What was That? A Comedy about Camping

$5.50

George and Karen are going camping with a group of other people from their neighborhood next weekend and so tonight is a trial run for them. Sleeping under the stars, in their sleeping bags, playing silly campfire games – all in the name of camping. But Karen just isn’t ready and comes up with all sorts of reasons why they shouldn’t go:

It looks like rain
She hates owls
She keeps hearing noises – BEARS!
She can’t pee in a jumpsuit – and it’s likely she’ll go a few times in the night
The people they’re going with are not really campers, but a loose group of swingers ready to drag George (the only man going who still has a full head of hair) into the bushes!

When she finally jumps into George’s sleeping bag, he thinks she’s lost it. Is their practice camping trip ruined for good?
