Embedded text or transcriptCurled Nostril Department : Haile Selassie: "What practical assistance have the honourable British sent us today?" Secretary : "Four letters in the Times; one expostulation by Mr. Lloyd George and one expression of disgust by Mr. Snowden Haile Selassie : "Good! Mussolini should surrender any time now." Unrest in Germany - The report that a schoolboy in Germany has been expelled for slandering Hitler has been followed by the arrest of an infant for deliberately calling him a bub-bub. Staff Talks (very secret) "No, nothing to report to Lord Beaverbrook yet. The boys have just got as far as concerting a plan to retreat according to."
The proposal to erect a monument to carrier pigeons that fell in the Great War is received without enthusiasm among unemployed ex-service pigeons in Trafalgar Square. They say they already have a monument, and will give the idea the bird. Culture in Crime Circles (see Police College exam. papers) : "No, constable, no! I must protest. There can be no comparison between the services rendered to the country by Disraeli and those by Gladstone. Now take the Disestablishment Bill of 1868", etc. etc.
Burglarious implements
Handspring by Col. Blimp : Gad, sir, Mussolini is right. There can be no negotiations until Geneva is moved to somewhere else.
