(There is a lady bug next to Ignatz and Krazy.)
Krazy: See that bug, 'Ignatz'?
Krazy: She's a wery wery gullable person she is too.
Ignatz: How so?
Krazy: Well, you just say to her, "Lady bug', 'Lady bug', fly away home. Your house is on fire and your children are alone'.
She'll believe you-
(Ignatz turns to face the bug, as Krazy walks away, contented.)
Ignatz: Ladybug ladybug fly away home. Your house is on fire your children are alone.
(The Ladybug spreads her wings in outrage. Ignatz jumps.)
Ladybug: Children!!! Saay, what do you mean insulting a respectable spinster, and what's more I have no house in this town. I'm a stranger here, you bald face gazooni!
(Ignatz picks up a brick and readies to fire it at Krazy.)
Ignatz: Krazy Kat, Krazy Kat, fly away from home.
Krazy: Li'l heedin, he thinks I'm a lady-bug.
