Ern.: I'm wet. I'm cold. Nothing feels good. Wind knocked the chicken coop over!
Geo.: We don't keep chickens anymore, E(a)rnest.
Ern.: I know, but I was in it.
Geo.: I thought you bunked in the eaves, downslope from Roofcat.
Ern.: Roofcat snores, Geo., out both ends!
Geo.: So you've been sleeping in the chicken coop, I see. What happened then?
Ern.: " The wind began to switch - the house to pitch and suddenly the hinges started to unhitch!"
Geo.: That's from "Wizard of Oz".
Ern.: Uh, I got flung into a ditch. Lookit me!
Geo.: Ditch...unhitch, that's very good. But yes, I see you're uncomfortable. Your poor tail!
Geo.: Can we help?
Ern.: Do you have a little towel?
