The Answer Is....

I have a slightly fuzzy recollection of sitting at a Girls Camp Planning (or maybe it was certification) meeting. I was probably 13 or 14 yrs old. While we were waiting for the meeting to start one of the Stake Priesthood Leaders (a big burly mountainman sort of guy) went to the chalkboard and wrote this:

MR BARS
MR NOT BARS
OSMR
CM CLAWS
NDEDBD IS
OICM
MR BARS

He challenged us to figure it out. I couldn't. But I've never forgotten it. You see, my brain is pretty much full of useless information. Yes, that's me, a font of useless information. ...where were we? Oh, yah, so although this riddle may not have anything at all to do with actually attending girls camp I've always associated it with girls camp in my cluttered brain.

What's the answer you say?
Well you have to say it in your best mountain man voice:

MR BARS = Them are bears ("bars")
MR NOT BARS = Them are not bars.
OSMR = Oh, yes them are!
CM CLAWS = See them claws?
NDEDBD IS = And the itty bitty eyes?
OICM = Oh, I see 'em!
MR BARS = Them are bars!

Okay, so for those of you who spent a lot of time on this one, I'm sorry. Pretty corny, huh? But those are the sort of things that stick in my head. It's a curse.

Thank.You.

I knew that not going to girls camp was going to bite me in the ass one day.

Clearly I need to be called to Young Women's STAT.

Bummer that I joined the church at 22 - and missed out on this stuff...
