When we met the Queen


'And you're sure it was her?' asked Lefty.

Hooky tapped once.

'It couldn't be!' bleated Flossie.

Hooky tapped four times.

'Well maybe it could be then!' conceded Flossie.

'How tall was she?' asked Lefty.

Hooky tapped seven times.

'And how wide was she?' asked Lefty.

Hooky tapped seven times.

'She could do with loosing a few pounds,' remarked Lefty.

'It's all the banquets,' said Flossie.

'Now,' asked Lefty, 'how regal was she?'

Hooky tapped three hundred and thirty seven times.

'How regal?' exclaimed Flossie.

And Hooky tapped three hundred and thirty seven times.....again.

'It must be her!' said Flossie.

'And she won't be alone,' added Lefty.

'Right!' said Flossie. 'There's no time to lose. We'll have to move quickly.'

'Not sure we can,' replied Lefty.

'Why not?' asked Flossie.

And Lefty pointed at Slightly Threatening Dave's pointy sword.

'He won't be able to run with it,' said Lefty.

'OK!' replied Flossie. 'Then we'll have to move as fast as we possibly can but all within the context of current health and safety legislation regarding pointy swords.'

And so that it what they did.
