The retinue wore togas, toked on opium and drank each's other's wine. They
nibbled peanuts, spoke of heinous and premeditated crimes between the

Pieces quivered their coctail sticks but were swallowed without a sound. A
trampolinist jumped too high came crashing to the ground at Lisa's party.
Isn't it a whizz!
