When penguins own hair dryers
'Madness!' mooed Captain Bill.
'Well I did try to warn you,' replied Norma. 'I thought they'd have trouble stopping.'
'They could have killed someone,' said Captain Bill, '...me in particular!'
'Oh no!' replied Norma. 'They wouldn't have done that...their time wouldn't have counted if they'd killed someone...it's in the rules.'
'That's a fine comfort,' said Captain Bill.
'Well no harm done really,' replied Norma, 'and look I've managed to find a towel for you.'
'Thanks,' said Captain Bill.
'And I think we'd better have a look at that hat of yours as well,'
'It's all soggy,' said Captain Bill.
'There, there,' replied Norma, 'not to worry, it'll dry, although I think we aught to do that somewhere else. I'm really not sure that Geraldine should be using a dryer down on the beach.'
'And the Octopus?' asked Captain Bill.
'All in good time,' said Norma.
