           (A little girl walks onstage.  This can be done with a real younger actor, or an older actor playing a young girl.  She is holding- you might have guessed from the title - a frying pan.)

(A little shy at first) Hi, I didn't realize there would be so many people in the audience.  I can't see the people in your homes, so I'm not scared, but all of you.....wow!

I just wanted to say that I have always wanted to be on television - my whole life.  And although I look young, I am actually 76 years old.

Why do I look so young?  Because I tell the truth.  My Momma taught me to never tell a lie....or else I would get hit with ......(says it with reverence)...the frying pan of truth.

But Momma never hit me - with anything.  So, one day, when I got older, I asked her what she meant, and she said I would figure it out.

So now, here I am, 76, and I have just figured it out.  Everyone has a purpose in life.  It took me all this time to figure out that....... I am the person who has to make sure that others tell the truth.  It is my duty, my responsibility.  My honor.

          (Holds up the frying pan)

And this is .....the frying pan of truth.

           (She turns to leave, stops, looks back)

And since it is an election year, I am here to make sure that all the politicians know what is about to happen to them........

          (She swings the pan around,exits.....we can only hope that the frying pan of truth will prevail.)
