Pulling and Pushing Rope Skit
a big rope
a big rope with a long, stiff wire through the center of it to make it stiff.
One scout takes center stage and begins explaining the next skit or announcement. Then, the second scout enters, dragging a rope around in front of the first scout and around him.
Scout #1: What are you doing?
Scout #2: Pulling a rope around.
Scout #1: Why!?!
Scout #2: You don't expect me to PUSH it do you?
(#2 exits and #1 begins talking again while #3 enters pushing the stiff rope and circles #1)
Scout #1: What do you think you're doing?
Scout #3: Pushing a rope around of course. Anyone can PULL a rope, but it takes real skill to PUSH one!
(#1 can chase #3 off stage)
