How does it work?

One person starts in the middle performing some action. Any person may step into the middle of the circle and ask, "What are you doing?" The person in the middle responds with a different, unrelated action and then leaves. As always, something funny is generally preferred. The person who asked the question then must stay in the middle and mime whatever the previous person said they were doing. Play continues until it gets boring.

Traditionally (or maybe not), the first action is "digging a hole."
