Bells

“Is it me or are bells ringing?”

“You’re in a mental institution. What do you think?… Besides, they aren’t ringing, they’re tolling.”

“You’re both wrong. They’re knelling.”

“Is that even a word? No matter. They’re pealing.”

“By God, you’re right. The war’s over.”

“They’d be ringing out wildly if the war were over.”

“It’s the top of the hour, you fools.”

“Oh, thirty o’clock is it, Mr. Know-It-All?”

“My radiator sounds better than that cacophony.”

“Somebody let the hunchback get his hands on the rope again.”

“The gates are open.”

“Till the bells stop. Off we go, then.”

  7. I really, really like this. It has a whiff of Monty Python about it!

  8. Don’t know why but reminds me of

    “Windy today isn’t it?”

    “No, it’s Thursday.”

    “Me too. I’ll put the kettle on…”

    Bonkers, but great.
