…the following silence was almost deafening!
Twacee (scoffin’ as she’s troffin’ wiv’ Russ n’ Lily n’ WidderBeth (…and where’s he been for the past several months?)): “Mmmmmmmmmffff! Gronfff! …as it 'appens!¹ scap! scap! chew! …as it 'appens!¹ scap! chew! mmmmmmmmffffffff! slurp! …ooooh, oi lurvs them flowers!”
WidderBeth: (…in her best Dame Edna voice): "…er, please don’t eat the glads, possum!
Edit: (Note to BroadcastEngineer: Please use less of the Roast-Potato filter, we’re having difficulty hearing Twacee’s CountryAnnunciation!)
