The Mugging
Crossroads of America Council

Personnel: Five Cubs; two muggers, two policemen and one victim.

The two muggers entering the stage talking and the victim enters from the other side and walks past the other two.

Mugger 1: The next person we meet we are going to mug!

Mugger 2: Sure hope he has a lot of money, because we are broke!

(As the victim walks past, the two muggers struggle with the victim until all are exhausted and fall to the floor.)

Mugger 1: Looks at his hand and says 30 cents, only 30 cents?

Mugger 2: You fought really hard for 30 cents, why?

Victim: Oh no! I thought you found the $100 bill in my shoe!

The muggers start to mug the victim again but the two policemen enter and arrest the two muggers. All exit pretending to go to the police station.

Watson And Holmes
York Adams Area

Players:  Three boys—Narrator, Sherlock Holmes, and Dr. Watson.

Setting:  Two sleeping bags are set out on the stage and the boys are “sleeping” on them.  You can add a campfire ring to show that it’s a camp setting.

Narrator:  Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson went on a camping trip.  After a good meal and a a mug of hot chocolate, they lay down for the night, and went to sleep.  Some hours later, Holmes awoke.  We now join our favorite sleuth and his faithful assistant…

Holmes (nudging Watson): "Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you see."

Watson (rubbing eyes and looking up): I see millions and millions of stars.

Holmes:  Good.  What does that tell you?

Watson (rubbing chin as he ponders the question):

Astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets.

Astrologically, I observe that Saturn is in Leo.

Horologically, I deduce that the time is approximately a quarter past three.

Theologically, I can see that God is all powerful and that we are small and insignificant.

Meteorologically, I suspect that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow.

What does that tell you Holmes?

Holmes (starring at his friend and shaking his head):  Watson, it tells me that someone has stolen our tent!
