Sometimes I was frustrated in school and it was so serious, everyone so intent on some subject, and I just needed a little break.
I thought about what would happen my teacher was explaining a complicated calculation and if I suddenly conjured up a goat or a sheep, or a little congo-line of ducklings and a mother duck and let them loose, wandering through the classroom. No one would know it was me, but the animals would be real. Though maybe I'd make them disappear before animal control got there.
What do you think would happen?
How about if this happened oh, say every so many weeks or so?
Would I become suspect?
How about have you ever been standing in line at the bank? What if suddenly there was a real live elephant just standing there. It silently appeared and took a moment for people to start noticing it. What do you think the reaction would be at your bank? Would this be funny or what?
Or maybe you're in line at the grocery store and it's taking forever. Wouldn't it be funny if a hippopatumus suddenly went into the empty check-out isle next to you and all the customers in your line?
How about monkeys loose in the movie theater?
Would that be funny?
