going to send a team to the sun.
US SCIENTISTâ€”Youâ€™re mad! They will burn up before they even get
RUSSIAN SCIENTISTâ€” Donâ€™t worry, we have things under control.
Weâ€™re sending them at night, so it isnâ€™t so hot.
BEAM ME UP
Scout walks on stage, looks around slowly, then says:
â€œScotty, the aliens are very unfriendly! Quick! Beam me up!
Scout 2 walks around, drops a 2x4 beam on the ground with a loud â€˜thunkâ€™.
Scout 1 walks across the area scattering handfuls of leaves that he takes from a big bag.
Scout 2 approaches and asks: â€˜What are you doingâ€.
Scout 1: â€˜Iâ€™m leaving!â€
Two scouts meet, and the first scout begins to brag that he can climb
Scout 1: Can you climb that tree?
Scout 2: Sure, Iâ€™ve done it lots of times.
Scout 1: Can you climb the steep hill over there?
Scout 2: No problem for me.
Scout 1: How about the Empire State Building?
Scout 2: Did it!
Scout 1: How about Mount Everest?
Scout 2: Boy that was a cold day. Iâ€™ve done that too. I told
you, I can climb anything.
Scout 1: Iâ€™ll bet you ten bucks I can show you something you
Scout 2: Youâ€™re on!
Scout 1 pulls out a flashlight and shines the beam up into the
sky. â€œAll right. Climb that!â€
Scout 2: Are you crazy? No way!
Scout 1: I know you would back out. Now, pay up!
Scout 2: I wonâ€™t pay because itâ€™s not fair. I know you! Iâ€™d
start climbing, and when I get halfway up youâ€™d turn the flashlight off!
