What, all that? I'll get writer's cramp.

Oh, all right.

I say, John,

that letter about pig clubs has to come out.

What? The paper goes to bed in five minutes.

I know, but the chief's got a pig club himself.

Too bad.

Well, what have we got instead?

Here, Bill, give me the WPB.

No.

No. Not that one.

Ah. Here's something. I think this'll do.

It's from that chap Huggett.

He wants a lido for a war memorial.

Fine. Nobody cares about that. Bung it in.

- Is that The Advertiser?

- Yes. It's in!

- Then give it here.

- "Sir...

in view of the discussion now proceeding in

the council as to the nature of the war memorial,

may I suggest that you... "

"Turn to page four, column three. "

What's that? Here, hand it over.

Column three. Oh, yes.

".. that it should take the form

of a pleasure garden and lido. "

- Well, go on.

- Well, that's all.

Why, rubbish!

That's only the beginning.

There you are.

".. take the form of a pleasure garden and lido.

'A garden is a lovesome thing, God wot!'

Yours faithfully, J Huggett. "

Why, you little...! I'll skin that child.

- What for, dear?

- She's cut out the best bits in my letter.

Oh, she never.

She copied it all out. I saw her myself.

- I tell you...

- I bet they blue-pencilled it.

Short of space - you know.

The editor

didn't put in that lovesome-god-wottery.

ETHEL:
No, dear. That was me.

- You?

Well, you were so keen on a quotation,

and I thought it was so pretty.

And you know -

literary, if you know what I mean.

- Literary?

- Well, the editor must have thought so,

or he'd have cut that bit out with the rest.

I can't think of any other man in Strutham

who has his breakfast mucked up more than me.

I'd like to give that editor a piece of my mind.

- I'd like to give that editor a piece of my mind.
