>> Rachel: Good morning, it’s time for Chompers, your twice-daily toothbrushing show.
Start brushing on the top of your mouth. Pick a side, and brush in little circles all the way around each tooth
>> Kids: 3, 2, 1 brush!
>> Rachel: It’s earth week and today we have some jokes that we hope you’re gonna LAVA!
Here’s your first one:
What did the compost heap say to the trash can?
>> Kids: What did they say?
>> Rachel: What a waste!
Switch your brushing to the other side of the top of your mouth, and brush the molars in the back too.
Here’s another joke:
Why did the environmentalist’s wife take him to the doctor?
>> KIDS: WHY?
>> Rachel: Because he was going green!
Going green doesn’t mean that your skin is turning green! Going green means that you do things that are good for the environment. Things like recycling your cookie box and turning off the water when you brush your teeth after eating those cookies.
Switch to the bottom of your mouth, and brush the inside, outside and chewing side of each tooth.
Ok, here’s another one.
Why do barbers make good environmentalists?
>> Kids: Why?
>> Rachel: They’re always trying to SHAVE the environment!
A barber shaves... beards. An environmentalist is someone who works hard at SAVING the environment from human pollution. An environmentalist is like a conservationist. They both want to protect all the living things and resources on earth.
Switch to the other side of the bottom of your mouth, but don’t brush too hard.
Ok here’s one last joke:
What do you call a talkative environmentalist?
>> KIDS: WHAT?
>> Rachel: A con-ver-sational con-ser-vationist.
Phew! Say that ten times fast... conversational conservationist, conversational conservationist...
That’s it for Chompers today, but if you need more silly jokes, come back tonight. Until then, rinse with water before you…
>> Kids: 3, 2, 1 spit!
