At our back to basics Camporee this weekend I was treated to a couple
of old skits I hadn't seen in many years.
The Enlarging Machine
This was the best. Two scouts hold up a blanket with a person behind with a
large log, large rock, and many gallons of water. The crowd is never to see th
e setup of the person behind. THe leader says he ahs invented an enlarging
machine and wants people to come up and try it out. The 1st volunteer is told
to throw over the blanket a small twig (out comes the log -- wow amazing).
A 2nd vol. os told to throw over a small pebble (out comes the large rock --
wow again [btw be careful where you throw.] ) A 3rd vol (previously setup)
is asked to spit over the top of the blanket (the blanket falls and the vol.
is drenched). Variation -- drench the leader. Just don't get anyone wet
without asking first.
Ugliest man in the world.
Three guys are talking and the leader says "Look there is the UGLIEST man
in the world. He is so ugly he keeps his face covered." [ All look and point
at a boy or man with a bag over his head].
1st guy says "I don't believe he is the ugliest man in the world." The he
goes over and looks under the bag and promptly dies (screaming helps).
2nd guy also looks and dies or faints.
Leader says "I didn't think he was ugly enough to kill my friends. I'd better
check into this." So he looks and the "ugly man" promptly dies screaming.
Bonus skit -- Got this one from my Girl Scout Cadet daughter who ran a
Campfire for Brownies at their district event this last weekend.
The trained catapillar
4or5 girls bend over at the waist and hold on to the one in front. All are
covered with a green blanket. Leader says "Hey everyone, this is my trained
caterpillar, Hermy. Hermy can do tricks. Want to see some?" (Brownies
scream here <--) "Hermy raise your right legs." (hermy does and all clap)
Next do left leg up, all hop, etc....
Finally the leader says "For Hermy's best trick we need a volunteer." [For
some reason, my daughter tells me the entire group of Brownies began chanting
her name] So Jenny goes out and is told to lay down and Hermy, with all of his
legs will step ove her and never never step on her at even once. So she lays
down and the caterpillar steps over her very carefully, but the last girl
dumps a bucket of water on her and the leader Says " I 'm sooo sorry
but Hermy isn't potty trained."
so much for now. Anyone know some others not in the skit file on the archives?
