(Enter Captain Kangaroo. Moose is wearing armor.)
CAPTAIN KANGAROO: Hey, Moose, why are you wearing armor?
MOOSE: Why not?
CAPTAIN KANGAROO: Well, it’s a nice day outside, so you don’t need a coat or anything like that.
MOOSE: So what?
CAPTAIN KANGAROO: So if you wear something heavy then you’ll be hot. And being hot isn’t nice.
MOOSE: Well, I just wanted to try it on.
CAPTAIN KANGAROO: What for?
MOOSE: Oh, I don’t know. Say, would you like to read a poem for me?
CAPTAIN KANGAROO: Sure, I love to read poems.
MOOSE: Just read this. (produces paper)
CAPTAIN KANGAROO: Well!
“Hold down those cheers
Because those spheres
Have grown teeth
To make things neat!”
That doesn’t make sense.
MOOSE: It what?
CAPTAIN KANGAROO: I said, it doesn’t make sense.
MOOSE: Okay, guys.
(Ping pong balls with daggers fall on the Captain)
CAPTAIN KANGAROO: Well, I guess it makes sense in one way or another, but the message itself is perfectly clear. (Collapses. Moose laughs.)
