Worst Criminal Skit
4 to 8 scouts
All the criminals should act as tough as they can. The worst criminal should be kind of sitting quietly in the corner away from the others.
(jailer leads new criminal to a cell, opens door, and pushes him in with the rest of the criminals. Jailer walks offstage.)
Scout #1: (shaking bars to cell) But, I'm innocent, I tell you!
(all the other criminals laugh at him)
Scout #2: Yeah, sure, we're ALL innocent. What did they say you did?
Scout #1: Robbed a bank.
Scout #2: Aw, I stole a Dodge Viper.
(everyone looks at Scout #3 expectantly)
Scout #3: Heck, I hijacked a city bus and drove it all the way to California.
(everyone looks at #4 expectantly)
Scout #4: That's nothing, I shot a guy - in the back.
(everyone looks at next one. Repeat for each scout until you get to the last one. Everyone is looking at him, but he doesn't say anything. Finally, ...)
Scout #1: Hey, what did you do?
Worst Criminal: (slowly looking around at each one. Say in a mean, tough voice.) You know those little tags on mattresses that you aren't supposed to remove? Well, I cut the one off my mattress!
(The rest of the criminals run to the bars, start shaking them, and screaming in fear)
All: Help! Get us out of here!!!
