Stealing, or sharing?

Nell: I expect the lovely young couple were delighted to have Frank back.

Me: Yes. They were. Dave isn’t very happy, though. He loved Frankie so much.

Nell: He will be back to visit no doubt. Bristol isn’t too far away.

Me: Yes, that’s what I told him but after losing Charlie he is vulnerable.

Nell: The loss of Charlie has shaken us all.

Me: Of course it has. How are you?

Nell: Coping. I noticed the Beefies have managed to get themselves on to the local television news again.

Me: What have they done now?

Nell: Stealing. They are always badly behaved during holiday times and it was half term.

Me: So what happened?

Nell: One poor woman only managed a lick of her ice cream before a Beefy took it.

Me: How rude.

Nell: Apparently it wasn’t being rude, it was simply wanting to share. The reporter decided to try and examine the Beefy’s motives by setting it a test.

Me: What did he do?

Nell: He offered the Beefy the choice of a fresh untouched pasty, or one that someone had been eating.

Me: Which one did it choose?

Nell: The half eaten one of course.

Me: Why?

Nell: Beefies like to steal from people. They want you to be upset and shocked.

Me: Yes.

Nell: The reporter kept saying Beefies are influenced by our food choices and just want to join in. Stuff and nonsense.

Me: It sounds unlikely. Beefies don’t care about anyone.

Nell: Quite. Personally, I wouldn’t be at all surprised if the reporter wasn’t in their pay.

Me: Stranger things have happened.

Nell: It was a penguin, so it’s a distinct possibility.

Me: Are penguins easily bribed, then?

Nell: No, they are sea birds. Honestly, do try and keep up.

Me: Yes. Sorry.
