It doesn't, Jay. But it is fun, which is also a goal of Scouting and a
major reason why there are Scouts. There are plenty of chances
to teach values in a campout, and in fact the SM minute that closes
most campfires is an excellent time to do so.
Virtually any skit derives it's humor from exaggerating some aspect
of a situation. The key is to not personalize the skit, and certainly
not perform it in a situation where it would be clearly inappropriate
such as a camput with handicapped/differently abled people attending.
