Stupid Family of Three

SCRIPT

There was a family of three; a father, a mother and their son,
talking about the stars.

S:    (Trying to knock down the stars with a pole)
F:    What are you doing with that long pole, my son?
S:    I’m trying to knock down the stars.
F:    How stupid you are! You can’t reach the stars from the ground.
     Why don’t you go up on the roof?
M:   Darling, that’s not enough. He has to add another pole to that.
