I just gave my year 8s a Drama lesson because we were in a portable and they’ve been good. (Plus it was Corey’s birthday.) The play at the end that they had to put together had to have the following things in it: a tv, a cat, a death and an old lady.
One of the groups had only 3 kids in it. They had their tv as a chair lying on a table with the back on the table top and the seat facing the audience, with A4 pieces of paper with the names of different tv shows written on them draped over the seat. Will was the old lady who was watching the tv.
“Hmmmm, ‘The Block’,” s/he said. “I don’t like that.”
(The paper with ‘The Bock’ was whisked away and another piece of paper with ‘Masterchef’ on it was revealed underneath.)
“I don’t like ‘Masterchef’ either,” the old lady said. “What else is on?”
The ‘Masterchef’ page was whisked away, revealing ‘Home And Away’ underneath on another piece of paper.
“Oooo yuck!” the old lady said and aimed the remote at the tv.
The last piece of paper was removed, revealing the seat of the chair with the graffitied image of a penis that a wag had drawn there at some stage.
“Oh! SBS! Lovely,” and the old lady settled down to watch as we all laughed.
(This anecdote is aimed at Aussie audiences. SBS is a government funded station that shows foreign movies with raunch factor late at night.)
