A man is jumping up and down saying "49, 49, 49 . . ." A second man enters and asks what he's doing. The first man says he's jumping on a manhole cover, that it's lots of fun, and invites the second man to try it. The second man begins jumping up and down, saying: "49, 49, 49 . . ." Suddenly the first man pulls the imaginary manhole cover from under his victim, who falls into the hole (he slumps low or falls offstage). The first man replaces the cover and proudly counts as he begins jumping again: "50, 50, 50 . . ."
