    Clearly he’s been smoking rabbit.
    On a cloud.
    With his mum.
    Again.

    Harumph! Ladies! me? smoke?

    Meta-narrative:
    The key to unpicking the introductory paragraph is to locate key the missing comma, situated neatly between “leader” and “like”. This is where we fall into the topsy turvy rabbit hole of dopey syntax which eventually becomes random association. Why the missing comma? Well surely SOC wouldn’t stop for punctuation. “dead soviet leader like” refers to the delayed announcement of the death of their leaders at the time and the associated pretence. Why SOC? Well it’s a fancy way of saying “made it up as I went along” and we like our fancy airs here.

    Piffle and whiffle, young feller-me-lad, with your free association, and your broccolini. When I was your age we used to roast a brace of parson every yuletide. Made me what I am today.
    I roasted a duck tonight. Made a sauce in the roasting pan, deglazed with Marsala as suggested by a certain J. Oliver. Nice duck. Sauce was too sweet, not ‘pukka’ at all. Mr Oliver in disgrace (again).

    Hmmm. Brocollini, that well-known hallucinogenic substance of the Southern Hemisphere. That explains it all! And now you want to drag the vicar into your sordid stream of semi-consciousness. Where will it all end? Maybe with a snort of nuns??
