Looks very smart.

Shut up! We're sick

with their stench!




The cat's just choked

itself to death on them!

I don't care if I never

see another lupine again!

Why don't you go out

and steal something useful?

Like what?

Like gold and silver

and clothes

and wood and jewels--

Hang on,

I'll get a piece of paper.

In this picture,

there are 40 people.

None of them can be seen.

We hope to show you

how not to be seen.

This is mr. E.R. Bradshaw

of Napier Court,

Black Lion Road, Southeast 5.

He cannot be seen.

Now, I'm going

to ask him to stand up.

Mr. Bradshaw, will you

stand up, please?


This demonstrates the value

of not being seen.

In this picture, we cannot

see mrs. B.J. Smegma

of 13, The Crescent, Belmont.

Mrs. Smegma, will you

stand up, please?


This is mr. Nesbitt

of Harlow New Town.

Mr. Nesbitt, will you

stand up, please?

Mr. Nesbitt has learned

the first lesson

of not being seen--

Not to stand up.

However, he has chosen

a very obvious piece of cover.

Mr. E.V. Lambert

of Homeleigh,

The Burrows, Oswestry,

has presented us with a poser.

We do not know

which bush he is behind,

but we can soon find out.


Yes, it was

the middle one.

[orchestra plays Blue Danube]

Oh, no, not again.

Oh, come on.

Stand and deliver again!

Your money, your jewellery,

your--hang on.

"Your clothes, your snuff,

"your ornaments,

your glassware,

"your pussycats...

Don't say anything

about the lupines.

Your watches, your lace,

your spittoons..."
