The Prokaryotic Wizard
Malvolio Claxendell spots Tsetse, the bass guitarist of Scabby Felix, accidentally knock over Sister Metamoreful outside the bookmaker where she is heading in order to put a bet on the 2.40 at Lincoln. He (Malvolio) rushes forward to help her, and yells after the departing hoodie, ‘You’re a prokaryotic worm!’ Of course semantically he is wrong, but it sounds good. Sister Metamoreful sits up and rubs her knee. Thinking that Claxendell is some sort of assailant and not realising that he is trying to help, she clobbers him fiercely with her silk umbrella (since she is under an oath of silence).
