Ah, Peckery sir, now that you are back, could you please answer a most puzzling question...
Did you see any "poplar" bears while you were way up there? Because they greatly resemble trees, they have a tendency to sneak up on the unsuspecting. We have been much concerned because they apparently like to kidnap soft fuzzy things when they get ready to nap. These bears are, of course, not to be confused with the people eating "polar" bears.

I have never yet spoken a word of English to any of my children. They can speak as much English as they like to others, but when they talk to me they have to talk in Gaelic."
