"Oh no, that wont do at all" says a voice from the bushes, before a misshapen hobbet stumbles out onto the road, clad with mud and leaves and holding a bright-coloured mushroom in one hand and a glass in the other.
"Not at all," he continues, "you see I have this...er allergy to turnips Oh but I do have to get in to Hornipipe - if, if only you'd been carrying ah mushrooms there would be no problem, but you see with turnips it will be utterly impossible, impossible! Oh..." he pauses suddenly to focus attention on the mushroom he is holding with the glass for several moments, "Ah no...", he says with some disappointment, dropping the mushroom on the road, "...but perhaps we can clear a small space? Turnip-free so to speak?" he finishes, casting a be-speckled gaze at the assembled hobbets.
