RING RING RING!
Hear Ye Hear Ye Hear Ye!
COME ONE COME ALL!
LOTMLAND'S Newest and one of the most fear - uh... ahhmmm.... uh.... I meant RESPECT not fear.... uhmmm...
LOTMLand's newest and one of the most fe...uh! ah! once again, I meant RESPECTED... resident, Her Highness The Publicant (aka Tax Collector) has received a trade-off offer from The Great and Terrible EdictIssuer... who has offered... all on her own...without any pressure on the part of the Publicant whatsoever....
HER FIRST BORN to the Publicant in lieu of lifelong servitude to the Crown for dire tax delinquency.
Being a very careful and meticulous record keeper and soul... uh! no, I meant tax collector, The Publicant wants the many witnesses to this publicly issued offer, to step forward and place their John Hancock prominently in the middle of this parchment.
However... there is one caveat!
This Olde and Humble TowneCrier, well aware of the fact that TGAT Edict Issuer is also the lawfully elected righteous Queen of the realm, fears thusly:
The Queen has been AWOL for the longest of times. Might it be that there is something sinister going on? Might it be that... and I am risking my neck by crying out aloud about my suspicion, and right here in the middle of the Towne Square... but might it be that
The Publicant's agents have kidnapped said Queen... and htis offer of the First Borne is only a veil of smoke to pull the wool over our smart eagle-visioned eyes????
Opinions accepted. Donations of buckets to keep the TC's blood pouring from the neck of her chopped off head, neat and collected, are accepted, too.
