Props Needed: 2 bandanas, banana

Instructor: Today I am going to give you a short lesson in being prepared. When going on a hike, it is sometimes necessary to take only the bare minimum with you. I will show you how useful a bandana can be for this purpose. I will need a volunteer from the audience to help me demonstrate this. (Volunteer will be someone who already knows about the skit and has agreed to participate. They should be wearing a bandana and have a banana with them.) Because the audience is so large, I will show one side and my volunteer will show the other. (Instructor and volunteer should stand so that neither one can see what the other is doing but so that the audience can see both. Instructor takes out a bandana) I’ve got my bandana!

Volunteer: (takes out banana) I’ve got my banana!

Instructor: Now, do exactly as I say so that your half of the audience can see. First, fold it in half.

Volunteer: Are you sure? Continue reading
