Bala Singh, Banta Singh, and Ghanta Singh escape a burning building by climbing to the roof. The Firemen are on the street below, holding a blanket for them to jump into. The firemen yell to the Santa, ‘Jump! Jump! It’s your only chance to survive!’
Bala jumps and SWISH! The firemen yank the blanket away… Bala slams into the sidewalk like a tomato.
‘C’mon! Jump! You gotta jump!’ say the firemen to the Banta. ‘Oh no! You’re gonna pull the blanket away!’ says Banta. ‘No! We like you! Just jump!’
‘OK’ says Bala and jumps.
SWISH! The firemen yank the blanket away, and he’s flattened on the pavement like a pancake.
Finally, Ghanta steps to the edge of the roof. Again, the firemen yell ‘Jump! You have to jump!’
‘No way! You’re just gonna pull the blanket away!’ yelled Ghanta.
‘No! Really! You have to jump! We won’t pull the blanket away!’
‘Look,’ Ghanta Singh says, ‘nothing you say is gonna convince me that you’re not gonna pull the blanket away! So what I want you to do is put the blanket down, and back away from it…’
