Master Nigel hath with great pride created the Hubcast. ‘Tis a wondrous calendar of events that do take place in every corner of our fair county. And all transmitted by means digital speedier than the swiftest flight of wingèd Mercury.
Verily they did make a fine spectacle on the greensward, and the sun did shine merrily.
Our hunger for fame had not been sated after this somewhat unsatisfactory encounter with the Great Beeb’s scribes. We therefore repaired to other pavilions there to satisfy a more pressing hunger. Many arrays of vittles there were throughout the Show, and we did fully sate our appetite with these excellent rolls of sausage.
Many fine enterprises had set up their pavilions at the Show like the one ye see here set up by Exeter’s splendid museum. Here we did chance upon Mistress Shelley, who is most learned in the science of costume through the centuries. We did discourse most pleasantly of such matters as threads, buttons and bobbins. We believe she was impressed by our skill with the needle, for each pearl on our richly embroidered doublet had been sewn by our fair hand.
These green men did mystify us with their jigs and jolly jumps. We did learn that they do celebrate ancient fertility rites. They did declare themselves impressed by our world-renowned prowess in wooing our most revered Virgin Queen.
Of a sudden we found ourselves being given proof of these ancient rites which a green man did perform most briskly on a young nymph he had encountered. ‘Twas a most jolly scene, with ribald comments a plenty made by the assembly.
This fellow in strange antique costume did boldly hail us as a fellow-pirate, asking us if we knew a certain Master Jonny Depp, yet we declared ourselves blameless in such matters. Some villainous and ignorant persons of the vulgar multitude do slander us in most ignoble fashion when they accuse us of piracy, but we found this fellow to be not such a knave and did make many jests together with these fair ladies.
