In Memoriam Thomas Hardy (1928)

First Yokel: That Thomas Hardy's still dead then.

Second Yokel: Aye, as we all shall be.

1Y: Shall us hie to the Quiet 'Ooman and het us a quart of Wildeve's Best into our insides?

2Y: Wi' all my heart.

1Y: And shall us then drag our carcasses to Mixen Lane, there to join the wold boys of the Peter's Finger?

2Y: Wi' all my heart.

1Y: And shall us then try the taste of the ale at the Dree Mariners?

2Y: Nay, Neddy Chalcombe. For the Dree Mariners is now an office suite.

1Y: Then shall us put on our clean smock-frocks and hie us to the Kings Arms?

2Y: Nay, for the Kings Arms has been closed these two years and in need of major development.

1Y: All right then. Nandos?

2Y Yeah, all right.
