Cocklecarrot: But this horse has no tail. I thought the whole case was about a length of twill to cover the tail ?
First Dwarf; M'worship, it is a guinea-horse.
Second Dwarf: Yes, your grace. If you hold it up by its tail, its head drops off.
Third Dwarf: With a bang, your ludship.
Fourth Dwarf: We have a bicycle, too. And that has no tail, either.
Fifth Dwarf: It's a guinea-bicycle.
Sixth Dwarf; The handlebars are made of lard, as a precaution.
Cocklecarrot (savagely): Against what?
Chorus of Dwarfs: Burglary, sire.
Cocklecarrot (groaning): What in Heaven's name is all this nonsense about?
Mr. Holley-Gander: I confess, m'lud, the case is developing along unexpected lines.
