Narrator: Once upon a time, there was a village inhabited by the village people who were terrorized by a creature called the Medicrane. (Medicrane swoops in, grabs a villager, and leaves. The villagers then grieve but then rejoice over dividing up his stuff. Shout stuff like, "I got his wallet!" "Oh yeah? Well I got his Twinkies" Ham it up) Villager #1: Hey, I heard that Medicranes like holes. Lets dig a hole and kill it when it falls for it!" (Villagers mime digging a hole) Medicrane comes along and says, "Oooh! A hole! Maybe...Nah!" and grabs another villager and leaves. Grieving process is repeated. Villager #2: I heard that Medicranes like loons. Lets put a loon in the hole and kill it then!" Villager #3: But we don't have a loon." Villager #2: This log looks like a loon, smells like a loon, must be a loon!" They throw the loon in the hole. Medicrane comes along and says, "A loon in hole...Nah" and grabs another villager and grieving process is repeated. Villager #3: "Sugar! I need sugar! Hey! Maybe Medicranes like sugaar!" Villager #4:Lets put some sugar inside the log/loon!" Villagers put sugar inside of log/loon. The medicrane comes along and says "Sugar!!!" Villagers then descend upon the Medicrane and pretend to kill it. Narrator: "And the moral of this story is:" Everybody comes in and starts singing, "Just a loon full of sugar helps the Medicrane go down, the Medicrane go down, the Medicrane go down. Just a loon full of sugar helps the Medicrane go down, in the most delightful way!"
