Consequence of Lying

SCRIPT

The young mother was shocked to learn that her little son had told a lie.
She took the boy on her knees and explained the consequences of lying.

M:  A tall young man with red fiery eyes with two sharp horns
   appears, grabs you and takes you to Mars at night.
       And you have to work in a dark canyon for 50 years.
       Now, would you like to tell me a lie again?

S:    No! No, mam, I won’t.
       You tell lies better than I do.
