News, but not the serious kind
Tie me to the plank, Frank!
Okay lads, it’s time we make our protest heard by those bloody politicians. They can’t raise our university tuition and get away with it!
Blimey, Nigel, you don’t mean… Not the plank!
Yes. You fellows know the drill. Bring me a long wooden plank and a rope. And I need some really stupid chap, stripped naked.
By naked you mean wearing shoes and socks, right, Nigel?
Of course, Chauncey! We ARE British people, after all!
I say, Nigel, you’re really going through with this whole plank thing? The rope, the red loin cloth, the stupid tattoos, the blond wig?
Yes, Chauncey! As I said, we ARE British people! Tie those knots really well, so what’s-his-name can’t escape.
I believe he’s called Lamar.
Well, hurry up and finish straight away. We’re supposed to get a foot of snow tonight, so work smartly! We’ll come back when the snow melts in a fortnight, Lamar!
