'But 'ow does me buying 150 clockwork chickens 'elp me run a vineyard?' asked Camille.
'Many, badly informed, people would ask exactly the same question,' replied Cyril.

'They cost almost nothing to run,' continued Cyril.

'Which is where you'd be making a serious error,' said Cyril.
'I've invested everything I have into steam driven quail,' mooed Annie.
'And have you regretted it?' asked Cyril.

'And my horns are shinier after just 3 treatments,' added Annie.
'It just keeps getting better!' said Cyril.
'But ma 'orns don't come into it,' replied Camille. 'I need 'elp with ma grapes.'

'Then I'm giving it, like right now!' replied Camille.
'Then if you could kindly point me towards your very finest vintages?'
'Why do I 'ave a bad feeling about this?' said Camille.
