Keep America Beautiful Contest

6 Cubs or Scouts
Setting: Five Cubs Sitting in Their Clubhouse (indicated by appropriate signs) playing a game.

Cub 1: (Runs in, very excited) Hey, you guys! Did you hear about the big contest?
Cub 2: What contest? What's it about?
Cub 1: The "Keep America Beautiful Contest," that's what!
Cub 3: Are there prizes? A contest is no good without prizes.
Cub 1: Sure, lots of prizes. Neat ones like bicycles and radios, and lots of good stuff!
Cub 4: (Gloomily) I bet it's hard. Contests with neat prizes are always hard.
Cub 1: Nope! It's easy. Even the rules say it's SIMPLE-in big letters. The winner is the one who picks the easiest way.
Cub 5: The easiest way to do what?
Cub 1: The easiest way to keep America Beautiful. That's what I've been talking about!
Cub 6: (With a swagger) Ha! Then I'm a cinch to win!
Cub 1: Why's it so cinchy for you? What's your great way to keep America beautiful?
Cub 6: (Takes out a comb and combs his hair) See! That's the easiest way I know to keep America Beautiful.
(The others look at him, then at each other. Quickly they surround him, carry or drag him to a large box marked TRASH, and dump him in.)
Cub 1: Like he said, fellahs, we're a cinch to win! That's the easiest way I know to keep America beautiful.
(they exit, laughing while Cub 6 stands up in the trash box with a disgusted look on his face.)
