Cue: Aaron [Speak like Bugs Bunny.]
Ummm, what’s up, Moses? Lookie here what I just found, a really neato staff! And there’s a small stone tablet attached that says,
“Just stop, drop, and watch. Warranty expires after twelve uses. Shalom, Yahweh” Hey, let’s see what it can do. . . .
Aaron tossed the staff onto the ground, and it turned into a giant
p y t h o n t h a t b e g a n t o w r a p i t s e l f a r o u n d M o s e s , s q u e e z i n g r e a l l y , . . . causing his tongue to stick out and his eyes to grow big tight
and wide. . . . Moses managed to gasp out these words in a squeaky voice: . . .
Cue: Moses [Gasping for air]
Pretty . . . nice . . . staff, . . . Aaron. . . . Now . . . if . . . you . . . could . . . call . . . it . . . off . . . me, . . . I . . . think . . . we . . . need . . . to . . . go . . . see . . . a . . . pharaoh . . . about . . . some . . . frogs. . . .
The python turned back into the staff. Moses and Aaron picked it up
and skipped over to the great Pharaoh
, . . . who was drinking a
glass of Nile water while squeezing the last bit of blood from a turnip. . . . Moses pointed the staff at Pharaoh and sang a mes- sage to him that went to the tune of “Louie, Louie”: . . .
