The Mole and the Construction Worker get together for a series of games – “Rock, Paper, Scissors,” “Guess What Animal I Am” and “Hide and Seek.” Frustratingly for the Mole, the Construction Worker always fights him to a draw by simply doing nothing at all.

An itinerant preacher fails to engage a college rabble in a game of “Follow the Leader,” as his sermons are met with riotous laughter. Finally, a bizarre eye creature stares, blinks and drools its way through a discussion of cognitive psychology.
