Indeed, good Sir, indeed. It would seem that meal preparation in fraught with all manner of difficulties. Take the other day for example; after the rather unfortunate incident in the kitchen, the butler detailed Mr O'Shuffle to help the gamekeeper.
The local village fete was taking place in the grounds, and the gamekeeper was gathering some fowl for that evenings banquet. He needed someone to help wring the necks of the birds, and so he handed over a bird to Mr O'Shuffle and said "You there. Choke the chicken, will you."
When all the pandemonium had died down a bit, the vicar flatly refused to judge the yoghurt tasting competition, and the mayor's wife is expected to regain conciousness in the next day or so.
