What Would Happen If You Got Lost In The Woods?

This is What Would Happen If, a close examination of mundane hypothetical situations. Each week, we look at something that you could do but probably never would, and take it to its logical endpoint. This week: What would happen if you lost your way in the forest?

It’s an incredible Saturday afternoon. You find yourself on a trail, a canopy of leafy trees doing their best to soften the intensely refreshing blue skies. A peaceful cacophony of chirping birds, rustling leaves and a burbling stream fills your ears.

Please send me, as a comment to this page, any old material you have for inclusion in The Daily Joke Alert - to help enable us all to have our fancy tickled regularly! Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
