Congratulations to an entire troop of Cub Scouts, who just earned a merit badge for seeing boobs.

Trust us, kids. It could have been many, many years before you earned that badge otherwise.

Desmond Wheatley is the scout leader for a Cub Scout troop in San Diego. He led a hike through a state park in La Jolla, Calif., on Jan. 24 that took them on a trail straight to a nude beach, KFMB-TV reported.

The boys are nine- and 10-year-olds. So, naturally, their parents were outraged their sons were face-to-face with real-life breasts, buttocks and other naughty parts.

One mother said that when she confronted Wheatley, he told her: "My family and I go through here all the time. It's not a big deal."

The Cub Scouts sided with Desmond, though, and said the hike was "quickly rerouted to protect the youth. ... We concluded proper protocol had been observed."

The real winners here are the scouts.
