A Compendium of Skits from various sources.
Thar's a Bear the object is to set up a bear warning system.
One at a time set up five to eight fellows standing shoulder to
shoulder. The warning system is set up by having each of them
repeating the following message:
Leader: "Thar's a Bar." (correct pronunciation is important)
Bear Warner: "Whar?" (be certain that he pronounces it correct,
if not correct him.) Leader: "Over Thar."
(pointing with his right hand and arm extended) A to B: "Thar's
a Bar." (at which point he will probably point, so
correct him.) B: "Whar?" A: "Over Thar." (now he should point
with the arm extended for the rest of the skit.)
B - C: "Thar's a Bar." ... and so on until the last one says it
to the leader.
Go through the same procedure with the left hand. The third time
have both hands extended, right leg extended, bent down. Last
time the leader goes through the ritual, he pushes the guy next
to him so that the rest will fall like dominoes.
Three Against 1000 Three guys all bandaged up and smeared with

unbelievable; hamming it up. Finally, one guy says, "Yeah they
were the toughest three guys I've ever seen.

get upset telling him to not butt in line and to go to the end
of the line and began to shove him back. This person tries once
more to reach the front of the line and then gives up and says
something to the effect; "I'm giving up, they can get someone
else to open this ticket window.

toothache. He now has a toothache, headache, and a stomachache.

the toothache says, "Not that !" and runs off the stage.
