Child 13: How do you make a rabbit stew? (Pauses) Make it wait for three hours!
Funny Bunny: (Holding up hands) OK! Enough!
Child 14: : What do you call a rabbit with fleas? Bugs Bunny!
Funny Bunny: (Angrily, and having a quick itch) OK! What didn’t you understand about enough?
Clumsy Chicken: (Jumping up and down, hysterically, on the spot) And I’m running out of time! Don’t you see? If I can’t give a basketful of eggs to the farmer, I’m …. I’m…

Envious Emu: No doubt enviously?

Funny Bunny: Now, that’s what I call an honourable ostrich!
