Scouts find new IT badge sponsor
Dib, dib, dib; dob, dob, dob
Kids portal - kzuk.net - is to sponsor the Computer Badge for 120,000 cub scouts in Britain.
Boys and girls between eight and 101/2 will have to display basic computer know-how to receive their triangular badge, which then can be worn with pride on their arms.
Of course, a computer badge is a far cry from the rugged outdoor-type awards that could be earned in years gone by. You know, rubbing two sticks together, singing songs around the campfire, keeping your woggle warm, jumpers for goal posts...
kzuk.net was in the news earlier this summer when fast food chain, Burger King, pulled a promotion handing out a million CDs containing kzuk.net software over fears that it gave children access to pornography.
kzuk.net said the whole thing was blown out of all proportion. ®
