a script with Pons and Ned
"Scene at a Croquet Game 2" by Bill Schott

Pons Maninoff = average guy
paired with
Ned Nuckledd = dim cousin

Bed Whitter = cousin with narcolepsy
paired with
Fed Well = cousin who eats a lot

G.E.D. = General Equivalency Dude, (pronounced JED) is a clone of Ned
paired with
Hed O'declaz = cousin with IQ of 150.

Led Love = missionary at large
paired with
Med Magilla = free lance pharmaceutical tester.

Ped Estrian = AKA Walker.
paired with
Zed Zees = cousin who is the leader of an all-bald band of desperate odd-ohs.

DED is the Angel of Death.
paired with
Red = now known as D-red, was a cousin but is now DED's assistant who only does vermin.

The scene opens with Pons and Ned serving as unofficial moderators as well as players. Characters are playing in teams of two.

Just as a reminder, guys, we will be playing longest ball.

And that ain't afferin' ta da croaky ball itself, but ta how fer one a da partners hits his er his ball.

(to Fed) How long will this take? I'm tired already.

(to Bed) Maybe an hour. Plenty a time to make it to taco Tuesday. 

(to Fed) It's only Monday. 

(to Bed) Yep, plenty a time.

(to Hed) Ned's clarifying statement concerning the length of the ball was quite useful if there were participants who may have felt the ball length was somehow a disparate factor.

(to GED grinning) If Ned's head were to be replaced with a croquet ball -- Hmm? That may have already happened.

(to Hed) That seems unlikely for many reasons, to include human flesh and wood not being in the least bit interchangeable.

(to GED) Ned defies a plethora of natural laws.

I would like to open this sporting event with a word of prayer.

Make that word "Amen", Led. 

(walking in place) Let's get going. 

I don't think I have any lines. 

(to D-red) I am here to collect one of these croqueteers.

I'm sure there's a few dead festering moles under the lawn for me to dig up.

To be sure. Hmm hmm hmm hmm hmm.

To be continued...
