The Submarine

Need: 4 to 8 Scouts. Have them stand in a line.

He yells this to the first mate, who in turn tells second mate, down the line until finally the torpedo

CAPTAIN: "Load main tube # 1 and stand by to fire."
He yells this to the first mate, who in turn tells second mate, down the line until finally the torpedo

TORPEDO OPERATOR: "I don't know How."
Next the captain gives the order to fire down the line, but the

the Captains example until at last the knife comes to the Torpedo Officer Who looks at the knife and says;
The Lawnmower Sale
