Players: A fine lady, her husband, a butler and a baker.
The lady and her husband are sitting at the table. The man rings a bell. A butler appears with breakfast on a tray. He serves coffee and bread buns. The lady and the man pour themselves a coffee and take a hearty bite of their bread buns. The lady suddenly screeches: "Yuk" and shakes herself. She has bitten into something in her bread bun which does not belong there. (A small prune without a stone is “built” into the bread bun beforehand.) She breaks up the bread bun and shows the black thing to her husband. "A beetle!" he exclaims disgustedly. He bangs on the butler bell. When he appears, the man shows him the bread bun.
The butler is shocked. He pulls the thing out with his fingertips. "A beetle!" he says disgustedly and places it on a plate. The man points (with gestures), that he should fetch the baker. The butler runs off and comes a short while later. He is pulling the baker along behind him. Once he arrives in the living room he pulls away from the butler and goes towards the man with a confident walk. The man holds the bread bun in his hand, points to the bun and to the beetle on the plate.
"A beetle!" says the lady accusingly,
"A beetle!" says the butler threateningly.
"A beetle!" says the man shaken.
The baker grabs the beetle. He shakes his head furiously, suddenly sticks the beetle in his mouth and starts chewing powerfully.
"But!" shouts the lady.
"But!" shouts the man.
"But!" shouts the butler.
The baker: "A raisin!" he says and swallows the thing
