Sample Text (from The Elephant's Child)

                        Elephant’s Child:              But I feel I have to point out to you that you adults don’t always know what’s best

Hippopotamus & Baboon:            (Together) Pardon?

Elephant’s Child:              (Patiently) OK I’ll say it again. You adults don’t always know what’s best

Hippopotamus:                 We don’t?

Baboon:                               Do explain!

Elephant’s Child:              Well, who was it that gave you the idea of getting a trunk?

Hippopotamus:                 Er, well

Bird:                                       Ah! I think he has you there. You did all trundle off to the Limpopo River

Snake:                                  For a nose job!

Crocodile:                            Courtesy of yours truly!

Snake:                                  Yes, you can certainly take credit for that! Course there were a few ‘unsuccessful’ nose jobs

Crocodile:                            You mean, supper?

Snake:                                  But let’s not dwell on that!

Hippopotamus:                 No. Let’s not! The majority of those elephants came back with highly successful nose jobs

Crocodile:                            All thanks to me!

Elephant’s Child:              And you know the biggest plus of all this?

Bird:                                       Do tell!

Elephant’s Child:              It was that the spanking actually stopped! And I could henceforth lead a spank-free existence!
