When is a trunk not a trunk?
'Hopeless!' said Captain Bill, 'absolutely hopeless!'
'It'll do,' said Cyril.
'It's a hose pipe!' mooed Captain Bill, 'you could at least have taken the sprinkler off the end!'
'Didn't quite have the time for that,' replied Cyril.
'Why not?' asked Captain Bill.
'No reason,' replied Cyril.
'IT'S STOLEN!' mooed Captain Bill.
'Borrowed,' corrected Cyril.
'Oh udders!' said Captain Bill.
'You worry too much,' said Cyril.
'Well of course I worry!' replied Captain Bill, 'I can see it now, "sorry m'lud, only we stole the hose pipe because we needed to impersonate an elephant."'
'I'm feeling peckish,' said Cyril, who felt that the conversation should be moved along.
'And that's news is it?' asked Captain Bill.
'There's a lady over there!' said Cyril.
'What about her?' asked Captain Bill.
'She's got a cake!' said Cyril.
'No!' hissed Captain Bill,'no, no, no! We don't move from this spot. Two hours we've got to stand here. Cyril! No!...Cyril, don't you dare move...I'm warning you..this is your Captain speaking....take us back......CYRILLLLLLLL!!!'
