Country Scouts in the Big City
Posted On: 2010-02-22
Two scouts enter campfire circle
#1 Hi, we are country scouts, and this is our first trip to the big city.
#2 Hey, (looking around) did you ever see such big buildings?
#1 & # 2 ham it up, describing all the things they see, stores, statues, offices, traffic, etc. Gee, we don't have anything like this in the country.
Finally #1 stops, looks down, and says "Gee, I wonder what that is for? (He points to a round circle on the ground) - draw one if necessary.
#2 - Oh, I know what that is for, watch me ...
Scouts turn around, and then announce in a loud voice "Some time latter!"
#2 is jumping up and down on the round circle, yelling "21" each time he jumps. #1 is watching, smiling.
#3 comes up, obviously a city scout ..
#3 - Hey what are you guys doing?
#2 - Oh, we are from the country, and this is our first trip to the city. We didn't know it could be this much fun to visit the city.
#3 For crying out loud, guy, you are standing in the middle of the street jumping up and down!
#1 Yeah, but it is fun.
#3 But you'll be hit by a car. You country guys need a lesson about the city!
#2 Aw, come on, try it, it is fun "21" "21" "21"
#3 Not me guy ..
#1 Aw, come on, try it, it really is fun.
#3 steps onto the circle and does a little hop mumbling "21"
#2 No, you've got to really put yourself into it - climbs back on, and jumps again "21"
#3 Oh, OK, I'll show you guys that anything you country scouts can do, we city scouts can do better ... Steps back on the circle, takes a big jump and yells "21"
At this point #1 and #2 whisk away the manhole cover (circle) and #3 screams and falls to the ground, rolling away.
#1 and #2 put the circle back.
#1 climbs back on. OK, my turn now. Hey, this is really fun. "22" "22" "22" .....
