Loon: Baseball is having something called The World Series now. So the Lords of the 4th Dimension have brought a famous player from long ago for the 3 question interview. Welcome to Babe Ruth, famous baseball player. Mr. Ruth, how does one play baseball anyway?
Babe’s ghost: Say, don’t kid me, kid.
Loon: Is it anything at all like hopscotch?
Babe’s ghost: Yeah, about as much as Jack Dempsey is like hopscotch.
Loon: Was this Jack Dempsey another member of your baseball playing group?
Babe’s ghost: Say, what is this? You ain’t from around here, are you, kid? (Babe vaults through the ceiling, using a bat for a pole.)
Loon: There you have it, a special edition of the 3 question interview for all you people with an odd interest in grown men playing games. (Loon exits, stage middle.)
She brought him chocolate.
