A scout walks out from backstage, stumbles, and falls on his face. He struggles noisily to get up, but can’t seem to get his forehead off the floor. He sometimes succeeds in getting into a position with his feet and his forehead on the floor, and his bum in the air. He rotates in this position, keeping his forehead in one place. He calls for help, repeating, “My forehead is stuck!”
As he struggles, other Scouts walk casually past. They ignore him, or look with curiosity, but no one helps. Finally, a Scout comes running up and heaves the victim to his feet. The victim is extremely grateful, but the rescuer just stares at the victim’s forehead while the victim thanks him.
Ignoring the victim, the rescuer reaches out, plucks something off the victim’s forehead, and pops it into his mouth. “Thanks!” he says, “I knew I’d lost my gum somewhere around here.”
