Fishing Expedition (vaudeville routine)
- the fishing expedition is an old vaudeville routine performed by all members of the performance troop
How it worksEdit
In a fishing expedition one actor portrays the fisherman, another portrays the fish and the rest of the troop play seagulls.
The skit when the fisherman asks the fish irrelevant questions, none of which Jesus would ask. The fish realizing he is in an awkward position, pleads for help from the seagulls.
The seagulls proceed to distract the fisherman from the fish by making a great deal of noise and shitting on everything in sight.
Many jokes are told and the skit ends with the fisherman going to Gitmo for daring to ask such irrelevant and partisan questions.
