The Story of Foot Foot Foot, Foot Foot, and Foot
(Originally heard at Camp Lowden, BSA in the summer of 1982)

Setup: This is a one-person story, and can be used to keep folks entertained for 3 to 5 minutes.

Once upon a time, there were three rabbits, Foot Foot Foot, ‘n Foot Foot, ‘n Foot. Now, Foot Foot Foot was the oldest, then came Foot Foot, then Foot. One day, Foot Foot Foot ‘n Foot Foot ‘n Foot were sitting around the hutch. Foot Foot Foot said to Foot Foot ‘n Foot, “Man, I’m hungry.”

Foot Foot said, “Yeah, I’m hungry too!”

And Foot said, “Me too!”

So Foot Foot Foot said, “Hey Foot, how about getting us something to eat?”
And Foot Foot said, “Yeah Foot, how about getting us something to eat?”
So Foot said to himself, “Man, Foot Foot Foot and Foot Foot are much bigger than me, I have to go.” So Foot said to Foot Foot Foot ‘n Foot Foot, “OK Foot Foot Foot ‘n Foot Foot, I’ll go get something to eat.”

So Foot left the hutch and hopped down the road. As he hopped down the road, he stopped. He came across the most amazing carrot patch! There, across the field, was a patch of the most incredible, delectable carrots he had ever seen! He pulled one out of the ground and said “Wow! These are the most incredible, delectable carrots I’ve ever seen! Foot Foot Foot ‘n Foot Foot will love these!” So he pulled up a whole bunch and started carrying them back to the hutch. He took about three steps when he stopped and dropped all the carrots. He looked at the carrots and said, “You know, if I take all these carrots back to Foot Foot Foot ‘n Foot Foot, those guys are going to eat all of them and I’m not going to get anything! I’m going to have one right now.” So he rummaged through the carrots and rummaged through the carrots and pulled one out. It was huge, orange, and dripping with carrot deliciousness! He grasped it between his paws, steeled himself for the effort, and took a nibble.

He stopped!

He dropped the carrot!

He turned blue! He was paralyzed! He fell over! He couldn’t move! As he lies there, he thought to himself, “I can’t move…”

A little while later, Foot Foot Foot ‘n Foot Foot were sitting in the hutch when Foot Foot Foot said to Foot Foot, “Hey Foot Foot, where do you think Foot is?”

Foot Foot said to Foot Foot Foot, “I don’t know where Foot is, Foot Foot Foot.”

Foot Foot Foot said, “Maybe we should go look for him Foot Foot.”

Foot Foot said, “That’s a good idea Foot Foot Foot.”

So they left the hutch to look for Foot. They hopped down the road, and they came upon the carrot patch. And there, in the middle, was Foot! They came up to him, and he was blue! He was paralyzed! He couldn’t move! Foot Foot Foot said, “Foot, are you OK?” And Foot thought to himself, “I can’t move…”

So Foot Foot Foot said to Foot Foot, “Foot Foot! Foot’s in trouble! You have to go get the doctor!”

And Foot Foot said, “OK Foot Foot Foot! I’ll go get the doctor!”

So Foot Foot took off down the road to town. He ran up to the doctor’s office and knocked on the door and said “Doctor! Doctor! Doctor! You have to come quick! Foot’s in trouble!”

And the Doctor said, “OK Foot Foot! I’m coming!”

So they took off down the road. Now you have to imagine this, Foot Foot was a rabbit, and the Doctor was a duck…

OK, so Foot Foot and the Doctor got there, and the Doctor was checking him out and checking him out and checking him out! [Pause] And the Doctor stopped. And the Doctor said, “Foot Foot Foot ‘n Foot Foot, I have some terrible news. Foot’s gonna die.” [Get audience to saw “Awww”] And Foot died and they buried him.

So the next day, Foot Foot Foot ‘n Foot Foot were sitting around the hutch. Foot Foot Foot said to Foot Foot ‘n Foot, “Man, I’m hungry.”

Foot Foot said, “Yeah, I’m hungry too!”

Foot Foot Foot said, “Hey Foot Foot, how about getting us something to eat?”

And Foot Foot said to himself, “Man, Foot Foot Foot is much bigger than me, I have to go.” So Foot Foot said to Foot Foot Foot, “OK Foot Foot Foot, I’ll go get something to eat.”

[Go through this part a little faster than the time with Foot.]
So Foot Foot left the hutch and hopped down the road. As he hopped down the road, he stopped. He came across the most amazing carrot patch!

He dropped the carrot!

He turned blue! He was paralyzed! He fell over! He couldn’t move! As he lies there, he thought to himself, “I can’t move…”

A little while later, Foot Foot Foot was sitting in the hutch when his tummy said, “Hey Foot Foot Foot, I’m hungry!”

Foot Foot Foot thought to himself, “I wonder where Foot Foot is.”

So Foot Foot Foot left the hutch to look for Foot Foot. He hopped down the road, and came upon the carrot patch. And there, in the middle, was Foot Foot! He was blue! He was paralyzed! He couldn’t move! Foot Foot Foot yelled, “Foot Foot! Don’t go anywhere! I’m going to get the doctor!” And Foot Foot thought to himself, “I can’t move…”

So Foot Foot Foot took off down the road to town. He ran up to the doctor’s office and knocked on the door and said “Doctor! Doctor! Doctor! You have to come quick! Foot Foot’s in trouble!”

And the Doctor said, “OK Foot Foot Foot! I’m coming!”

So they took off down the road. Now you have to imaging this, Foot Foot Foot was a rabbit, and the Doctor was a duck…

And Foot Foot Foot said, “But Doctor, Foot Foot can’t die.”

And the Doctor said, “Why Foot Foot Foot? Why can’t Foot Foot die?”

And Foot Foot Foot said, “’Cause I’ve already got one Foot in the grave!”
