The Good Samaritan-02
Posted On: 2021-12-30

A Scout walks out from backstage, stumbles, and falls on his face. He struggles noisily to get up but keeps his forehead on the floor. He sometimes succeeds in getting into a position with his feet and his forehead on the floor, and his butt in the air. He rotates in this position, keeping his forehead in one place. He calls for help for help, repeating "My forehead is stuck!"

As he struggles, other Scouts walk casually past. They ignore him or look with curiosity, but they do not help.

Finally, a Scout comes running up and heaves the victim to his feet. The victim is effusively grateful, but the rescuer just looks at his face. He reaches out, plucks something from the victim's forehead, and pops it into his mouth. "Thanks," he says, "I knew I'd lost my gum somewhere around here!"
