Next thing we know, Earl and Joy are on a street with a sign that says, "Information on Sad African Orphans." They're handing out pamphlets that apparently say "Nine out of ten African orphans die every minute." An old woman asks if it's true, and Earl says Africa's hard on kids, what with the giant leeches and lack of speed limits. He is so educational and informative. The lady asks if they want money, and Joy says no. Earl tells us in voiceover that the first rule in scamming money is to look like you're not asking for money. Then Joy tells the lady if she has trouble sleeping tonight she can just send a check to the address on the back. The lady looks skeptical and walks off. Earl then voices over that the second rule is not to tell Randy it's a scam, because there's no better salesman than someone who believes in it. He's telling people passionately how the orphans' bellies are big, but it turns out they're just filled with air, and... nine more just died. He wants everyone to open their eyes and take a pamphlet.
They handed out a lot of pamphlets and even went down and got a P.O. (pronounced: "poe") box to make it look more official. Earl and Randy are playing Hungry Hungry Hippo when Joy comes in and tells them someone finally believed them, and sent them a $100 check! Randy's confused about why Joy and Earl get the money for the orphans, and Earl fesses up that this was a scam. Randy starts laughing, saying they really got him this time. He cried so much, and had nightmares. But he is so relieved and asks if there are really starving children in Africa. High-pitched Earl replies, "No."
Back in the present, Earl and Randy are going to see the guy who sent them the $100 check all those years ago. When they pull up to his house, I notice Earl's car still has the blue door that he gave back to its rightful owner a couple episodes ago. Or maybe he bought that guy a new blue door? I'll pretend that's what happened so that this doesn't have to be a glaring error in continuity. As they get out, Randy tells Earl he's going to write a book about barbecue sauces like one of their aunts did, but Earl says Randy doesn't know anything about barbecue sauces, and you have to know stuff to write a book. Randy says he could write a book about how non-food things taste, because "I have a curious tongue" -- and, oh! That could be the name of the book. I don't think that's a half-bad idea, Randy, no matter what Earl says.
