The Bubble Gum on the Street
Posted On: 2019-07-17
One of those skits Cubs just love and laugh at.
Cast: Kid, Dog, Basketball Player, Car, Jogger and Old Man
Setting: City Street
Kid: Blowing bubbles is just great. Watch. (Blows imaginary bubble; it pops and lands somewhere on the ground.) Hmm. Where did it go? I should look for it. (Goes around and exits, still looking for it.) Enter dog, who stops, sniffs at gum, pees on it, and exits. Basketball player is dribbling ball when it gets stuck on the gum -- he tries to loosen it and finally does. Car drives right over it. Jogger goes by, his foot gets stuck on it; old man comes by and his cane gets stuck on it. Finally, Kid comes back.
Kid: Ahh! There's my piece of gum! (Picks it up, pops it in his mouth and continues chewing.)
