Cut to an interviewer in a rather dinky little set. On the wall there is a rather prettily done sign, not too big, saying 'Blood, Devastation, Death, War and Horror', as if it were a show's title.


Interviewer: (M.P.) Hello, good evening and welcome to another edition of Blood, Devastation, Death War and Horror, and later on we'll be meeting a man who does gardening. But first on the show we've got a man who speaks entirely in anagrams.

Interviewer: I'm sorry?


Man: 'A shroe! A shroe! My dingkome for a shroe!'


Interviewer: Ah, Ring Kichard, yes... but surely that's not an anagram, that's a spoonerism.
