The Clopping Goat was busier than usual this late morn. Villagers roamed around outside waiting to get a table. My pub was emptied and I was quite furious.
I stomped over and lurked outside the back alley of the establishment. An aproned woman elbowed her way out of the backdoor.
“Pray tell, why dost ye have so many patrons?” I asked the matron who carried three pitchers to the well.
“Mine milkshake dost bring all the menfolk to the yard and verily ’tis better than thine!” she boasted.
“A milk- shake?” I queried, confused. “Ye shake the milk?”
“I might teach thee, but I’d have to levee a tidy fee.” She laughed and hurried off.

I would have to try this milk-shake. Perhaps the fee would be worth it.

    Hilarious redux on the challenge material. I had no idea what was going on right up until the milkshake line. I think I’ve grown to appreciate the subtlety with which challenge entries are labeled.

    Very cute. You write the dialogue very convincingly for the time.

    XD This, Elsha, has made my review-weary day. Nice way to twist around the lines!

    Verily, thy failure to attribute said sources is… troubling.

    This seemed really trite to me. Half of the text is needless detail setting up a joke that’s just a pop hit rephrased in fake olde english.

    @druhim, that was the idea! The challenge was to use the lines, I found this amusing..
