An absurdist attempt to distract the audience while getting the salt off the stage from the previous piece (q.v. Puberty Shriek, Episode 10)."Good Housekeeper Schweik" IS COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL AND MAY NOT BE DOWNLOADED, TRANSMITTED, PRINTED OR PERFORMED WITHOUT THE EXPRESS PERMISSION OF THE AUTHOR
Here, three audience members put on antlers and were supposed to move around through the audience and on the stage acting like deer--pawing and (in my imagination) maybe trying to nibble bark off people in the seats. We hear a vacuum cleaner start and a guy in a German WW1 uniform comes out and sweeps up the salt while the deer continue being deer. Then when the salt is swept up, the deer race off stage and the soldier says "Ze Deeer ist Terrrrible today!" and black out.
Anyway--it was weird and kind of funny to watch. More funny
than just coming out with a broom and dust pan after the first
piece, and I got someone else to clean up my mess, which was the
whole point, I guess...that and get my genuine WW1 German helmet
