Boy 2:Knock it off! This is a great spot! Just wait till we catch a few.
(Boys stand a few seconds with no bites.)
Boy 1:It's 2:00 AM and we still haven't had a bite. I think my right ear just fell off.
Boy 2:Stop complaining! Soon they'll start biting; just wait.
Boy 1:(after a short wait) 3:00AM and still no bites! My other ear just fell off.
Boy 2:Wait! Wait!
Boy 1:Talk louder, my ears fell off.
Boy 2:Cut that out!!!
(Another boy walks onto the stage at some distance from the other two. He begins to fish, and catches one after another.)
Boy 1:It's 4:00 AM; my toes just fell off. I have to go to the bathroom, but I can't afford to have anything else fall off. We still haven't had a single bite. (Watches as the new boy catch more fish.) Say Charlie, that kid over there. (points) Look at all the fish he's getting!
Boy 2:Wow I wonder how he does it? (raises his voice) HEY-KID!
Boy 2:You're catching fish over there, aren't you?
Boy 3:UMMM HUMM. (Nods his head and catches another fish.)
Boy 2:You got more than ten-don't you?
Boy 3:MMMMMMMMMM (Nods his head.)
Boy 2:How do you do it? We've been fishing here for hours without a bite, while you get them one after the other.
Boy 3:MMM MMMMMMMMM MMMMMMMM MMMMMMMMMMMM
Boy 3:MMMMM MMMMMM MMMMMMMMMMM
Boy 2:I can't hear you.
Boy 3:MMMMMMMM MMMMMMMMMM MMMMMMMMM
Boy 2:I don't understand you! What are you trying to say?
Boy 3:(Loudly spits a large something into his hand.) YOU HAVE TO KEEP THE WORMS WARM!!! (Puts the worms back in his mouth.)
Water Safety Seals
Characters:Ringmaster, Clown, six seals (all in appropriate costumes)
Scene:A cardboard ring, about 2' high, large enough for all seals to stand inside. Paint it to resemble a pool. As the curtain opens, seals are in the pool, flapping their arms.
Ringmaster:And now, ladies and gentlemen, we present those barking aquanauts, those super swimmers of the sea, our very own Water Safety Seals!
Seals:(Flapping arms and singing to the tune of Clementime.)
In the ocean, in a home pool,
In a lake or in a tub;
Where there's water there is danger,
Even in a shower scrub.
If you plunge down to the bottom
Of the ocean, cool and green,
You must take some swimming lessons,
For you're not a submarine.
Seal 1:(Clapping flippers) Arf! Arf! You'll get a glad hand from us seals if you'll only swim where there is a lifeguard.
Seal 2:Arf! Arf! We'll applaud you is you always swim with a buddy. Never swim alone! (Claps flippers.)
