Box of 20 Jigsaw Puzzles: £1
The man wanted £1.50 for them, but Ted used his well-rehearsed armoury of facial expressions, including looks of horror and amazement, to knock him down to £1. That’s just 5p per puzzle, or .05p per not-very-well-cut thin piece.
Solar System Floor Puzzle: £1
This was bought from the same seller as the box of 20 jigsaw puzzles, and Ted attempted to pre-empt the price by offering 50p. The man explained that it was well worth £1, and actually it was, and so Ted coughed up having been assured that it was complete. It was.
Having bought this fine puzzle, Ted noticed, on an adjacent stall, two long furry things.
“What on earth are they?” queried Ted.
“Reindeer antlers for attaching to the side of your car,” was the response, implying that Ted must be mentally retarded. He felt such a fool – after all, they’re all over the place, aren’t they?
