“Aw ye got tae try the fish an’ chips at Aqua Major,” Shade was laying on some ‘Blarney’ for Nik the Gyiik during the slow hours at Unsuitable Food Eat. “One o’ their Megalodons can be a feast fer millions.”

“Millions, is it,” said Nik. He was waiting for the punchline.

“Oh aye. But there’s only one problem.”

“Go on,” sighed Nik.

“Yer feedin’ everyone microfish.”

Nik looked to Rael, who was the only one moaning. “Microfiche is a primitive means of data storage available in the late twentieth century.”

“Ah,” said Nik. “Hahahahaha?”

Shayde blew a raspberry. “I gotta update me act…”

“I’m sure you’d be a hit amongst the SPOEns.”

“Aw bugger the SPOEns.”
