>> Rachel: Good morning! It’s time for Chompers, your morning and night toothbrushing show.
Pick a side on the top of your mouth, and but don’t brush too hard!
>> Kids: 3, 2, 1 brush!
>> Rachel: It’s Bug Week on Chompers and today jumping for joy like a flea (SFX BOING) … with jokes! Ready? Here we go!
>> Rachel: What did the stink bug ask for for her birthday?
>> Kid: What?
>> Rachel: Perfume!
>> Kids: EEEWWW!
>> Rachel: Stink bugs release a stinky smell when they’re scared -- it helps keep bigger bugs and birds from eating them!
Switch your brushing to the other side of the top of your mouth, and make sure to brush the inside, outside and chewing side of each tooth.
>> Rachel: Ready for another joke?
>> KIDS: YES!
>> Rachel: What’s an entomologists favorite band?
>> Kids: What is it?!
>> Rachel: The Beatles.
ENTOMOLOGIST -- Is a fancy way of saying a scientist who studies insects. So if you like learning about bugs, maybe you can be an entomologist when you grow up!
Switch your brushing to the bottom of your mouth (SFX), and give your tongue a brush too.
>> Rachel: Ok, here comes another joke!
>> ZAC: Who’s there?
>> RACHEL: Flea!
>> ZAC: Flea who?
>> RACHEL: No … flea quickly! A stink bug is headed this way!
Remember stink bugs from our first joke? Their stinky smell might make you want to FLEA -- get it?! A FLEA is a type of insect, But the word FLEE also means to run away! So if you see a flea, you might want to FLEE!
Switch to the other side of the bottom of your mouth, and make sure to brush the molars in the waaaay back.
Remember how fleas are really good jumpers? They have to be, because they can’t fly! Instead they jump around to get where they’re going.
I hate to say it but it’s time for us to flee -- you’re all done brushing your teeth! That’s it for Chompers today, but come back tonight for more jokes and make sure to rinse with water before you…
>> Kids: 3 2 1 SPIT!
