    "The Village Has Got Talent"

     “What did you think of the three silly twerps?”
    “You mean the trick being there's only two of them?”
    “Well they made me laugh!”
    “And Ninety-nine's escapologist act, what did he call himself?”
    “Harry Houdini. Rumour has it he's a member of the Escape Committee.”
    “Is he still trying to get out of those handcuffs?”
    “Yes. I think he's going for the's been three hours twenty-two minutes so far!”
    “Well if he can't escape those handcuffs..........what price The Village?”
    “I thought the Magician was good.”
    “Yes. It's just a pity about the Guillotine illusion.”
    “Yes. I understand the doctor is trying to stitch it back on!”
    “And Number fifty-one, the human cannon ball?”
    'We got a post card from him yesterday. He sends his regards from.......well he doesn't actually say where he is!”

    “There's always Number Thirteen, the human inferno!”
    “He's still in hospital!”
    “Number Ninety-Three, the ex-opera singer?”
    “Yes, what a wonderful.......noise she makes!”
    “Number Forty-Eight, he sang Sonny Boy beautifully.”
    “I found it a bit wearing, certainly after Eight, Thirty-Three, Eighty-Six, and Sixty-Two had sung the same song.”
    “Well there's always Baldrick!”
    “Baldrick, we're not supposed to use names!”
    “Oh, you mean the Slug balancing act!”
    “I've got him down as being an impressionist.”
    “Charlie Chaplin, wasn't it?”
    “Either way, we could get the Slug some sort of sparkly costume...........All agreed? Good.”
