Fool's Gold   Fool's Gold Skit   Scout Skit

at least 4 scouts - Assayer, his partner, 2 or more miners
The assayer and his partner are in the office, waiting for gold miners to bring in gold from their claims.
Partner: Hey, mind if I go across the street to grab a bite for lunch?
Assayer: Sure, I'll watch the shop.

First miner walks in with a sack.
Assayer: Howdy, what can I do for you?
Miner #1: I think I found some gold on my claim. Here, tell me what this is and what it's worth.
(hands over sack and assayer looks inside)
Assayer: This is just fool's gold.
Miner #1: Dag num it! I've wasted 3 months in them there hills! (storms out, leaving his sack behind.)

As many miners as you have each walk in with a sack and the same general scene unfolds with the assayer getting a pile of sacks.

Finally, his partner comes back from lunch.
Partner: Hey, whatcha got in all them sacks?
Assayer: Ha, I've got all those fools' gold!

I am a Bear Den Leader for Pack 215 for the American Scouts stationed at RAF Mildenhall in England. I chose this skit for us to perform at our Pine Wood Derby lock-in. The Bears enjoyed the joke and really got into their roles. I'm unsure if the rest of the Pack other than adults appreciated the punchline, but the Bears had fund and I had fun mentoring them on this skit.
