    Maybe he should try rounding a few kids up, no?

    Look on the bright side; those kids were probably the screamers, which means the world is now a little bit better.

    Round up to whole numbers? I guess the bear only got part of one of the kids.

    You’re making them do math, Scotty! I suck at math! I’d be fussy too!

    The parents weren’t too upset until they found out that Scotty the Scout Leader rounded up from 17.

    Scoutmaster Ward would never have been so negligent.

    Sorry Scotty. You can only round up if you lose half a kid.

    Bankers math. What do you suppose they do with the fractional portions? Could you, like, put them all into a separate account and end up with a couple million kids after a while?

    Scotty, the Completely Innocent Scout Leader, is quite right. Parents tend these days to be way too fussy. Chances are, those three missing scouts will turn up on their own in due course. Unfortunately….

    It gets pretty messy when you have to deal with fractional kids.

    Come on. As a former boy scout who was charged with teaching some wee snots I can absolutely agree that losing a few in the woods would only improve the species.

    Make sure you lose the right ones, though.
