Skit

 

Action

Have the Emperor sit on the throne. The two scouts with sticks act as guards. The Emperor then says,"Each person in town will give me presents. If I do not like them, they will be beheadded!" The first townsperson comes and is forced to his knees by one of the two guards. He then says,"My lord, I have brought you gold." The Emperor says,"Gold huh? Well let me tell you something, I own all of the gold. Guards, kill him!" The townsperson is then taken away. The next townsperson comes and is forced to his knees. He then says,"My lord, I have brought you exotic fruit." The Emperor responds,"Well it's too bad that I own all of the exotic fruit. Guards, kill him!" The townsperson is taken away. The next townsperson comes and forced to his knees. He says,"My lord, I have brought you the deed to my land." The Emperor responds,"Well in case you haven't noticed, I own all of the land. Guards, kill him!" The townsperson is taken away. The last townsperson comes and is forced to his knees. He then says,"My lord, I have brought you raisins." The Emperor says,"Let me try one of these raisins."He pretends to eat one. He says,"These raisins are pretty good. Lets make a deal, if you give me raisins every day for the rest of your life, you will be spared." The scene then jumps three years later and picks up as the townsperson with raisins is forced to his knees before the Emperor. He then says,"My lord, I do not have your raisins today." The Emperor says,"Well, why not?" The townsperson says,"Well, my rabbit died."
