(Six performers best, minimum five; if only five, remove French Scout; if more than six, have more Americans walking together and taking turns asking the questions. If only four, Spanish Scout quietly moves elsewhere and becomes Martian Scout.)

American Boy walks in: "Wow, a World Jamboree!"

Mexican: "Los Boy Scouts."

American: "Wow! Thanks!"

American: "Amazing! Thanks!"

(Wanders up to Sign Language Scout)

American: "Excellent! Thanks!"

(Wanders over to Martian Scout)

American: "Wow, you're a Martian? How do you say 'Boy Scouts' in Martian?"

Martian: (Approaches American and does a complicated handshake with right arm that ends in a flip with the American on the ground. Martian just stands there.)

American (Stands up, rubs sore butt): "Really?"

Martian: (Nods head)

American: (Tries similar on Martian, but Martian does not fall down, just stands there.) "Like that?"

Martian: (Shakes head)

American: "Can you show me again?"

Martian: (Same thing; American falls down. Martian stands there.)

American: (Tries similar, but Martian does not fall down) "Like that?"

Martian: (Shakes head)

American: "Can you show me one more time?"

Martian: (Same thing; American falls down. Martian just walks away.)
