A call to arms

on December 27, 2011

King: Enough is enough. Queen, where are you?

King: Darling, I really think we need to show that Godfrey gang that we were here first.

Queen: I completely agree, sweetie. Do you want me to call the kids?

King: Yes, please, and I think we should do it now.

Queen: Do you want me to do my special alarm squawk?

King: Oh, Queenie, that would be marvelous!

Peacock 1: Did you hear that?

Peacock 2: Yes, it’s the Queen calling us on the King’s behalf.

Peacock 1: Why doesn’t he call us himself? I know she adopted us but I can’t stand her; she is so bossy.

Peacock 2: Oh, get over yourself and get up. The King needs us!

Guinnea fowl 1: What’s going on? Which side are we on?

Guinnea fowl 2,3,4,5,6: I think we should stick with the peacocks.

White peacock: Come on, you guys – we have to support King against Godfrey – hurry up!

Other peacocks: Since when did Whitey become so full of himself?

White peacock: I will choose to ignore that comment in light of this situation. This is war, you morons!

Adolescent peacock 1: Do you think we can avoid this if we just stay here?

Adolescent peacock 2: Good idea!

Godfrey: Are you all ready?

The gang: Ready and waiting, sir.

      You should have seen the ensuing battle between Godfrey and King! It only lasted around 5 seconds and King won but wow. Godfrey was, and still is, a bit wary of King now – hehe!
