(One participant is on his hands and knees as the mower.)
Owner : (Yanking imaginary rope, while mower sputters) This darned old mower, I can't get it going. I need some help. (Gets help from another participant.)
Helper #1: So you just want me to yank on this rope, and get it started ? That's easy ! (Yanking rope)
Mower : (Splutters, bobs up and down)
Helper #1: I'm sorry. I can't seem to do it. Have you checked the gas ?
Owner : Yes, I have. Thanks anyway. Well, let's see who else has a strong arm. (Selects another participant) What I need you to do is to give a real good yank on the starting rope and make it run.
Helper #2: Sure thing. (Yanks rope a couple of times.)
Mower : (Bobs up and down, sputters, coughs)
Helper #2: Sorry, I can't do it either.
Owner : What I need is someone big and strong (Selects a Leader) (Leader will probably make some comments, but let him talk and get him to pull the rope)
Mower : (Splutters, coughs, starts to vibrate and run)
Owner : There. All it needed was a good jerk.
