Herb: But that's absolutely awful Fraulein.. eh,Jones
June: June Jones.. Herr Neufeld
Herb: June like the month... how sunny.. thank you Fraulein Jones
June: Don't thank me, Herr Neufeld.. thank the Englpoise and Hurm Stores Incorporated for importing all the teddies and..
Herb: But it's just awful.. I can see the horror of it.. someone just tearing your teddies asunder and just.. erghh.. just well..
June: Yes, it defies the imagination, doesn't it, Herr Neufeld.. I was horrified..
Smith: And as the teddy buyer Herr Neufeld..
June: This is Mr Smith, the buyer, Herr Neufeld
Smith: How do you do
Herb: Occasionally Mr Smith, Occasionally
June: As I was saying Herr Neufeld..
Smith: Such an awful crime..
Herb: some crazed maniac.. bent on destruction...[shivers] or worse..
June: Worse, Herr Neufeld... worse?
Herb: Yes.. hardly a worse possibility can befall a Teddy
Herb: That too.. the final indignity..
Smith: Yes, bare ...
June: .... daylight robbery
Herb: Only, it was done in the middle of the night, at 3 am
Smith: That's right Herr Neufeld
Herb: Now tell me exactly what happened, Mr Smith !
Smith: Well, it's so far only conjecture, but all we really know is that .....
June: No, No, tell him the whole story Smithy
Smith: Well, it was like this Herr Neufeld...Englpoise and Hurm Incorporated, the well known womens underwear shops chain, invited us over from England in a kind of International Friendship deal.. you know like...
June: ..... like twinning towns... Dagenham and Dusseldorf for example... or.. or...Munchen and....Berwick on Thames..
Herb: I get you
Smith: Anyway, so our German counterparts are in England selling ladies.. er things and June and I here are selling ladies.. er .. things.. here
Herb: So far, so good
Herb: Good the... what happened last night...
June: Well, we arrived with a load of Teddy Bears in filmy silk things.. you know.. a sort of sales promotion idea
Herb: Ahem.. yes
Smith: Jolly good, they looked
June: On the Teddy Bears.. wouldn't be caught dead wearing that stuff myself... !
Herb: Oh, of course not ...
Smith: Where does that bring us to
Herb: You arrived with the stuff ...
June: Ah yes
Smith: And we dressed the Teddy Bears up in things..
June: Mostly those teddy things women wear
Herb: An interesting thought
Smith: Certainly is
June: Anyway, then we put the display together...that was a few days ago now..
Smith: And after a few days.. this happens!
Herb: Oh, dear!
Herb: So your display was ruined...!
Smith: Completely.. and June had been so artistic with it too!
