Tourist: Yes, that's right. It's all due to a trauma I suffered when I
was a spoolboy. I was attacked by a bat.
Bounder: A cat?
Tourist: No a bat.
Bounder: Can you say the letter 'K'?
Tourist: Oh yes. Khaki, king, kettle, Kuwait, Keble Bollege Oxford.
Bounder: Why don't you use the letter 'K' instead of the letter 'C'?
Tourist: What you mean ... spell bolour with a 'K'?
Tourist: Kolour. Oh, that's very good, I never thought of that.
Classic. Okay back to metallurgy...
