Fido’s head

Me: How lovely. You are all out in the sunshine.

Nell: We are visiting the scene of the crime.

Me: Oh no. What happened? Why does Harriet look so worried?

Nell: Even you should have noticed the victim.

Me: Has someone been hurt?

Nell: Fido is missing his head.

Me: Oh dear. Maybe it was an accident.

Nell: Unlikely.

Me: Tony the postman sometimes closes the gate with a bang. Fido used to sit by the gate.

Nell: It was not Tony.

Me: Have you got any leads?

Nell: Yes.

Me: Apart from your own leads of course.

Nell: Good grief.

Me: That was quite a good joke, Nell.

Nell: It is not a laughing matter. We have a large number of suspects and questioning will begin shortly.

Me: It sounds serious. Heads will probably roll.

Nell: Not funny. We are starting with you. Follow me please.

Me: Sorry.
