Pontelli. Busy market street. 

A client enters a shop.

Dr. Thaum: Hello there.

Fred the shopkeeper: Hello Dr. Thaum. An honour to see you here. What can I do for you?

Dr. Thaum: Where is that bonehead Callaghan? I thought I'd seen him run into this very boutique.

Fred the shopkeeper (looks under his desk): No, Sir, there's nobody in here but meself.

Dr. Thaum: So what should I be buying here? A parrot?

Fred: Sorry, we're right out of parrots. But I got a nice choice of cauldrons.

Dr. Thaum (unimpressed): Hmmm.

Fred: Or tulips. They are all the rage, Sir.

Dr. Thaum: Tulippps? Those flowery-thingies?

Fred: Precisely.

Dr. Thaum: Well, how much for that red one over there? 

Fred: The "Ad Rem" will be half a dubloon.

Dr. Thaum: Such much? Well, I'll have two then, still.

Fred: They are in high demand. But rest assured, you made a good deal here. Maybe in a week or two you could sell them again for 2 dubloons.

Dr. Thaum: If they don't wither until then.  Well, thanks and bye.
(leaves, shouting "Callaghan" while entering the street again).

(next person enters)

Fred: Hello,Sir. What can I do for you?

Ismael Oldton: You're a shopkeeper? You're into money?`Well, old chap, I got a great new idea for coins!

Fred (to himself): Oh dear, it is that strange guy from Corrington that everyone is talking about.

Ismael Oldton: Let me quickly explain. It is really easy and forward-looking. The main coin you will have is pnence. 

Fred: A pnence?

Ismael: Don't interrupt. Yes, a pnence. But there is more, of course. If you assemble 13 pnence, then you will get a shnilling.

Fred: A shnilling?

Ismael: Don't interrupt. With a shnilling, you will be very well off. But better, of course, with the next mighty coin: The shnilling-six-pnence.

Fred: What will that buy?

Ismael: Don't know. But much more than a pnence, that is for sure.

Fred: Have you thought this through, Sir?

Ismael: Of course, I am doing nothing else. This will be revolutionary!!! He he.

Fred: I'm afraid Sir, but we're closing.

Ismael: What? At four in the afternoon?

Fred: Such are the rules here in Eslandolea.

Ismael: Ok, ok, I will enlighten you further on another day. Till then fare thee well! 

(Leaves)

Fred: (sighs and quickly locks the door behind Ismael).

     (to himself:) I sold quite a lot of those tulips today. I probably should secure my supply. Then I can make a fortune!
              Of dubloons, of course, not of pnences, schmences...

Nice shop, I especially noticed the cash register. Fred is right to close the shop quickly before more idiots come in. Ismael Oldton seems crazy, such stupid coins will never exist.:pir_wacko:

 

I find the stories interesting and funny.

What a nice collection of those big round pots you have... :drool:  Great little shop interior.  But does the poor shopkeeper have to stand all day? :pir-look: :pir-grin:
