Oh, I agree, but I don't think he *points to tentacles trying to grab MWBailey* sees it that way.

Though it's past lunch-time now I'd be glad to have some Calamari.

*grills latest contribution to the picnic and passes it round. Starts to clean and pack up stove. Looks into empty Cablis bottle, shrugs and hurls it in the approxomite direction of another tentacle creeping across the floor...

"How many b****y arms has that thing got for goodness sake? They seem to be growing faster than I can cook them! Now, what did Ms.Adler just say - something about Pingu was it? Come on, it was only on the previous page, it might be important. She, speaking the secret incantation, makes it a Not-So-Secret-Incantation which is the kind of thing this Not-So-Secret-Society really excels at. What was it again? 'Pingu muggle wnaph Char too loo Riley wagger nagger fatang'??

We could try waking her up to ask her. She might be slightly more intelligible then. So has anybody got any smelling-salts, or something? Whoops, somebody get that tentacle, would you - I'm sure that's not how she'd like to be woken up...

*hefts the still-twitching Miss Adler onto the oak table furthest from the window, out of the way of both the impromptu field-kitchen and the increasingly belligerent sock-puppet*

I say, is that a sock puppet? Oh! Calamari! Is there any left?

"Well, I don't really think that the end can be assessed as of itself as being the end because what does the end feel like? It's like saying when you try to extrapolate the end of the universe, you say, if the universe is indeed infinite, then how - what does that mean? How far is all the way, and then if it stops, what's stopping it, and what's behind what's stopping it? So, what's the end, you know, is my question to you."

Well, she hasn't said it again, but as her head was behind me all I could make out was something about "something something To the Loo Really" then something about "want to 'ftang'"... is that one of those terms ladies use when they have  to... you know...?
That's why I put her down there - just in case she... well, that's a bit too Continental, even for me.

Anybody got any ideas to wake her up?

"Maybe these might do the trick?"

Cubinoid brandishes two large, sparking metal clips with wooden handles. They are connected to a large machine with a spinning disc of some sort, and a voltmeter that is straining close to the red.

"Hang, hang on a spot. Those tentacles appear to be regenerating - look! If you cut one off, two grow in place. Hold this Mr. Strange, would you?"

Reaches into his back pocket and pulls out a second sock puppet; one with what appears to be a bowl haircut and large pointy ears and a blue vest - it may even be a spock puppet; and pulls it over the new tentacle that wiggles from the doorway...

*still hacking away*

So what do we do then? 

*clicks spurs together.  Soars over the beast, narrowly avoids being crushed by 8 freshly grown tentacles*

If we can't *hacks off another limb* stop this brute soon we'll be crushed by calamari.

No, that's the Really-Not-Secret Society. You know, the one with all the flashing lights, sirens, fire engines, ambulances and local news crews crowding around. And members of this society merrily toasting marshmallows.

Bloody hell, Reynolds, that really is beyond the limit....
I've been carrying her around all this way - why didn't you say something earlier?

*checks underwear*

Yes, I'm right - that'll probably repel anything, including Old Ones.

Now, if it's got what it wanted, do we have to run? I know there's the little misunderstanding with the hacking-off and grilling bits of it, but it's gained twice as many...

Wait! What exactly is it doing with Miss Adler now?

*watches in horror as the tentacles grasp Miss Adler by the wrists and ankles and uses her like a marionette"

It's trying to communicate... she's like a puppet - doing... Oh, sweet nonny-nonny!

The monster!

Morris-dancing! That's going too far!

Well, it's now saying either "too much electricity" or "not enough electricity"... and my preference when in doubt is of course...

Beats me - you might be at the wrong bomb-damaged secret address, unless that big guy over there with the squidgy tentacles is him.

* is still pointing at the screaming electrified cephalapod when in a spasming lunge, it hurls Miss Adler back towards them, still twitching and semaphore/morris-dancing*

Alright, now at least it's stopped that puppet nonsense....



[and of course it goes to 11 - don't all SP dials go to 11? - except those that go to 12 or 13?]

"I'm with you, sir!"

* Unsheathes sword stick with unnecessary theatricality, followed by a rather over-enthusiastic flourish, which trims several nearby bushes and Cubinoid's mustache, spears a passing butterfly and emasculates the local ginger tom, but fails markedly to connect with even one of the beast's tentacles. *
