[THEME SONG BEGINS]
>>RACHEL: Rise and shine, it’s time for Chompers, your morning and night toothbrushing show.
Start brushing on the top of your mouth on one side, and but don’t brush too hard.
>>KIDS: 3, 2, 1 brush!
It’s Sports Week, and today, making you laugh with our sporty jokes is our ….. GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL!
>>RACHEL: Here’s your first one:
Why did the golfer have to buy a new shirt?
>>RACHEL: Because he got a hole in one.
>>RACHEL: In golf, a “hole is one” is what they call it when a golfer hits his ball into the hole with just one shot. It’s the most difficult shot for a golfer to get, and it almost never happens!
Switch to the other side of the top of your mouth, and brush the inside, outside and chewing side of each tooth.
>>RACHEL: In golf, players hit balls using sticks called CLUBS. There are LOTS of different types of clubs, and each one is used for hitting the ball in a different way. Some clubs are useful for hitting the ball really far…
>>RACHEL: -some clubs are used for getting the ball out of sand, and some clubs are good for close shots where you want to hit the ball verrrrrrrrrrry gently.
Switch to the bottom of your mouth…
>>RACHEL: -and brush the molars in the way back.
Here’s another joke:
Why did the coach call the basketball player cheap?
>>RACHEL: Because all she did was take free throws.
>>RACHEL: In basketball, free throws are a special kind of shot that players get to take if they’ve been fouled.
>>RACHEL: A foul is when someone breaks the rules, like pushing or hurting another player
>>RACHEL: Switch to the other side of the bottom of your mouth…
>>RACHEL: -and brush your front teeth too.
When a basketball player tries for a free throw, they have to stand behind a line on the floor called the free throw line. No other player can mess with them while they try to take the shot and if they make it, their team gets 1 point.
