Ladies and gentlemen, and Tiddles the cat

Kitty O'Shaunessy's been working in the Local Studies Library since Dan Leno was a lad. She's retiring next month so we're having a collection for her retirement present.

Imagine the consternation when it is discovered that the tin that had been labelled for this collection has been re-labelled by T.Aldous for the collection for to pay for the wine and nutes he bought the convalescent Warner. We now debate whether or not to carbon-date the fingerprints on the coins to determine which collection they were for.

Co-opting all available funds for the retirment seems the best idea.

And any further contributory vessles should be handed around surreptitiously, person to person, to avoid falling into the wrong hands.

And I alsways send my donation in an envelope as I put not my trust in tins.
