but I think adults need to consider their audience when they wear them, what would be appropriate at Wood Badge or a district event is different than what would be ok at a pack or troop event.

              I suppose some methods are more important that others. Since this is an old thread, I'm gonna take the "other side" on this one and see how someone may react to an "Eagle Spoof" consisting of an eagle over a checklist....

                Yes, Scouting should be fun at appropriate times, and serious at appropriate times. Even before being in the military, I always tried to wear my Scout uniform correctly as a youth, including the old knee socks with garters and flashes. Spoof patches are fun and maybe could be worn temporarily in the appropriate surroundings, but not long term.
                To me it's an integrity issue. If you agree to the Scout Oath and Law, then you should be agreeing to wear the uniform of the organization correctly. A scout is trustworthy, loyal, ...obedient. If you don't care about wearing it correctly, then what other parts of the Scouting rules are you willing to regularly ignore?
