Using the magic circle, they show him what one looks like.
Cartoon A young man carrying a brown paper bag walks up to the bridgekeeper and asks him if he works there. The bridgekeeper orders the young man to show him whatever circles are in the bag, and to eat them.

Once the young man is granted permission to cross the bridge, however, he tells the bridgekeeper that he was merely trying to deliver the latter's groceries.
