Scouts dressed as astronauts.

Preparation

At the beginning of the skit, the astronauts can come out of the rocket if it is large. They can do moon walking (as if low gravity). They sing the verse and chorus together, then each boy in turn tells one of the astronaut jokes with the other boys saying the prompt (who? what? etc.) After each set of jokes, sing the chorus again while moon walking. You can add or subtract jokes depending on the number of boys you have.
