"After the game we decided to see a play. The city is famous for its plays. We entered the theater. We had trouble finding just the right seats, AS . . .
. . . all the seats were already filled, SO . . .
. . . we sat on people's laps. We don't know why everyone decided to leave early, THOUGH. . .
. . . it might have been that the show was about cats. Who wants to see a show about cats? We left the theater.
And then the rats saw the sign, "Museum of Fine Arts". Rats don't read well. They insisted we go in BECAUSE . . . . . . they thought it said, "Museum of Fine Rats."
