Back at the monkey headquarters: 1st Monkey: So, you're back? Ismael Oldton: Yes, Sir! 1st Monkey: But no success? Ismael Oldton: No, Sir! 1st Monkey: For banana's sake take off that stupid mask! Ismael Oldton (?): Ah, that is better. 1st Monkey: Your report! Ismael Oldton (?): Well they seemed interested in the monetary ideas - at least initially. But every time I came to explaining the whole thing they always backed out. 1st Monkey: So they were more clever than we thought? Ismael Oldton (?): It seems. Their resistance level was very high when it came to funny ideas about currency. 1st Monkey: Right then. Let us not waste anymore energy here. I've got a new plan. Ismael Oldton (?): Which is? 1st Monkey: There is a parallel world, not too unsimilar to this one. And there is a country which is just starting to set up an empire. I think it would be great if they would side with our monetary proposals. That would be soooooooooo funny! Ismael Oldton (?): Will they be so gullible? I mean, the whole currency is nonsense. Everyone can see it. 1st Monkey (giggles): Of course, we will have to make some adaptions. Change the names of the coins. Don't call them Pnence or Shnilling. And make two half-thingies be one "thingy" instead of three. I let you work that out. Ismael Oldton (?): Yes, Sir. I'll do my very best. 1st Monkey: One more thing - they will also not get my Gwuinee. It is just too cute. Let them have some of that scrap metal instead. Ismael Oldton (?): Aye, Sir. 1st Monkey: By the way, how are tulip prices doing these days? I heard they can be quite tasty.

Pontelli. An evening of tulip trade. Things are going well. (btw. the reading voice in your head for this should be the guy doing "extra credits" on Youtube...) Lady de Summer (on the left of the table): I want to sell 20 tulips. Sir Krantenhagen (on the very right): Yes, Mylady. There's plants and bulbs but I don't see none of them. Lady de Summer: Well, I am just a Lady, sitting across from you, wanting to sell some tulips. And certainly I have 20 tulips. Just not here and not with me. Sir Krantenhagen: So how do you want to sell them? There was a pause. Everyone glanced at the others. Lady de Summer: Certificate. Sir Krantenhagen: Sir Tifficate? Who's that? Lady de Summer: Cer-Ti-Fi-Cate. One word. I will sign a certificate. Like this one: (pulling up a pre-prepared document) Sir Krantenhagen: (thinking) Slim Shady: I think that will do. And it will free us from moving those tulips all around. Lady Beetle: And we can also sell tulips outside of the season. Sir Krantenhagen: You mean, just sell their certificates? There was a silent moment at the table. And then they all thought, that it was a good idea. (They did not know...) Sir Krantenhagen: ... and the price for a certificate will be? Lady de Summer: ... just like the added prices for all the bulbs and plants...
