A skit I like but don't see very often (only twice--once at roundtable in
1993, and at Wood Badge this past weekend) is the Raisins skit.
Basically, you get the patrol together, and they sing,
"We're three scoops of raisins,
three scoops of raisins,
We're three scoops of raisins--
In Kellogg's Raisin Bran!"
At this point, another scout comes runing out with a big wooden spoon,
saying, "Yum yum, raisin bran, ohh boy, I love raisin bran," and he grabs
one of the raisins and drags him off kicking and screaming. He comes
back in a few seconds later, licking his spoon in a satisfied manner.
Now the raisins singe, "We're two scoops or raisins," etc.
Same thing happens again--guys grabs one of the raisins, drags him off, etc.
When you get down to the last guy, he sings, "I'm one sc--sc--oop of
r-r-r-raisins," etc., "In K-K-K-ellogg's Raisin B-B-B-ran," looking
around in a terrified manner.
Of course, the guy comes charging out, waving his spoon, at which point
the raisin exits, singing, "Oh I wish I were an Oscar Meyer weiner..."
This got a huge laugh at Wood Badge...the key is really ham it up.
Another hting I like about it is yhou don't see it perofrmed very much.
I get so tired of seeing the same skits from the same couple of books you
can buy at the scout shop--"Creative CAmpfires," I tihink one of them is
Enjoy! I love skits.
