Me: Look at my Big Brave Beautiful Boy. He is so handsome in his feathered hat.
Nell: Yes, David certainly has style.
Me: But I thought Robin Woof wore green.
Nell: That’s David’s pre-show hat.
Me: Oh, I see. Do I have to wear more than one?
Nell: No, of course not. David has several hats. He is the star of the show and his fans expect it.
Me: Well, they certainly seem to be gathering. When I looked outside just now the garden was full.
Nell: Those are not fans they are the Merry Dogs. There seem to be hundreds of them and half of them aren’t even dogs.
Me: I wondered why those rabbits were wearing green. What about the other actors?
Nell: Knitwear Wolf is escorting Myfanwy and the Welsh corgi choir down to the beach. He is worried about a Beefy attack.
Me: Has there been any sign of them?
Nell: The usual mackerel and a few stale baguettes but nothing major. Now, most of the cast are getting a lift to the beach with the large beasts.
Me: I presume you mean Alejandro, Olive and Monty.
Nell: Yes. Now I thought the rest of us could walk down there together. Safety in numbers. David and Harriet will lead the way as Robin Woof and Will Scarlet.
Me: Can I start the singing?
Nell: I don’t see why not.
Me: ‘Robin Woof, Robin Woof in his feathered hat.
Robin Woof, Robin Woof and his friend The Cat.
Beefies are bad, Reindeer are good,
Robin Woof, Robin Woof, Robin Woof’
Nell: Stop. You can’t sing that.
Me: Why not?
Nell: Didn’t you read the Terms and Conditions?
Me: I didn’t know I had a contract.
Nell: Number one: Don’t bait a Beefy.
Me: Of course. Sorry.
