Carnival 2012

Phoebe is making plans for next year's carnival.

"George and I want to do something together, so I was thinking that we could dress up as those two men."

"Which two men, darling?"

"You know, the one with the moustache" (she holds two fingers up to her top lip) "and the hair like that" (she flattens her fringe down onto her forehead) "and the other one with the hair like that" (she musses it up on top) "and the hat."

I pause. "Um, Hitler and Stalin?"

"I don't know their names. One of them's very fat and the other's very thin and they're funny. They were in some old films together."

"Ah, not Hitler and Stalin, then. Good. Laurel and Hardy is probably a much better idea..."
