Hey Fred Schneider Warm-Up

The variation I was taught by someone (I completely forget who) and now use adds in a justification aspect to it:

Group chant: “Hey, Fred Schneider, what are you doing?”
Performer A: “I’m learning to knit Christmas sweaters.”
Group chant: “Hey, Fred Schneider, why are you doing that?”
Performer B: “This is how I express my artistic side.”
Group chant: “Hey, Fred Schneider, what are you doing?”
Performer B: (Whole new what)
Group chant: “Hey, Fred Schneider, why are you doing that?”
Performer C: (A why to B’s what)

This has always been one of my favourite warm-ups, and adding the justification makes it even better.
