This is a skit I've only seen done once-by my troop at summer camp last
summer. Don't know where they came up with it.
You set up chairs in two files. This simulates the cabin of a passenger
aircraft. One of our scouts donned one of our lady ASM's dresses and put
on a mop head as a wig. He was the stewardess (he stole the show).
Everyone's flying along, when the captain comes on the intercom. "Ladies
and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. We are due to arrive in
Miami in four hours. Please enjoy your flight."
A few moments later, he comes on the intercom again. "Ladies and
gentlemen, we just lost one of our left engines. Please don't worry; this
aircraft can fly wlithout an engine. Howegver, it will now take us five
hours to reach Miami."
Well, you guessed it, a second engine goes out ("it will now take us six
hours to reach Miami,") then a third engine goes out ("it will now take
us seven hours to reach Miami).
Finally, when the last engine goes out, one of the passengers says, "Oh
heck, I guess this measn we'll be up here all day!
