(Enter Skye and Bella)
SKYE: Ladies and Gentlemen… Lend me your ears… Welcome to our celebration of America’s 239th (or whatever is correct) Birthday!
BELLA: That’s right… your ears aren’t failing you…America is 239 years old!
BELLA and SKYE TOGETHER: Now that’s OLD!!!
SKYE: That’s right, Bella, America was born in 1776. Do you know what dance was all the rage back then?
BELLA: I can’t say that I do…
SKYE: The indepen-DANCE!
BELLA: What would you get if you crossed a patriot with a small curly haired dog?
SKYE: Hmmmm. I’m not sure.
BELLA: A Yankee Poodle!
SKYE: Hey, Bella, Have you heard the one about the Liberty Bell?
BELLA: Yeah, it cracked me up!!
SKYE: Bella, isn’t it something? More than 200 years ago, our forefathers defeated the British in the Revolutionary War.
BELLA: Wow! They must have been pretty strong, (flexes muscles) four men defeating a whole army!
SKYE: All right. All right. It’s time to get serious, Bella. Now I want you to put your thinking cap on.
BELLA: (pretends to put cap on) I’m ready, Skye.
SKYE: Are you sure?
BELLA: Yep, thinking cap on. Check. Brain in gear. Check. Got everyone’s full attention. Check. I’m ready for any question you’ve got.
SKYE: OK. Bella, can you tell us where the Declaration of Independence was signed?
BELLA: Simple Simon met a pie man… Anybody in the audience knows where the Declaration of Independence was signed. Duhhhhhh… It was signed at the bottom.
