kittin 2 / 3

narrator: king dave ruled his kingdom with a fist of steel
amos: and it was very shiny, being the stainless kind of steel that is brewed in Sweden
jj: and so it was that many magpies came to roost in the court of the king
magpie 1: *caw, caw*
dr moose: *meow*
dave: and so it was that wise king dave became very irritated because of the incessant cawing
magpie 2: *caw, caw*
dr moose: *meow*
jj: and dr moose was not very happy either
amos: nor was jeremy-jeremy
dave: nor amos
all: [collective sigh]
[pause for thought]
narrator: at this point the narrator recovered the story
jj: but not for long...
amos: ...because who could have known that talking about oneself in third person could be so much fun?
dave: not wise king dave, for one
dr moose: *meow*
jj: nor dr moose
amos: nor jeremy-jeremy
dave: nor wise king...
narrator: [interrupting rather vivaciously] AHA! already said that, haven't you?
dave: damn
narrator: that's why i'm narrator, and you're king
dave: and a wise king, too
amos: aye, king dave was a wise king, a good king, a clever king
jj: and he knew how to have a laugh
dave: [to demonstrate] ho-ho-ho
jj: [aside] actually dave, that was rather stilted
dave: oh. er... well, i'll practice
narrator: ...and so it was that a clumsy and ignorant cast ruined the telling of the GREAT and DRAMATIC MAGPIE TALE, which had to be postponed for... ANOTHER EPISODE
