This thread is an excellent idea. The hilarious things that get posted on BCB deserve to be saved.

If you can't be bothered just let me know and i'll post the answer.

sorry but i'm a bit pissed and really quite proud of this, seeing as i typed it without editing it at all;

PERSONAE PISTUS DRAMATICUS:

SNARFYGUY, SNARFYGIRL: merchants from another town (on a mission of some import, yet seeking to be distracted by the pleasures of the city)

THE MARQUIS OF SCARBOROUGH: a nobleman, escorting his newly-met merchant friends.

ANDREA: a firebrand wench

GRIFF: a fool


SCENE: Oxford Street, London. It is 1am and the streets are alive with all manner of city life. Much drinking has occurred and a curry has been enjoyed by all present except Andrea who threw it up and wishes to make haste to her bed.


GRIFF: We are all but there, fair people! The hour of merriment is nearly upon us.

MARQUIS: Ding dong!

ANDREA: More merriment?

ALL: Shut up!

ANDREA: (under her breath) Assholes.

GRIFF: Behold "Blow Up"! A top London night out. Freakbeat, garage rock, R 'n' b and soul. More importantly, it's open til 4am.

SNARFYGIRL: Blimey!

SNARFYGUY: Awesome!

ANDREA: I'm going to be sick.

GRIFF: Enough of this social persiflage. Let's get wrecked!

ANDREA: We are wrecked.

ALL: Shut up!

[they approach the club]

GRIFF: After you, my fine, odd sounding friends.

SNARFY: Totally rad, dude!

SNARFYGIRL: Pearly kings and jellied eels!

[snarfy accidentally brushes against a bouncers shoulder on the way in]

BOUNCER: What manner of person is this before me? You shall not pass through to make merry. Try ye the club around the corner.

GRIFF: Sire, my friends have traveled many miles and, though weary, are keen to sample the delights of your establishment.

BOUNCER: Tough. You shall not pass.

MARQUIS: Ooh, i say.

HENRY V: Sorry, wrong play [he leaves]

GRIFF: Sire, may i be privy to the reasons for your bemusing decision?

BOUNCER: [indicating to snarfy] Your friend has no manners. What's more, i take not kindly to his jib. It seems poorly cut.

SNARFYGIRL: Do what, John? Leave it out.

SNARFY: Bummer.

GRIFF: Are you serious? My friends have traveled from the new world. They are indeed friendly and civil. Only an hour ago we enjoyed a curry together with something they call "tobacco", which wasn't as good as saag aloo, if i'm honest, but it was very kind of them. Afterwards, we smoked a potato together.

BOUNCER: That's as maybe, but they still shall not pass.

MARQUIS: Damn shame, old boy.

GRIFF: a pox upon your house!

BOUNCER: Be gone!

ANDREA: You fucking asshole!

GRIFF: Cunts! You've embarrassed yourself there, mate! Tossers the lot you!

[a scuffle breaks out]

ANDREA: You motherfuckers! Are gonna hit me? huh? huh? Come on, you assholes!

[she is dragged off by everone]

SNARFYGIRL: Leave him, Andrea. He's not worth it.

SNARFY: Awesome!

MARQUIS: Ding dong!

ALL: Shut up!!

[they leave, thirsts unslaked, yet laughing at their amusing escapade]

I think it's a great play!

My friends and I, under the direction of the renowned Sir Geoge Pistazalord, will endeavour to perform it this weekend.

We will send the royalty cheque pending attendance.
