would appreciate & tell .... some of these are close ...

c.f. also, Frank's view of "what was funny" in the appendices,

For me, they do. :snooty:


"'In that case,' the reporter scoffed," Mattai paused for dramatic effect, the assembled men fell silent, "The headline will read:
'Bastard Alien Kills Family Pet'"

The bar erupted with laughter and cheering, as the hubbub of the night's celebrations resumed. Mattai disengaged himself from the throng and pushed towards the bar.

"I don't think that was very funny," muttered a stranger seated at the bar, Mattai paused for a moment, the stranger had not looked up.

One of the other off duty guardsmen joined them at the bar, "Don't be too harsh, we've all had a drink and it is the lad's birthday - put your money away Matt, I'll get these."

The stranger raised his head and glared at the two, "Fools... Fremen don't live in villages."

The second man leaned back, parting his jacket to reveal the ornate hilt of a blade bearing the insignia of Duke Leto's Household Guard, "Next you'll be saying lasguns can't take out a sandworm..."
