One day the Lawd of the Dawks felt very hungry.
But the Great Dawk wasn't like you or me. We eat food and drink gin. Whereas the Dawk subsisted on attention, which he liked to wash down with the psychic energy he could extract from howls of rage.
So the Dawk decided to say something outrageous, yet which he reckoned he could logically defend. He didn't worry about the people who could rightly be very offended, because Dawks are attention-seeking toads. And three hours later he wasn't hungry any more.
