Beaver and Steve are walking through the forest. Beaver looks worried.
Beaver: "We're lost again! And we don't have any food!"
Steve: "Don't worry! The forest is full of food - if you know where to look for it!"
Steve licks a branch with lichen growing on it.
Steve: "For instance, the lichen that grows on these apple trees is an excellent source of zinc."
Beaver looks at Steve as he picks the leaves of a branch.
Steve: "And these OW! nettle leaves OW! can be boiled down into a tasteless nutritive OW! broth."
Steve: "Of course, OW! an expert woodsman like me will hardly get stung at all. OW!"
Steve is in front of hornet hive, eating them and getting stung.
Steve: "And these honey hornets are full of protein! Mmm-mmm!"
Beaver reaches for a hamburger on a hamburger tree while Steve stands in front of a hot dog bush.
Beaver: "You're right, Steve! The woods are full of food if you know where to look... like these hamburgers from this hamburger tree!"
Steve stops Beaver.
Steve: "That's an easy mistake to make, Beaver! But i'm afraid an expert woodsman knows that those hamburgers are completely inedible."
Beaver looks at the hamburger, surprised.
Beaver: "Oh dear! Why?"
Steve is taking the hamburger carefully.
Steve: "Because they contain..."
Stever reveals two pickles inside the hamburger
Beaver looks at Steve in disbelief.
Stever shows the two pickles in the hamburger, again.
Steve: "POISONED PICKLES!"
