An excerpt …

(Lights, camera …)

ZADE: What’s that eating on my toe?

WREN: (looking down) Seems to be a rare Lithuanian Crocodile who’s contracted the fatal bongo-bongo disease and he’s drooling on your hangnail!

ZADE: Oh, drat! Whatever shall we do? Whatever shall we do!

WREN: You know, Philpott, it’s a good thing I had my Poofy-Pops this morning!

ZADE: You at Poofy-Pops for breakfast?!!

WREN: I always eat Poofy-Pops for breakfast!

(they try a few other ideas.)

WREN: Just before I jumped overboard…

ZADE: Yes? Yes!

WREN: I pilfered a pile of Poofy Pops and placed them in my pocket!

ZADE: You what?

WREN: I pilfered a pile of Poofy Pops and placed them in my pocket!

ZADE: Hey! You can say that again!

WREN: No, I don’t think I can.

ZADE: Well get them out! Get them out! (Wren begins fishing around for the pilfered pops) But wait! It will do no good! We were adrift at sea for three days! They’ll be all soggy!

WREN: (pulling out the Poofy Pops) Not Poofy Pops! They stay light and crisp in your breakfast cereal…or your ocean

(when they try honesty, the sponsor shows up)

WREN: How about an honest commercial? (to the camera in a dead-pan voice) Look. Here is my little Johnny. (Zade immediately drops to his/her knees playing little Johnny) He eats Poofy Pops all the time. Notice that all his teeth are rotted out. (Zade covers his teeth with his gums and smiles) Notice that his eyes are crossed from too much sugar. And most of all, notice that little Johnny resembles a lumpy beach ball. When we call him for his breakfast of Poofy Pops he just rolls in the door and up to the breakfast table where we feed him with a scoop. All due to Poofy Pops.
