Sheep Vs Queen
'Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Etcetera, etcetera,' said Flossie.
'And revenge and death?' asked Lefty.
'Indeed! Indeed!' replied Flossie. 'Definately revenge and death. Basically very much the same speech as last time but in a more appropriate setting as we now seem to have found someone to take revenge upon.'

'Your wish,' replied Flossie, 'is our command! After her lads!'
And the flock rushed in.
And the door slammed closed behind them.
