Gotta do the "Golden Arm":
Build it up as you will, the hero/thief/statue/king/queen/...
whose golden arm is the pride and joy/unique property/magical whatsis/...
that get's stolen, and he (she?) was desolate/enraged/unconsolable/...
asking "Who has my Golden Arm?" everywhere
wandering the land (repeat to appropriate length from say China to India to Turkey to Greece to Spain to Cuba to Alabama ...)
for years/decades/centuries/millenia/... (specify along with choice of place as you will),
optional here to add in carnage as the bereft one-armed figure becomes increasingly aggressive/violent/outrageous/...
until just recently when reported in nearest state/city/town/neighborhood/park/woods/... (pick up from earlier trajectory, and repeat narrowing as needed to just around the corner),
ever moaning/groaning/weeping/crying/whispering "Who has my Golden Arm?"
and when you've got them on the edge of their rocks
grab the nearest reasonably strong-charactered camper (careful whom you sit next to) while loudly proclaiming/yelling/shrieking/screaming/...
Most effective of course if begun just at dusk and not finished until pretty dark,
begun with the fire starting to diminish, down to coals by the finish,
etc. as you will.
Dramatic voicing requisite of course.
Now why can't I remember any of the many others, it's only been 55 years....
