The Good Chef: (the waters will be Jello-like blue substances in bags, for ease of separating. The land will be a rock or other similar item. Peel the water off and put on either side to "separate." When showing vegetation, use basket of fruit and bouquet of ugly flowers. Wave flowers in narrator's face.) Oon zee thurd dey, Gud seeed, "Let dry lund eppeer oooot ooff zee veters."

Narrator: God made animals to leap and frolic, frolic and leap.

(The chef should look questioningly at the narrator, not masking disgust or cunfusion.)

Narrator: And God made people to watch over and appreciate his creation. And he told the people to take care of all that he had made.

(Chef does double take, and looks very closely at the "creation" in the bowl or platter where "creation" has taken place.)

Narrator: What are you doing?

The Good Chef: Eem vatching ufer eet, leek you seed.

Narrator: That's not your job, that's their job. (Motions to audience.)

The Good Chef: Oh, yah. Ee knew dat.
