Spotlight. Dr. Jump is at a podium.
DR. JUMP: Greetings, citizens of Strawberry. I have requested time at this meeting of the Strawberry Elks to remind you that the last night of the Perseids is tomorrow, and we will be meeting at midnight to raise our voices in harmony, as per the instructions of the extraterrestrial communication.
Now, I have provided sheet music for the song we will be singing, it is with your secretary. If you are unable to obtain the sheet music at this meeting, I have filed copies with the Strawberry public library- excuse me sir! The noises you are making have left me in no doubt as to your displeasure. You do not have to throw things as well.
Yes, now- as I was saying, despite Mr. Lambert’s expressed opinion, I am sure the rest of you can appreciate the importance, the vast infinite importance, of complying with the communication. It is only a little music, but from a little music there can- there can and will come such great things. Mr. Lambert, I have asked you once already, and we will have words about this in the coming age of splendor, technological advancement, and peace.
Thank you for your time.
