: : : : : : Now, now, Turkish Trader - I do hope that you will still be allowing the Huggy Merchant to be trading her wares. I see that you are knowledgeable of Edward Lytton's splendid quote
: : : : : : "Beneath the rule of men entirely great,
: : : : : : The pen is mightier than the sword"
: : : : : : and must therefore, be willing to allow a humble trader of words, wit and warmth to continue to do so........no?
: : : : : : Of course, you might want to stop that Yengeese Strumpet from trading HER particular wares - as I think that the genteel ladies of these parts are none to happy with her 'flaunting her goods'.... and for some reason Sheriff Twigg is not being particularly swift in dealing with this matter.
: : : : : : Yours
: : : : : : The Huggy Merchant
: : : : : Dear Huggy Merchant,
: : : : : Now then, I am not quite sure what action you anticipate against the Yengeese Strumpet. She has done nothing against the law, so far as I can see, and frankly, I rather fancy the lady's personality. How many settlements can boast a Tart With a Heart, after all? You have to admit, she's not about to present any competition for Doc M. Yes, indeed, I believe a kindly (not to mention attractive) strumpet will add a touch of class to our bawdy elements. I understand she is seeing a lot of Dweebie Day-Lewis, and goodness knows, if anybody could use a gentle influence, that boy can! He's going around looking downright placid lately.
: : : : : Sheriff Benton (Just Call Me Bent) Twigg
: : : :
: : : : Oh - man! I can't resist! Sheriff, would that be a placid or FLACID state that Dweebie is walking around in........
: : : : GnomeDome
: : : ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
: : : Let me ASSURE you, Sir Gnome, that there are no gentleman walking around the House of Hoo-Haa in a flaccid state! What are you trying to do, ruin a working girl's reputation?! He is in a very RELAXED state, is all. Anyway, this, of course, you would know, as don't think that I haven't seen you leaping up and down on your wee legs outside my parlour window!
: : : Yours seductively
: : : The Yengeese Strumpet
: : HEY! It's NOT what you think! I am just having fun on my wee trampoline!!! (Grunt, grunt *pushing trampoline closer to window)
: : GnomeDome
: Evenin', GnomeDome! Fine evenin' for bein' out and about, is it not? Ye look like ye're havin' jist a bit o' trouble pushing yer trampoline past those azalea bushes. Here, let me pick it up and put it where ye need it - - right over here next to the winder, ye say? All right - there ye are. Whoops! what's goin' on inside? Looks like some kind of meetin' takin' place. Er somethin'. Must be a meetin' o' very close fri'nds er relatives - lot o' huggin' and kissin' takin' place. Well, I'll be, if that is not Simon Girty in there passin' around a jug o' somethin'! Didn't know he had any close fri'nds livin' in town, but must be.
: Oh, hello, Miss Gaylee. I was hopin' to see you on yer way home from choir practice - somethin' I need to talk to ye about. What? What're we doin' here under the winder? Well, I just stopped to help the Gnome, and caught sight of some meetin' goin' on inside the house and was wonderin' what meetin' it might be. Ye say ye didn't know of any meetin's takin' place tonight? Well, hope it's not one ye're supposed to be attendin'. Why don't ye take a look and see who's there, so's ye'll have a better idee. Here, I'll make a place for ye beside me.
Thank you, She. This certainly is kind of you. I'm sure I didn't have any meetings down on my calendar for this evening, but - - - . OHHHHHHH, my GOODNESS! Well, I never! Just look at what's going on inside that house! Ssssssssh. It would never do to let folks know we were - - stop that leaping up and down, GnomeDome! I KNOW you were here first, but other folks have a right to see too, you know! Oh-oh, here comes Miss Marcia. Wait 'til she gets a gander at THIS! (giggle giggle) This'll strip the stripes off her skirt for sure!
(loud whisper and waving madly) MISS MARCIA, MISS MARCIA! COME ON OVER AND LOOK WHAT'S GOING ON. IT'LL FRIZZLE THE CURLS RIGHT OUT OF YOUR HAIR!
