Cyril the bovine you can trust!


'Afternoon!' said Flossie.

'Afternoon!' said Cyril.


'Busy?' asked Flossie.


Cyril looked around him.

'Not really,' he replied.

'See you've got some crowns,' continued Flossie.

'Mmm,' said Cyril.

'Want to buy another?' asked Flossie.

Cyril thought for a while.

'Not really,' he said. 'To tell you the truth...I should never have bought the others.'

'Oh!' said Flossie.

'I'm a fool to myself really,' replied Cyril. 'I went a bit...crown mad. I had this idea I could corner the market. I simply had no idea how many royal type personages there are out there.'

'One more wouldn't hurt though,' suggested Flossie. 'Make a nice collection.'

'True!' replied Cyril.

'And it's a good one!' added Flossie.

'Wellllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll?' said Cyril.

'Go on!' said Flossie.

'Problem is,' replied Cyril. '.....................Money!'

'In what way?' asked Flossie.

'I've run out of it,' replied Cyril.

'Oh!' said Flossie.

'..................................................Tell you what though,' replied Cyril, 'could go swapsies?'

'Swapsies?' bleated Flossie.

'Mmm,' replied Cyril. 

'With what?' asked Flossie.

'............................................................Come and have a look,' said Cyril.

I can see that Lefty has he negotiating face on - not a woolly pirate sheep to be messed with obviously but then he is dealing with the unchallenged master of all things vendor-able (nick-able, plunder-able etc etc).
