Four People Fooled
short skit with Ernie (Jim Henson) and a Newsboy
[Scene: A newsboy is standing outside, advertising a pile of newspapers. Ernie enters.]
Newsboy: Extree! Extree! Read all about it! Four people fooled!
Ernie: Four people fooled?
Newsboy: Read all about it, mister.
Ernie: Gee, that sounds kind of interesting. Okay, here you go ...
[He gives the newsboy some money, takes a paper, and starts to read.]
Hmm .... Hey, wait a minute. I donít see anything in here about four people being fooled.
Newsboy: Extree! Extree! Read all about it! Five people fooled!
Ernie [dejectedly]: I think I just made the papers.
[He squeezes his nose, which honks.]
