Need the Time Skit
at least two scouts
a few stumps, chairs, or a bench
a sheet of newspaper
a marker (optional)
Scout is reading the newspaper while sitting on a bench.
#1: What a beautiful day. And, I see the Yankees won again. Ho-hum, I think I'll rest a bit.
(He lays down and puts the newspaper over his face. Each time the sleeping scout gets a little grumpier about being woken up. Another scout walks up and shakes his shoulder.)
#2: Hey buddy, you got the time?
#1: Huh? Yeah, it's 3:40.
#2: Thanks, buddy. (and walks off)
#3: Hey buddy, you got the time?
#1: Huh? Yeah, it's 3:45.
#3: Thanks, buddy. (and walks off)
#4: Hey buddy, you got the time?
#1: Huh? Yeah, it's 3:50.
#4: Thanks, buddy. (and walks off)
#1: That's it! I'm tired of people asking me for the time. This will take care of that.
(He writes, or pretends to write, on the newspaper as he says out loud...)
I DON'T HAVE THE TIME!
There, that should do it.
(He lays down to sleep with the newspaper over his face)
#5: Hey, what's this say? (looking at newspaper) I Don't Have The Time.
(He shakes the sleepers shoulder to wake him up.)
#2: (looks at his watch) I've got the time - it's 3:55. Have a nice day! (as he walks off)
