A Shaky Start to George's Mission in France

George and Jack are in France, sent with the aid of King Freddie in reaction to King Pierre's request for assist with a pandemic of Bretton bongloppers. After spending a night time in a barn on a farm near Cherbourg, they went to a close-by farmhouse to ask for a jug of milk to take with their nettle tea. 'Milk! You need to be joking,' the farmer said, searching so irritated that George feared that he would possibly come after them with his pitchfork. 'Our cows and goats have not given any milk for months - no longer on the grounds that those blasted bongloppers swarmed up here from Brittany six months ago. There's a nest of them in the ones woods over there. My cows may not pass close to them and every one's as dry as England on a Sunday.'

George disregarded the taunt approximately Freddie now not permitting the sale of mead on the Sabbath. Alternatively he gave the farmer a reassuring smile and said that he could have the bongloppers underneath manipulate through lunchtime. Then he referred to as Jack and advised him to fetch the magic cake from the mule packs.

'but there may be no cake in the mule packs,' protested the wretched guy in acute distress.
'wherein is it then?'
'Feeding the fishes in the English Channel, or la Manche, as these humans call it.'
'Oh no!' cried George. 'you're no longer telling me that you really did throw all of it overboard.'
George dashed to one of the mules and opened the packs. They were empty. He rushed to the other animal with the identical end result. He fell to the floor and sat preserving his head in each fingers.
It took some time for the grin at the face beneath the new black beret to wear off, however when it did, Jack went over to his weeping grasp and stated lightly, 'don't worry, you continue to have the recipe, perhaps we can find a patisserie to bake some for us.'
bad George seemed up dazed, with tears going for walks down his cheeks, and stared into area. So Jack repeated what he had stated. Slowly it dawned at the patron Saint that there is probably a way to maintain his promise to the farmer. 'carry me the recipe,' he said.
'I don't have it; you usually keep it inner you left armour boot.'
'Then pull the boot off for me, my precise fellow.'
Jack gave a tug at George's proper boot. 'No, not that one, the other one!' stated George. After a strong pull the boot got here off all of sudden, sending the puller reeling backwards. 'You clearly should alternate your socks greater regularly,' said Jack, conserving his nose.
'it is okay so that you can criticise, you do not put on socks,' stated George.
'that is due to the fact you might not buy me any.'
'never thoughts that; in which's the recipe?'
'here it's miles!' cried Jack in triumph. 'but it is as damp and smelly as your vintage sock. We'd better let it air earlier than we take it to a baker.'
